Sahil Zarru, who confessed to have delivered the drugs that almost claimed the life of former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan's son Rahul and resulted in the death of his aide Bibek Moitra, has admitted to being a drug courier, said a police official in New Delhi.
Sahil was one of the four youth present at the Thursday night party at Mahajan's residence. He was arrested from Srinagar on Saturday evening by the police from the studio of Aaj Tak where he told a stunned TV audience: "I am myself a victim."
"Sahil has admitted to being a drug courier, having his clientele in both Delhi and Mumbai," informed a senior police official here, on condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, Rahul is recovering at the Indraprastha Apollo Hospital where he and Moitra were brought after a latenight party at 7 Safdarjung Road bungalow allotted to the senior Mahajan. Moitra was declared "brought dead on arrival".
Sahil, who was brought to Delhi from Srinagar on Sunday afternoon was booked by Delhi Police on charges of consuming as well as providing drugs to Rahul and Moitra.
The hospital had initially said there were no traces of drugs in Rahul's blood, even as a private lab report found traces of cocaine in his urine sample.
The police are now awaiting the go ahead from Indraprastha Apollo Hospital authorities to question Rahul.
