Siddharth Pithani, room-mate of Sushant Singh Rajput, was yesterday (June 17) granted interim bail till July 2 by a special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court. He had been arrested on May 26 in the drugs case related to Sushant’s death. Pithani had moved the court to seek bail for his own marriage in Hyderabad on June 26.
The court said that Pithani will have to keep a deposit of Rs. 50,000 which would be refunded once he reported to court on July 2. The room-mate, who was arrested for allegedly buying drugs for Sushant, was directed not to commit a similar offence while on bail or to tamper with prosecution witnesses. He was also asked to submit his cell phone and landline numbers.
