Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case: Rhea Chakraborty's Bail Challenged In Supreme Court By NCB – Reports
In 2020, actor Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with the drugs angle, linked to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. After spending 28 days in custody, she was granted bail by the Bombay High court. However, now the latest report is that the bail granted to his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty in October last year by the Bombay High Court has been challenged in the Supreme Court by NCB. According to the report in IANS, the case will be heard on Thursday, March 18 with a bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde and comprising Justices A.S. Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian.

Reportedly, she was asked to submit an Rs. 1 lakh bond and told not to leave the country without the court's permission. Apart from this, the NCB has also filed the charge sheet in a Special NDPS Court, and that Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and others had been named. Reacting to the same, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde had earlier said that the 12000-page charge sheet was expected.  Satish Maneshinde said that this case has no ‘substance’ if Rhea Chakraborty isn’t ‘charged’. 

He said to ANI, “All efforts of NCB have been directed towards Rhea Chakraborty to somehow rope her in. The entire amount of 'narcotic substances recovered' against 33 Accused are nothing compared to what even a constable in Mumbai Police or Narcotics Cell or the Airport Customs or other agencies recover from one raid or trap. The entire NCB from top to bottom was engaged in unearthing drug angle in Bollywood.”
