Rhea’s house raided, Showik’s tab reportedly seized by forensics

Yesterday, a five-member team of NCB raided Rhea’s house. According to reports, the NCB team also searched Rhea’s car, phone, and laptop. During the raid, Showik’s tab was reportedly seized by forensics and they reportedly found digital footprint over the darknet. Times Now claims that he had been doing the dealings and had made payments to Samuel Miranda and other members of the drug cartel using Rhea Chakraborty’s card.

The raid was conducted a day after the Mumbai court sent alleged drug peddler Zaid Vilatra to seven-day custody of the NCB. Zaid had confessed that he used to deal with Showik regarding the buying and selling of drugs.

Sources at the NCB revealed that Showik allegedly met drug peddler Basit Parihar at a football club in Bandra to gain access to drugs. Parihar was already in contact with another drug peddler named Sohail – who allegedly supplied Showik and Rhea marijuana.

Rhea has already been issued a notice in the NCB case and is likely to be summoned. 

WhatsApp chats of Rhea Chakraborty became the core of the investigation

The Whatsapp chat of Rhea Chakraborty with her acquaintances which were recovered by the ED, where they were seen discussion about the purchase of drugs, had become the core of the investigation into the drug angle in Sushant’s death case. It was this series of Whatsapp conversation, which was allegedly sent from Rhea Chakraborty’s mobile phone, that led the Narcotics Control Bureau to break into the entire drug ‘syndicate’.

The chats which were deleted were retrieved during the investigation by ED. After recovery of the messages, ED had informed the same to the NCB, after which NCB had registered a case in the matter and started a probe.
