In this case, the NCB has arrested her younger brother Showik Chakraborty (24), Rajput ‘s house manager Samuel Miranda (33) and Dipesh Sawant, a member of the actor ‘s staff, over the last two days.

Samuel Miranda and Showik Chakraborty were arrested Friday after being interrogated by the NCB, which is probing reports of drug abuse involving the death of Mr. Rajput in June. They were charged under several parts of anti-narcotics laws, sources said.
The NCB team raided Showik Chakraborty and Mr. Miranda’s homes early Friday together with the police officers. Women officials were included in the search teams, wearing masks and gloves and with several vehicles.
KPS Malhotra, who heads the agency’s probe team, was the head of the search and told reporters that Showik and Miranda’s housing was being searched as a “procedural” act. Rhea Chakraborty and Showik live in the same house.
The agency is still finding additional documentation, and search teams have confiscated some records. Says another senior official. They said that both Showik and Miranda were called during the investigation.
The two men were taken by the NCB search team later in the day and questioned at the city office of the department.
