The NCB had initiated a probe after it received a communication from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), with regard to chats related to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
Sushant died on June 14 in Mumbai, after which the Mumbai Police began investigation into the case. In July, KK Singh, father of the late actor, filed an FIR in Patna, accusing Sushant’s girlfriend, Rhea and her circle of relatives, of abetment to suicide and siphoning off of funds. In her defence, Rhea refuted all charges levied against her and her circle of relatives. After a Supreme Court judgement in August, the case used to be transferred to Central Bureau of Investigation.
