NCB arrests Rhea Chakraborty in drug caserelated to Sushant Singh Rajput's death

The Actress Rhea Chakraborty has been arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a drug case related to Sushant Singh Rajput's death probe. This was confirmed according to the report provided by KPS Malhotra, Deputy Director, Narcotics Control Bureau Mumbai.

According to the report, after few minutes Rhea Chakraborty has been arrested by the NCB on Tuesday (September 8, 2020), her legal team headed by senior advocate Satish Manshinde slammed central agencies for "hounding" a lone woman "just because she was in love with a drug addict".

The NCB also had arrested Rhea's brother, Showik, earlier and a house-help of Rajput.

Rhea had been arrested after a tough three-days of grilling to unravel the drugs nexus in the film industry, according to the official sources.

The Advocate of the actress Adv. Manshinde said that the Bandra FIR has been transferred to CBI as per the order of the Supreme Court.

He said that CBI will investigate if the doctor is criminally culpable or otherwise.

She has been charged under various sections of the NDPS Act for her alleged role in drug abuse.

She has been taken for a medical test and is likely to be produced before a magistrate through videoconferencing.

The NCB had interrogated Rhea for six hours on Sunday (September 6, 2020), later on, Monday (September 7, 2020) for eight hours, and again for around five hours on Tuesday (September 8, 2020) before placing her under arrest.
