The case surrounding illegal drugs in the mysterious death of Sushant Singh Rajput has taken shape with every passing day. The late 34 year old actor was found dead in his Bandra home on June 14. While the initial police report called it a suicide the recent CBI inquiry might differ severely in its conclusion. While there is still no proof behind the reality of the actor’s death many have claimed that Sushant never consumed drugs.
One such man is Sabir Ahmed who was the ex assistant to Sushant Singh Rajput. In a recent interview Ahmed said that he was with the actor constantly and he would know if Sushant ever consumed drugs. In an interview with IANS Ahmed said, "I worked with Sushant Sir off and on, taking breaks in between. My last stint with him was from December 2018 to around January or February 2019. I took leave in February. I worked as his personal assistant when he was promoting ‘Sonchiriya' and shooting for ‘Dil Bechara'. I used to assist him on photoshoots, film promotions and shooting. At that time I stayed with Sir in his 16th floor apartment.”
"If Sir consumed drugs at the time I worked with him, I would surely have known. I was there with him 24X7. I am hearing so many names of drugs now -- ML or MD, or whatever it is. If he was consuming drugs at that time, I would have surely known these names. I am shocked to hear about these drugs. However, I am talking about only the time I used to work with him. I don't know what happened after I was fired," he added.
Sabir also spoke of his own relationship with his old boss. He said, "I loved Sir so much and was loyal to him. Had I known that something wrong was happening to him, I would have at least tried to do something to help. I can do anything for Sir, because he was extremely caring towards his staff and he loved us. I never thought I would have to see this day. My heart breaks to refer to sir in the past tense. Maybe he is not physically present with us today, but he will be alive in our hearts forever.”
