New Delhi: Arrests made by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) proves the fear of Sushant Singh Rajput’s family that there was something very big that Mumbai Police wanted to hide, the lawyer of Rajput’s family said on Saturday.

Advocate Vikash Singh, lawyer of the family, said there are several angles in the case and added that the family hopes that more of them would come to light.

“Arrests by the NCB prove the fear of the family that there was something very big that Mumbai Police wanted to hide. Clearly, there are several angles in this case. The family of Sushant Singh Rajput hopes that more angles will come out,” Singh said.

The NCB had yesterday arrested Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik Chakraborty and her associate Samuel Miranda under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in a case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.

The two accused persons was produced before a Mumbai court for custody in the case. Earlier, the NCB had arrested two others — Zaid Vilatra and Kaizen Ibrahim — in the matter.
