A few days ago, late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau from Hyderabad in the drugs case.
According to Mid Day, the NCB was looking out for Pithani since August 2020. He was amongst the four people who were present at Sushant’s home in Mumbai when he was found hanging in his room on June 14, 2020.
After Sushant’s demise, Siddharth was called for several rounds of questioning by the NCB. Later, Siddharth had deleted his Instagram account.
The report states that the NCB was able to track Pithani because of his new Instagram handle. He had shared pictures from his gym in Thirupathi and even tagged the location on his Instagram profile. Siddharth had also posted a picture from his engagement. Have a look:
Reportedly the NCB then reached the gym mentioned in Pithani’s post, but unfortunately failed to get him. Sameer Wankhede, Zonal director of NCB Mumbai told Mid-Day that Pithani didn’t respond even after receiving summons from them and said that NCB was constantly tracking him.
Soon after Siddharth Pithani’s arrest, Sushant Singh Rajput’s house helps, Neeraj and Keshav were also summoned for further investigation.
