A special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court in Mumbai on Friday asked Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) to file a reply by June 16 on the bail application filed by actor Sushant Singh Rajput's flatmate Siddharth Pithani in connection with the drug case linked to the actor's death.
Pithani is arrested by NCB for procuring and consuming contraband in a case related to Sushant Singh Rajput's death. Pithani has sought bail on the grounds of parity as earlier accused arrested in this case on same charges are given bail by the court. Advocate Tarak Sayyad represented Pithani.
He, in his plea, argued that according to the Supreme Court order last year statements of witnesses against him, in this case, don't have evidentiary value so they can't be relied on as evidence.
The plea also mentioned that he is scheduled to get remarried later this month so he should be considered for bail.
