Mumbai : The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Friday searched for a friend of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's in a drug case.
Assistant Director Rishikesh Pawar had skipped the agency's summons for questioning a day earlier, according to officials.
"We are looking for Sushant's friend and Assistant Director Rishikesh Pawar who has been absconding since yesterday," a senior NCB official told IANS.
Pawar had been summoned to appear for quizzing on Thursday but he made himself scarce.
This is the latest development on the drugs-related case stemming from the Bollywood actor Sushan's death at his Bandra flat in Mumbai on June 14.
The NCB had registered two cases on Enforcement Directorate (ED) request after a few alleged chats vis-a-vis drugs came to the fore in August last year.
The agency has since quizzed top Bollywood actors like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh and several others.
