Reportedly, Showik also claimed that the late actor himself asked for curated marijuana and the buds from him.
Rhea has previously stated that Sushant Singh Rajput would regularly smoke marijuana. This is a claim many of his fans deny.
Showik Chakraborty also mentioned that before the coronavirus lockdown in March 2020, he attained drugs through Basit Parihar.
This contact was made through getting in touch with the drug dealer, Zaid Vilatra.
He further added that Sushant’s former manager Samuel Miranda then attained the buds in a bag from outside an eatery in Bandra, Mumbai.
To clarify, buds have 28% – 35% tetrahydrocannabinol. This substance is extremely detrimental.
According to another report by Republic TV, Showik had established connections to Mumbai’s drug cartel.
This led him to get into contact with the drug dealer, Abdul Basit Parihar at a football club in Bandra. As a result, they struck up a friendship.
From there he was introduced to another drug peddler, Kaizan Ibraham.
Not only that but the report went on to reveal the names of several drug dealers like Sohail. He was reportedly the man who supplied Showik with buds.
Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty’s bail plea was denied by the magistrate court.
