The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had arrested actress Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty in a drugs case related to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The Bombay High Court on Wednesday granted bail to actress Rhea Chakraborty, but rejected for her brother Showik Chakraborty’s bail plea.
Rhea got bail on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh. The court said, “Rhea should mark her presence for 10 days in the police station after release, deposit her passport, not travel abroad without court permission and inform the investigating officer if she has to leave Greater Mumbai.”
After the special court had earlier also rejected the bail pleas of the brother-sister duo. They then moved the Bombay High Court to seek bail. The HC has reserved its order on their pleas.
The NCB had launched an investigation after it received official communication from Enforcement Directorate (ED), in which there were various chats related to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
