Photos, videos show Sushant's flatmate Pithani passed on contraband to late actor: Court

The court said Pithani and Rajput’s housekeeper Dipesh Sawant were using bank application for making payments for drugs purchases

Photographs and videos recovered by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) show that Siddharth Pithani was passing contraband material to his flatmate, late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, when they smoked together, the special Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court observed while rejecting Pithani’s bail plea.

In his detailed order, special NDPS judge DB Mane said the material on record prima facie shows involvement of the applicant , Pithani, in the procurement, transportation, sell, purchase, consumption and preparation of the contraband. “This material on record prima facie establishes the applicant’s involvement in illegal activities - abatement and conspiracy,” the court added.

On December 14, the court rejected Pithani’s bail plea. The detailed order became available on Saturday. Pithani was arrested May 26, 2021 after the NCB filed charge-sheet against him.

The court said Pithani and Rajput’s housekeeper Dipesh Sawant were using bank application for making payments for drugs purchases, using code words like “Pooja Samagri” as reference in the net banking application.

Advocate Taraq Sayyed had argued on behalf of Pithani that his was a case similar to that of Bollywood Actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, who has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court. There was no recovery of any contraband material from Pithani as well and there is no evidence in the form of medical test,” Sayyed had said.
