SSR’s flatmate Siddharth Pithani was recently arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in relation to the case. Singh adds, “I am quite hopeful that they will able to unravel the mystery and they are working on it lets keep our fingers crossed. As far as the arrest of Siddharth Pithani is concerned it is a kind of poetic justice that he has at least gone to jail.”
Pithani, who was working on SSR’s ‘Dream 150’ project, was allegedly the one who saw the actor hanging in his bedroom on June 14 and was questioned by the CBI in the case. Singh says, “I have been saying this for a really long time that he should be arrested and the reason being he was there with Sushant when Rhea Chakraborty went away and the day Sushant was found dead. Siddharth was the one who opened the room and he was the one who called the locksmith and was the one to lower the body of the actor, so he is very crucial to the case in every which way, whether it is murder or abetment to suicide he will definitely be involved in it.”
Sushant Singh Rajput’s family has also filed a suit against those planning to make a film on the actor’s life and Singh is quite confident that they will get an injunction in the case.
