NCB challenges Rhea Chakraborty’s bail in Supreme Court on March 18th

Rhea Chakraborty’s bail plea has been now challenged by the NCB in the Superme Court in March 18th.

Rhea Chakraborty spent 2 months in judicial custody until bail was granted to her in October last year. Her bail has now been challenged by the NCB in Supreme Court and the case will be heard on the 18th of March. 

Earlier, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested for drug related chargers in the death of her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput. She was granted bail on the condition that she submit Rs 1 lakh bond and not leave the country without the permission of the court.

This month, the NCB filed a 12,000 page chargesheet before a special court in Mumbai. In the chargesheet, Rhea has been accused of harbouring drugs as well as permitting Sushant Singh Rajput to consume drugs at her place.

This offence comes under the Section 27A of the NDPS Act that leads to a minimum of 10 years of imprisonment with the maximum number of years being 20. Rhea Chakraborty, as per the charge sheet has been accused of possessing drugs like bud, marijuana, and ganja. Along with the Chakraborty siblings, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda and cook Dipesh Sawant have been accused of supplying drugs to Sushant Singh Rajput.

On the other hand, Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde called the chargesheet, ‘a damp squib.’

The High Court while granting bail to Rhea had said that she is “not part of a chain of drug dealers” and has “not forwarded the drugs allegedly procured by her to somebody else to earn monetary and other benefits.”
