Rhea Chakraborty’s bail pleas got rejected after 14 days in judicial custody. She is likely to stay in jail until 6th October. Rhea was arrested on September 9 on drugs charges linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput death investigation.
The 28-year-old actor, who dated Sushant Singh Rajput in the months before his death on June 14, has been accused of organizing drugs for him.
The Narcotics Control Bureau described Rhea Chakraborty as an “active member of a drug syndicate”.
So far NCB arrested 18 people linked to the procurement and consumption of drugs in Mumbai.
As per some reports, NCB is likely to summon actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, and Rakul Preet. The agency today questioned top Bollywood A-lister Deepika Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash and talent agency executive Jaya Saha – who was questioned for the second day. Sushant Singh Rajput’s manager Shruti Modi has also been questioned.
After multiple searches, the anti-drugs agency based their case on 59 grams of weed found on drug dealers allegedly known to Sushant Rajput. According to the agency, their questioning led them to Rhea Chakraborty and her brother.
