Rhea Chakraborty Arrested in Drugs Case
According to the latest headlines, Rhea has been accused under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act for her alleged part in the drugs’ side that has surfaced during an inquiry into the June 14 death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Rhea, who has all along declared innocence, was immediately sped away for a compulsory medical test. She is expected to be conferred by the NCB before a court for her remand, while her legal team tries to get her bailed out.
Rhea Chakraborty’s family and lawyer had previously indicated that they expected the actor’s arrest after her brother, Showik, was arrested on Friday.
“Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I’m sure next on the list is my daughter and I don’t know who is next consequently,” Rhea’s father, Lt Col Indrajit Chakraborty (retd) said in a heartfelt statement over the weekend.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s post-mortem had shown that he died by suicide. His father, though, filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, accusing her of pushing his son to suicide and plundering his wealth. Chakraborty has rejected all the accusations on many occasions.
Now, the investigation team has confirmed that the actress had connections with drug peddlers and she worked as a drug supplier for demised actor Sushant Singh Rajput. However, Rhea denied she had ever used drugs.
