Rhea Chakraborty has been sent to 14-day judicial custody after being arrested by NCB. Meanwhile, CBI is probing a possible link between Disha & Sushant’s death.

Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrests Rhea Chakraborty today under various sections of NDPS. She has been taken for a medical test and will be produced before a magistrate via video conferencing by 7.30 pm today.

Rhea, 28, had earlier denied consuming drugs. Her brother Showik Chakraborty was arrested last week in the case. The NCB is likely to file a plea before the court seeking that they need to keep all four in police remand for further questioning.

Possibly she will be confronted with others in days to come and will be taken to places for recovery if any. Reportedly, to break cartel her custodial interrogation is needed.

From three consecutive days, actress Rhea Chakraborty has been appearing before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with the ongoing probe into a possible drugs connection in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.

On 3rd of questioning, Chakraborty reached the NCB office, located at Ballard Estate in south Mumbai, around 10.30 am in a car escorted by a Mumbai Police vehicle. She is still under interrogation.

The NCB had interrogated Rhea for six hours on Sunday, later on Monday for eight hours and again for around five hours on Tuesday before placing her under arrest.

Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti was among the first ones to react to the news on Twitter. She wrote, “God is with us”.

Accordingly, as per sources, the NCB has prepared a list of 25 personalities from the film industry who were involved in this cartel, and this has been segregated into A, B, and C categories. The summons is likely to be issued to them within a week. Apart from arresting Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty, the NCB has so far arrested, Abbas Lakhani, Karan Arora, Abdel Basit Parihar, Samuel Miranda, Showik Chakraborty, Dipesh Sawant, Kaizan Ebrahim, Zaid Vilatra and Anuj Keshwani.

Rhea slapped with 5 NDPS Sections

The NCB has arrested the Bollywood actor under sections 8(c), 20(b), 27(a), 28 and 29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS).

As per sources, on Day 3 of her interrogation by the NCB, Rhea Chakraborty admitted that she was consuming not just marijuana, but also hard drugs. 

As per top sources, the actor had earlier admitted ‘procuring drugs’ along with her brother Showik, who has also been arrested by NCB. In her latest statement to the NCB, Rhea stated that she was consuming ‘chemicals’ or hard drugs, apart from marijuana, as per sources.
