Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by NCB on September 8. Soon after her arrest, her lawyer Satish Maneshinde filed a bail plea in a special NDPS court. The court hearing was yesterday, and after the hearing, the court has rejected the Rhea and her brother, Showik, bail plea. Their cases are being investigated by NCB for possible drug consumption, procurement, finance, and possible connection of all these to Sushant’s death. Sushant Singh Rajput’s manager, Samuel’s, Cook Dipesh Sawant, and drug peddler Basit Parihar and Zaid Vilatra’s bail plea have also been rejected by the court.

Rhea’s lawyer Maneshinde said, “Once we get a copy of the court order, we will decide next week on the course of action about approaching the High Court,” However, he got a strong opposition from NCB who claimed that she was involved in the illicit trafficking of drugs as she accepted that. NCB stated that her WhatsApp chat, phone records, other’s statement, and information collected from her electronic gadgets so far are its proof.
Public prosecutor Atul Sarpande said before the court, “The applicant (Rhea) was having conscious knowledge about drug consumption by Sushant Singh Rajput and she made herself part of this offense by procuring drugs. She has used her credit card and payment getaways to facilitate the financial transactions related to dealing with illicit drug trafficking,”
