Rhea Chakraborty was arrested last Tuesday by NCB. The charges on her were that she organized drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput. The drugs probe agency characterized her as an “active member of a drugs syndicate”. Later bail was denied to her. A court in Mumbai said that if she was released, she would alert “other persons” she named. Those people could destroy their evidence. The investigation of those people are in process. If the accused is released on bail then she might tamper the evidence. So, the judge said that Rhea Chakraborty is not entitled for bail.
The court pointed to her statement during her three-day questioning. During the statement Rhea Chakraborty let out about her involvement in acquisition of drug and financial transactions. Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Sawant and Showik Chakraborty are accused in this regard.
All accused were active in drug partnerships connected with drug supplies. They used to give drugs to the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput for consumption purposes.
Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde denied this fact that nothing was seized from her. He further said that the Allegations involved “a small quantity of Ganja” which leads to a year’s jail and is bailable.
The court disagreed and said that ““However, according to the prosecution, the accused is involved in illicit trafficking of drugs. She has financed drugs for late Sushant Singh Rajput and therefore, she has committed an offence punishable under section 27-A of the NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Act. The offence is non-bailable.
According to section 27-A of the NDPS Act, whoever is involved in buying drugs, directly or indirectly, would face imprisonment for 10-20 years. Also there will be a fine of upto ₹2 lakh.
The court also denied Rhea’s statement that she was forced into saying her statement. As Rhea and Sushant were in a relationhip, she procured drugs for Sushant. For this the accused asked her brother Showik to arrange for the drugs. The accused Zaid Vilatra and Adel Basit arranged the drugs .
NCB has reovered whatsapp chats and other electronic devices. Some amount is also transferred via credit card of the accused. The investigation is at the preliminary stage. Therefore it cannot be said that there are no reasonable grounds to connect the accused.
