On October 7, Rhea Chakraborty was granted bail by Bombay High Court in the drug nexus case, linked to Sushant Singh Rajput. On the same day, her brother Showik Chakraborty’s bail plea was rejected by Bombay HC. Now a month after, Showik filed fresh bail plea in the Special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Court. Showik’s name popped up in the drug case when his WhatsApp chats with drug dealers surfaced online.
ANI Tweeted, “Showik Chakraborty, brother of Rhea Chakraborty files fresh bail application in Special NDPS Court. #Mumbai.” As per Hindustan Times, the bail application read, “In the facts and circumstances of the present case, given that no commercial quantity has been alleged in respect of the applicant, there has been no recovery from the applicant and that all allegations pertain only to small quantities, the embargo imposed by Section 37 of the NDPS Act, 1985 would not be applicable.”
“Apart from allegedly procuring the drugs for the late actor, there are no allegations against the applicant of being involved in any other form of illicit traffic or even of purchasing drugs for any other person. Hence, terming the applicant as being part of a “drug syndicate” or having financed the “illicit traffic” of drugs is wholly farfetched and without application of mind”, read the bail application further.

“There is electronic evidence to show that the applicant’s sister was in fact trying her level best to rid the late actor of his drug habit by consistently restricting the quantity of drugs he had access to. The applicant’s sister also discussed her concerns regarding the late actor combining his drug habit with prescription medication with his doctor namely Kersi Chavda. However, the late actor being an adult and having his own mind was the ultimate decision,” it added.
