After nabbing two peddlers with banned substances and cash in Mumbai, the Narcotics Control Bureau has now finally identified the prime suspect in an ongoing drug probe that began after the tragic and untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and it is a person named Sahil Shah. Both arrested drug peddlers have connections with Sahil Shah. NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede opened up about the same and said, ‘Sahil remained a puzzle for us for the last six months, we raided his house in Malad on Monday night, where his mother and wife were there. Incidentally, he stays in the same complex where Sushant Singh Rajput used to stay earlier. Sahil used to supply drugs to Karan Arora and Abbas Lakhani both of whom were arrested by the NCB last August.’ Notably, both Karan Arora and Abbas Lakhani got arrested by the NCB last year and were later released on bail. As per the reports, Sahil Shah is married to a film actress and is presently absconding. Well, since the emergence of the drug angle in Sushant’s death case, the central agency has already made several arrests and even questioned many B-Town celebs like Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and many others. Earlier, the NCB had also filed its charge sheet in the court regarding its drug probe and named 33 accused in it including actress Rhea Chakraborty last month. As per the reports, the charge sheet submitted before the special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act court consisted of around 12,000 odd pages and included the statements of 200 witnesses. For the unversed, ‘Kedarnath’ actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Bandra apartment in Mumbai on June 14, 2020. Although Mumbai Police termed the death as a suicide, his fans and family suspected foul play in his death and the case was later transferred to CBI, after which the drug angle emerged in the case, allowing the NCB to start a parallel investigation of their own.
