Pithani was traced by the NCB through his social media post and arrested from Hyderabad on May 28 for his alleged links in the Sushant Singh Rajput drug case. He was the first person to find the actor hanging in his bedroom on June 14 last year. Pithani was the one who had lowered SSR‘s body even before the family members arrived at the actor’s residence. Sushant’s friend Rhea, her brother Showik, and other staff members including Samuel Miranda and Deepesh Sawant were arrested by the NCB. The other housemates Keshav and Neeraj, who were recently questioned by the NCB, have hinted at Pithani’s role in the drug case.
SSR passed away on June 14 last year and the subsequent investigation by the police and other agencies has been going on for more than a year. There’s still a lot of speculation around his death, with Sushant’s family pursuing multiple cases in the court.
