Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani had moved the court seeking bail for the second time. When ETimes contacted NCB Zonal
Director Sameer Wankhede about this development, he said, “We will be filing a reply to the bail application, opposing his bail”. The court had rejected Pithani’s earlier bail application but given him permission for his marriage, which was scheduled for June 25. He surrendered himself before the court on July 2 and since then is in the custody of the Narcotics Control Bureau.
Pithani was traced by the NCB through his social media post and arrested from Hyderabad on May 28 for his alleged links in the Sushant Singh Rajput drug case. He was the first person to find the actor hanging in his bedroom on June 14 last year. Pithani was the one who had lowered SSR‘s body even before the family members arrived at the actor’s residence. Sushant’s friend Rhea, her brother Showik, and other staff members including Samuel Miranda and Deepesh Sawant were arrested by the NCB. The other housemates Keshav and Neeraj, who were recently questioned by the NCB, have hinted at Pithani’s role in the drug case.
