On the 11th of September, a special court of Mumbai, announced its verdict in the Rhea Chakraborty case.
The Mumbai special court denied the bail to the actress, her brother and 4 others, who were arrested by the NCB.
The judgement of the Mumbai court comes a day after petition review. On the 10th of September, the special Mumbai court heard a petition filed by Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty. The duo, Rhea and Showik filed a petition demanding bail under the DPS Act (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) after the Magistrate court rejected their bail requests.
On the 8th of September, Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) alleging their involvement in drugs.
The NCB which was investigating the drug angles in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case arrested Ms. Chakraborty for procuring and consuming drugs.
The arrest comes three days after she was questioned by the NCB.
According to the initial investigation of the NCB, Rhea used to obtain drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput and also used to “manage finances for drug procurement along with Rajput.”
Rhea and her brother Showik have been booked under Section 27 A of the NDPS Act.
The act provides for punishment for financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders.
If found guilty, the two can face imprisonment for minimum 10 years and can also be fined Rs. 2 lakh.
In addition to the NCB, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are also investigating the Sushant Singh Rajput Death case.
Both the ED and the CBI filed a case against actor Rhea Chakraborty in connection to the Sushant death case.
Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on the 14th of June allegedly committed suicide at his Bandra residence in Mumbai.
Initially, the case was being investigated by the Mumbai Police. However, after several petitions in the SC and pressure from social media, the case was handed over to the CBI.
As of now, due to the drugs and the money laundering angle, the NCB and the ED are also involved in the late actor’s death case investigation.
