Rhea Chakraborty and brother Showik’s bail plea was heard today in court with her lawyer fighting her case and the NCB opposing the plea. The drugs agency said that Chakraborty is an “active member” of the accused.
“It is clear from the statements and electronic evidence gathered by the NCB that the applicant is an active member of the drug syndicate connected with high society personalities and drug suppliers. There is sufficient evidence that she is involved in drug trafficking,” said the drugs agency, according to NDTV.
Satish Maneshinde, Chakraborty’s lawyer, countered the argument with, “How can Rhea ‘harbour’ Sushant when he was in his own house? At any point of time, Sushant was under no apprehension of arrest. There is no question of ‘harbouring'”.
Chakraborty has been in custody since 9th September after being arrested for drug peddling for Sushant Singh Rajput.
