Showik was arrested by the NCB on September 4, and was in the NCB remand till September 9. He was later sent to judicial custody and has been in jail since then.
Meanwhile, his sister Rhea Chakraborty, who was also arrested in the same case, was released on bail recently, after spending 28 days in jail. Rhea was the late Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend.
