The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday arrested Siddharth Pithani from Hyderabad in its ongoing probe into Bollywood-drugs nexus, in connection with actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
Pithani, who had been questioned by the NCB last year, was Sushant's former flatmate and one of those who reportedly found the actor's body hanging from the ceiling fan in 2020.
On May 7, NCB arrested Hemant Shah alias Maharaj from Goa in connection with Sushant's death. Shah had allegedly supplied drugs to Anuj Keshwani and Regal Mahakaal, two local suppliers, who were also being investigated for the actor's death.
Pithani's arrest comes just ahead of Sushanat's first death anniversary. A team of NCB, led by Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede, had launched a search for Pithani who was eventually traced in Hyderabad. Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found dead in his Bandra apartment on June 14, 2020.
