Today Mumbai court denied the bail for Rhea Chakraborty, arrested over drug charges linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput case, and the bail requests of Showik Chakraborty brother and eight other accused were also rejected.
Rhea Chakraborty will stay in Byculla jail in judicial custody till September 22, and Rhea’s lawyer will now approach the Bombay High Court for bail.
According to the Bail request, Rhea said, “she had not committed any crime whatsoever and had been falsely implicated in the case also claimed rape and death threats and a severe toll on her mental health and well-being” because of multiple investigations.”
Narcotics Control Bureau argued that if Rhea is released on bail, she may tamper with the evidence and try to win over witnesses using her position in the society and money power.
The NCB said, “Rhea Chakraborty had conscious knowledge of drugs use by her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, and she had made herself part of this offense by procuring drugs for him.”
“Rhea Chakraborty used her credit card and payment gateways to facilitate financial transactions related to dealing of illicit drug trafficking also insisted her confession was voluntary not coerced, and admissible in the court of law,” NCB said.
The drugs financed by actress Rhea Chakraborty were not meant for her Personal consumption, but for supplying them to another person. Hence, as per Section 27A of NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act) is applicable, and she cannot escape the clutches of law, NCB argued.
On Monday, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on buying drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput, a rising movie star whose death on June 14. Various agencies, including the CBI, are investigating the case.
