Mumbai, Sep 5 (IANS) A court here on Saturday sent late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik and his house manager Samuel Miranda to four days’ NCB custody till September 9.

The duo were brought to the court after a medical checkup at a Sion hospital.

The court sent them to custody till September 9.

The development comes a day after Showik and Miranda were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) following day-long questioning by the drug law enforcement agency as part of its probe into the drug angle in the Bollywood star’s death.

The duo was arrested after the agency got adequate evidence against them about their involvement in the drug case.
