Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister, Shweta Singh Kirti, shared a jubilant tweet after the Narcotics Regulate Bureau (NCB) conducted a raid at Rhea Chakraborty’s house on Friday morning. “Good going NCB… Thank You God. #GreatStartNCB,” she wrote on Twitter.
The NCB joined the investigation into Sushant’s death after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) found evidence of a drugs angle while taking a look into financial irregularities. The late actor’s circle of relatives has alleged that Rhea administered drugs to him without his knowledge, a charge that she has denied.
Good going NCB… Thank You God. 🙏 #GreatStartNCB

NCB sources told Hindustan Times that Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda and Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty’s names were revealed all the way through the interrogation of two alleged drug peddlers. The agency conducted searches at their residences on Friday morning and summoned them for questioning at their office in South Mumbai.
A senior IPS officer from NCB said, “Some evidence has been collected from the house of Miranda and Showik all the way through the searches conducted. But the investigation is at a very preliminary stage and details of the evidence gathered from their residence cannot be revealed these days.

Earlier, in an interview to India Today, Rhea denied any links with drugs and claimed that Sushant was once a recreational marijuana user. “Yes, Sushant used to smoke marijuana, he used to take it even before he met me. He started this all the way through Kedarnath. I used to keep watch over him in this branch only. He was once a man of his own choices and nobody could stop him,” she said.
Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde had also issued a observation that she had never taken drugs in her life and was once willing to undergo a blood test to prove it.
Sushant’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against Rhea in July, alleging abetment to suicide. Vikas Singh, the lawyer representing Sushant’s circle of relatives in the case against Rhea, said in a press convention on Wednesday, “After the events that have unfolded after the registration of the FIR, the circle of relatives has doubts that it could be homicide as polite. But we are leaving it to the investigation. We are hoping that the CBI will unravel this.”
