Meanwhile, Kashyap also extended his support to actress Rhea Chakraborty who is sent to 14-day judicial custody by a local court in the drug case related to Sushant's death.
Rhea's bail application said no drugs or psychotropic substances have been seized from her and the allegations, if any, would pertain strictly to smaller quantities.
Narcotics Control Bureau arrested Rhea Chakraborty in the drug peddling case that came to light while investigating the death case of Sushant Singh Rajput. Her earlier bail plea was rejected by a magistrate court on Tuesday.
While Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik and Sushant's house manager Samuel Miranda had been arrested on Friday, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the NCB on Tuesday.
The official further said that the ED will also look after the angle of money generated through the drug trafficking and drug procurement. However, the NCB remand to court did not mention any consumption of drugs by Rhea and is still probing the matter. "Rajput's sister, Shweta Singh Kirti, who has been vocal on Twitter calling for Chakraborty's arrest under the hashtag "#ArrestRheaNow", responded to the news with a post, stating: "#GodIsWithUs".

"Therefore it is clear from the statement that the respondent is an active member of a drug syndicate connected with drug supplies", the NCB said. She spent the last night in the NCB lockup. His death sparked a political row and led to the arrest of another actor and Sushant's girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
"During her custody, she was coerced into making incriminatory confessions and that statement was retracted on September 8 itself", read the content from the bail application. As per reports, the sibling duo named over two dozen film industry personalities who might be summoned by NCB soon.
The actor also says that she "had no access to any legal advice during her questioning when she was interrogated for a minimum of eight hours at a stretch by multiple male officers".
