September 6, 2020: Actor Rhea Chakraborty's father Indrajit Chakraborty on Saturday issued a statement condemning the arrest of his 24-year-old son Showik Chakraborty in a probe into allegations of drug abuse surrounding Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput's death in June.

"Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I'm sure next on the line is my daughter and I don't know who is next thereafter. You have effectively demolished a middle class family. But of course, for the sake of justice everything is justified. Jai hind," the statement from Lt Col Indrajit Chakraborty (Retd), who has also been questioned by the CBI for days, read.

Showik Chakraborty was arrested on Friday by the Narcotics Control Bureau or NCB along with Samuel Miranda, Sushant Singh's house manager, and charged with various sections of the anti-drug law. Both have been sent to the agency's custody till Wednesday.

As per reports, no drugs have been found on Showik Chakraborty yet and the NCB's case so far has hinged on the discovery of 59 grams of curated marijuana from two men identified as Abbas Lakhani and Karan Arora and the links they allegedly had with those close to Sushant Singh.

In its application seeking Mr Chakraborty custody, the NCB said he had "given so many names with whom he was dealing in drugs" and will now be confronted with his sister Rhea Chakraborty, who has been summoned for questioning today.

Various angles surrounding the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, are being probed by three federal agencies, including the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the NCB.
