Last month, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by India’s Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) as part of their investigation into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.



The NCB said the actress “consumed” drugs with Sushant and also supplied it to the actor. Along with Rhea, her brother, Showik Chakraborty was also arrested.

A few days ago, Rhea and Showik filed a bail plea in the Bombay High Court and today, the court granted bail to Rhea, although her brother’s plea was rejected.

The news agency, ANI tweeted, “Maharashtra: Bombay High Court grants bail to Rhea Chakraborty, rejects bail plea of her brother Showik Chakraborty. Narcotics Control Bureau had arrested them in connection with a drugs case related to #SushantSinghRajput death.”



In another tweeted, ANI wrote, “Rhea Chakraborty gets bail on personal bond of Rs 1 lakh (Rs 100,000/ £1,058). Court says, “Rhea should mark her presence for 10 days in police station after release, deposit her passport, not travel abroad without court permission & inform investigating officer if she has to leave Greater Mumbai.”

Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant, who were also arrested by the NCB, have been granted bail.

Sushant passed away on 14th June 2020. It was said the actor died by suicide, however, after a few days, the actor’s family filed a case against Rhea accusing her of “stealing” Sushant’s money and “instigating him to die by suicide”.

The actress denies any wrongdoing.

Some reports claimed that Sushant was “murdered”. However, a couple of days ago, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) submitted their report to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in which they have stated it was not murder, and the actor died by suicide.
