The bail granted to actor Rhea Chakraborty in the Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case in October last year by the Bombay High Court has been challenged in the Supreme Court by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). The case will be heard on Thursday.
While granting bail to actor Rhea Chakraborty, the High Court had directed her to deposit her passports with the NCB and not to leave the country without permission of the special NDPS court.
It had asked Jalebi actress to deposit a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and directed her to visit the NCB office at 11 am on the first day of every month for next six months.
Rhea Chakraborty was among the 20 arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with the drugs angle probe into the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. She had spent 28 days in custody.
Earlier this month, the NCB had named 33 people, including Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty, in a chargesheet filed before a special court in Mumbai. The document of nearly 12,000 pages had statements recorded of more than 200 witnesses.
While granting bail to Rhea Chakraborty, the High Court 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”.
