In the drugs case, the investigating agency has got great success. Sushant’s friend and assistant director Hrishikesh Pawar has been taken into custody. Pawar, who had been trying to escape from the investigative agency for a long time, climbed up to the NCB on Tuesday. It is being told that from 8 January NCB was searching for Rishikesh. He was accused of supplying drugs to Sushant Singh Rajput. Dipesh Sawant, who worked with the actor, had named Rishikesh Pawar several times due to questioning.
Similarly, in the month of September last year, Rishikesh Pawar was also questioned. Later, Hrishikesh did a number of legal tricks to avoid arrest. He had requested anticipatory bail in the court, but did not get any relief. It was only after that shock from the court that the NCB swung into action and raided its Chembur home. But upon reaching there, NCB finds that Rishikesh has run away. Since then, the investigating agency was constantly looking for him.
Also, now that he has been arrested, NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede has reacted to this. He has said- Rishikesh Pawar is the culprit in CR No 16/20. He was also the assistant director of Sushant’s Dream Project. Several evidences confirm that Pawar supplied drugs to Sushant. A laptop has also been seized in the search of his house. Keeping in mind that before Dipesh Sawant, Hrishikesh Pawar used to supply drugs to Sushant. In view of the inquiry, Dipesh himself confirmed it. Talking about Deepesh, he is also accused of supplying drugs to Sushant. It is reported that she used to bring drugs for Sushant only after Riya Chakraborty spoke.
