Based on this, I told her that I would arrange five grams of bud (curated marijuana)… Then I contacted Abdel Basit Parihar, a friend of mine, to source bud and shared the rates of bud with Rhea and Samuel Miranda, as he used to be the house manager of Sushant then."
Going further in his statement, Showik also revealed that Samuel Miranda had contacted him on multiple occasions for arranging some drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput. His statement reads "Between 15.04.2020 and 17.04.2020, Sushant called me and conveyed me that his stock of bud and weed were about to over and the same was conveyed to me by Samuel Miranda. When Samuel Miranda initially requested me to arrange for weed or bud for Sushant, I said that I don't have many contacts to arrange bud and weed frequently. However, on 17.04.2020 Samuel again contacted me over WhatsApp chat and conveyed that his old suppliers like Karamjjeet (KJ) have run dry of drugs."
