But there seems to be a big break in the case; Mumbai Mirror has reported that the Amboli police probing into the murder case suspect that she was in touch with drug peddlers.

Suspicions of involvement of drugs emerged when police found a packet of white powder when they discovered her body. Samples of the powder have been sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for chemical analysis but the first test available with police showed the powder was methamphetamine (MD or Meow Meow).

The Mumbai Mirror report also stated that the two watchmen at Shree Bhairavnath SRA Society, where she had rented a oneroom apartment, have pointed there fingers at two men who regularly visited her to give her 'medicines' and these men were the last ones to enter the deceased actress's flat. One of the watchmen told the police that the two men never drew suspicion because Choudhary identified them as her friends. Senior inspector Bharat Gaikwad of Amboli police station said, "All angles including drugs are being probed. The accused will be nabbed soon."

Police speculate that she had frequent fights with these drug peddlers because she was unable to pay them. Choudhary was frequently out of work because her acting career never really took off. The two men who visited her house might have had a altercation with her regarding the payment for drugs.

Kritika Choudhary's ex husband Vijay Jagatnarayan Dwivedi was also arrested in connection to the murder, in addition to being accused of conning a man out of money. Dwivedi is now under arrest for conning someone for Rs 55 lakh.
