A special court in Mumbai will hear the bail applications of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik on Thursday, the actor’s lawyer said on Wednesday. Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday for her alleged involvement in a drugs case linked to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Chakraborty was produced before a local court in Mumbai after her arrest on Tuesday. The court rejected the actor’s bail plea and sent her to judicial custody till September 22.
After her arrest, Chakraborty was taken for a medical check-up and Covid-19 test, following which she spent the night at NCB’s office in south Mumbai and was shifted to Byculla jail on Wednesday.
The NCB has claimed in the remand application that Chakraborty used to procure drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput. The agency has also claimed that Chakraborty also used to “manage finances for drug procurement along with Rajput”.
Chakraborty was arrested after three days of questioning by the NCB which has already arrested her brother Showik, Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda and his house help Dipesh Sawant.
Rhea Chakraborty has also been under the scanner of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED) for different angles in the probe, including siphoning of funds.
