After brother Showik Chakraborty, Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty were apprehended by the Narcotics Control Bureau in the drug-angle investigation linked to the Sushant’s death case. Today, on 10 September’20 ,bail plea hearing at Special Court, Mumbai is underway. After being arrested, Rhea was sent to 14 days of judicial custody. Rhea’s lawyer then applied for bail which was then repudiated by the court. Now as per latest updates, Rhea and Showik’s bail hearing is scheduled for today, but, NCB will oppose their bail plea.
As per a report in Republic TV, a source close to the development disclosed that NCB will oppose the bail application of Rhea Chakraborty and the other accused. However, the final argument will be presented today. Apart from Rhea and Showik, Zaid Vilatra, Abdel Basit Parihar, Samuel Mirinda, Dipesh Sawant, and Showik were granted 14 days Judicial Custody till 23 September’20 by the Court.
Today morning, Rhea in her bail plea revealed that she was forced into making confessions. Earlier, TOI report suggested Rhea moved the special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court seeking bail and retracted her statement to the NCB.
Rhea’s plea stated,“The NCB has used these basic facts to spin a false narrative that portrays Rhea as being someone who finances the illicit traffic or harbouring of offenders. There is no allegation of Rhea having procured or financed any drug whatsoever outside of the period during which she was in a relationship with Rajput.”
