The Narcotics Control Bureau has been investigating the drugs link in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. After arresting Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik and Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda on Friday, Rhea Chakraborty was also arrested by the NCB on Tuesday for allegedly arranging and financing the consumption of marijuana by her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput. Rhea and Showik’s bail plea will be heard on Thursday, that is today, in Special Court, Mumbai. Now, according to reports, Rhea Chakraborty has retracted her statement to the NCB saying that she was ‘coerced’ into making self-incriminating confessions.
According to Times Of India, Rhea has said in her plea that while she was in custody, she was coerced into making confessions that she is now formally retracting. TOI reports that on Wednesday, Rhea moved the special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court seeking bail and retracted her statement to the NCB. Rhea’s plea also reportedly said, “The NCB has used these basic facts to spin a false narrative that portrays Rhea as being someone who finances the illicit traffic or harbouring of offenders. There is no allegation of Rhea having procured or financed any drug whatsoever outside of the period during which she was in a relationship with Rajput.”
After being arrested on Tuesday, Rhea spent a night at the NCB headquarters, after which she was reportedly sent to Byculla Women’s prison, Wednesday morning.
According to a report in Republic, Rhea Chakraborty who was sent to the general barracks, had to be shifted to a separate cell room in Byculla Jail due to security issues. ALSO READ: Sushant Singh Rajput Death: Rhea Chakraborty’s Brother Showik Chakraborty And Others Shifted To Taloja Jail-Reports
