Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested the actor in a drugs case related to the death of her boyfriend, actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The NCB had previously arrested Chakraborty’s brother Showik and Rajput’s former housekeeper Samuel Miranda. Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has called her arrest a “travesty of justice.”
Mutha Ashok Jain, Deputy DG, South-Western Region, NCB told media that RheaChakraborty will be produced before magistrate shortly. We don’t need her custody remand so we’ll seek judicial custody. We aren’t asking for her custody remand as whatever we wanted to cross with her, we’ve done already.
Mutha Ashok Jain said, “We will oppose bail to her. We are only seeking judicial custody but we don’t support the bail.”
He said, “Rhea was sent for a routine medical check-up. She tested negative for COVID-19. Whatever she told was sufficient for the arrest. We have arrested her, it means we had enough.”
