Rhea Chakraborty Judicial custody once again has been extended by the Mumbai NDPS court. The actress was arrested by NCB on September 9 for alleged procurement and consumption of illegal drugs. Along with her, the judicial custody of her brother Showik, house manager Samuel Miranda and others have also been extended. Her custody has been extended after every 14 days, and this was about to end today. But it has been extended till October 20. Rhea Chakraborty and others are lodged in Mumbai’s Byculla Jail.
The court hearing was done today where NCB strongly opposed to Rhea Chakraborty and other’s bail plea stating that they can tamper with evidence, they also emphasized giving a strong single to youngsters and ensuring that they wouldn’t involve in drug consumption anyhow. The NCB said that Rhea and others who have been arrested are active members of the drug syndicate, and to expose the root of the syndicate, they should not be given bail.
