The news of Sushant Singh Rajput hanging in his apartment last year on June 14 created massive outrage across the nation. There were various theories associated with his demise, none coming out of any concrete proof. And now nearly a year after his demise, his flatmate and friend Sidharth Pithani has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Hyderabad.
As per the reports, Sidharth has been arrested in the drug probe case. He was one of the four people present inside Sushant Singh's apartment when he committed suicide. The case of the late actor was shifted to the CBI after many murder angles were suspected. However, the CBI couldn't find anything other than the act of suicide and the verdict was passed. However, Sushant's then girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty were also arrested by the NCB for allegedly peddling drugs.
Last year in an interview with various tabloids, Sidharth had given a detailed account of all the happenings of June 14th. "On June 14, around 10 to 10:30 am, I came to the hall. I was listening to music in the music system. That time Keshav came to me and told me that Sushant wasn't opening the door. So, I went myself and knocked on his door which he did not open. Then I told this to Dipesh. Both of us started knocking on Sushant's door. But he didnt open. Around that time, Meetu called me and told me that she was calling Sushant but he wasn't answering the call," adding that when they broke into Sushant's room, he was found hanging."
