Sushant Singh Rajput death case drug probe: Shruti Modi not quizzed as NCB member tests positive for Covid-19Updated: Sep 16, 2020 23:34 IST
A member of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) probing the alleged drug angle in Sushant Singh Rajput case has tested positive for Covid-19. Following this, Shruti Modi, the former business manager of Rajput, who was summoned by the agency for questioning, was sent back on Wednesday.
The test results of the other members of the investigating team have come negative.
NCB has so far arrested 18 people, including Rajput’s girlfriend actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, and drug peddlers from Mumbai and Goa.
NCB deputy director KPS Malhotra said, “One of the team members of the SIT (special investigation team) has tested positive for the coronavirus. We received the antigen test report on Tuesday morning. Other members of the NCB team were also tested and none of them is found to be infected with the virus.”
“NCB had summoned Modi and Rhea Chakraborty’s talent manager Jaya Saha to join the investigation. Modi had reached NCB’s guest house in south Mumbai, but she was sent back. Saha was on her way, so she was asked not to come as one member from NCB had tested positive” said Malhotra, adding that both of them will be summoned later.
Meanwhile, three drug peddlers Karamjeet Singh Anand, Dwayne Fernandes and Ankush Anreja, who were in NCB custody, were produced in the court on Wednesday. They have been remanded in judicial custody till September 23.
