The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday evening arrested assistant film director Rishikesh Pawar in connection with a drugs case linked to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, an official said.
The update is that Rishikesh Pawar was absconding for the last one month or so and finally the cops nabbed him. NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede said that the name of Pawar, who was a friend of the late actor, had cropped up during interrogation of other accused arrested earlier in the case.
The update is that he was the one who was regularly supplying drugs to Sushanth. The NCB is also probing the alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus and had conducted multiple raids over the last few months. The central anti-drugs agency had also arrested a number of drug peddlers.
