A special NDPS Mumbai court on Wednesday denied bail to Siddharth Pithani, Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmate, in a drugs case linked to the Bollywood actor’s death in June 2020. Pithani was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on May 28 this year from Hyderabad and he is currently in judicial custody.
He has been booked under section 27 (A) (financing illicit traffic and harboring offenders) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, among other charges. Pithani had sought bail claiming that he had been framed up in a false case. He was never found in possession of any drugs and nothing that could suggest he was involved in drug trafficking was recovered from him, the bail application said.
