In relation with a drug case connected to the murder of B-town entertainer Sushant Singh Rajput, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday issued draught allegations against actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, like many before a special court. Atul Sarpande, a special public prosecutor, stated that the prosecution continued to bring charges against each and every defendant as set forth in the charge sheet presented in court. The prosecution has asked the court to indict Rhea and Showik for using drugs, as well as for obtaining and paying for drugs for the late actor Rajput.
According to Sarpande, the court was going to file proceedings against each defendant. However, it was impossible since several of the accused filed for discharge.
According to what the court has stated, the charges won’t be filed until the release pleas have been resolved, he added. Rhea and Showing were among the defendants who appeared before the court on Wednesday.
The case was posted for hearing on July 12 by special judge V G Raghuwanshi, who hears matters under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.
In the incident, Chakraborty was detained in September 2020. Nearly a month after her arrest, the Bombay High Court granted her release.
Rhea, her sibling Showik Chakraborty, and a number of other people are also charged with drug usage, possession, and funding in the case. The majority of them are on release.
Following the demise of entertainer Sushant Singh Rajput, aged 34, who was discovered hanging in his flat in the district of Bandra on June 14, 2020, the central authority has been looking into the suspected drug usage in the B-town and tv industries. The CBI is looking into the circumstances surrounding his death.
Rhea recently posted flashback pictures and a homage to Sushant on Instagram on the occasion of his second death anniversary. She penned, “Miss you every day.” In the first image, Sushant grinned as Rhea pouted, and in the following image, Rhea grinned at Sushant as he sat on the lawn. Rhea kissed Sushant on the cheek in a different image. The final image featured Sushant enjoying the rain with Rhea in his arms.
