The 14-day judicial custody of actress and model Rhea Chakraborty will be ending today after the investigating agency arrested the actress for her alleged involvement in a drug case linking to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case.
The 28-year-old was arrested on the basis of statements from other accused who have been arrested in connection with the case. Rhea was confronted with her younger brother Showik Chakraborty, Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda and his house staff Dipesh Sawant to ascertain their roles in an alleged drug racket.
A special court had denied bail to Chakraborty on September 11, saying if she was released on bail she might alert others and they might destroy evidence. Chakraborty, in her plea, had stated that she was innocent and falsely implicated. She has been booked under several sections of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985, which provides for punishment for financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders.
