MUMBAI: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested actress Rhea Chakraborty in a drugs case related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Later in the day, her bail plea was rejected by a magistrate court and she was sent to judicial custody till September 22.
She is likely to appeal before the sessions court on Wednesday. Rhea Chakraborty, who dated Sushant Singh Rajput in his final months, has been charged with organising drugs for the Bollywood star after three days of questioning.
“Rhea has been arrested and the due process of informing the family has been completed,” NCB Deputy Director (Operations) KPS Malthotra said. The NCB said they placed Rhea under arrest based on WhatsApp chats and the statements of the other accused.
“We arrested her, which means we have enough evidence. Since we have already questioned her in the past few days, we don’t need to interrogate her any more,” said Deputy DG Mutha Ashok Jain.
