In the latest development in the drug probe related to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, it has now been revealed that alleged drug peddler Rahil Vishram, who was arrested on Friday, was referred as ‘Sam Drug Uncle’ in the film industry.
Vishram was apprehended from his residence in suburban Versova and arrested after questioning in the drugs case related to Rajput’s death.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) likely to seek his custody in the court as the agency believes he can be a crucial connector who can lead NCB to the corridors of Bollywood. Rahil used to operate under a handler who is also known as a ‘boss’ in the film industry.
The apparent handler had belonged to Bollywood, he could have been an actor or a producer. Eventually, he had given up all that but still part of the film industry where he was distributing and was the main supplier of the drugs such as ‘Malana Cream’ to the A-listers.
