Sidharth Pithani – a man who shot to instant shame just days after Sushant Singh Rajput’s death because by all accounts he was the one who last saw him alive and he was the first one to see him dead. In fact, he was the one who had lowered his body even before the famly members arrived at the actor’s residence.
Before we move forward, just to let you all know, I had been traveling to the UK and then India for personal and family work and emergencies but am now back to the base so expect more stories and keep showering your support by subscribing and connecting on Instagram Facebook and Twitter.
Now, Sid Pit, as we fondly call him, has become the man to do the maximum jail time from Sushant’s close circle in the drugs case, but today, he was finally granted bail by the Bombay High court,.
Siddharth Pithani, who lived in Sushant’s flat and worked under him on a project, was arrested in a drugs case linked to SSR’s death.
Initially, Pithani was a free bird, hopping news channels on prime time debates and doling out media bytes to all and sundry about the moments leading up to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. But soon, he started getting caught in his own web of discrpeancies in statements and SSR’s fans and media started pointing out the obvious mismatches and logical loopholes in his statements.
While the Mumbai police or CBI never really pulled him up for the alleged discrepancies in his statements, the Narcotics Control Bureau soon became hot on his trail. After a few dramatic run-ins with the NCB, Sid Pit went in for good in May 2021.
According to the NCB, he had been on the run after appearing before them, a few times in Mumbai, when he was being questioned. Siddharth Pithani was caught by the NCB in May 2021 from Hyderabad after he put up a social media post that was spotted not just by some overzelous youtubers covering the SSR case, but also by the NCB. He was arrested and has been in judicial custody since then.
But amidst all of this, he decided that he wants to get married to his sweetheart and so he was given an interim relief and not bail. The then NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede gave him 10 days chutti to go get hitched in June and come back to his real sasural on 2nd July.
Siddharth Pithani has been in the jail for over a year under section 27 (A) for financing illicit traffic and harboring offenders of the NDPS Act, among other charges.
All through this while, Siddharth Pithani has been seeking a bail claiming that he had been framed in a false case. He pleaded that he was never found in possession of any drugs and nothing that could suggest he was involved in drug trafficking was recovered from him. Sounds similar to what Aryan Khan was saying right? Finally, today, Justice Bharati Dangre granted bail to Pithani on a bond of 50,000 rupees.
Sidharth Pithani feels he was stabbed by his own. Sushant’s other housemates Keshav and Neeraj, who were also questioned by the NCB, were the ones who hinted at Sidharth Pithani’s role in the drug case. Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea also never liked him, and was questioned many times by NCB where she reportedly spilled many beans about others including many btown stars. She also spent a month in jail. Her brother Showik, and other staff members including Samuel Miranda and Deepesh Sawant were all arrested by the NCB. Showik spent much more time than Rhea but now both are out on bail until the 12th of July at least when their matter will come up for hearing once again as the NCB has filed draft charges against them. This means that if these charges are proved then the two siblings could once again go to jail.
