Sushant Singh Rajput Case LIVE Updates: Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday in connection with a drug-related case pertaining to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, made some serious disclosures in her 20-page statement to the federal agency. According to Rhea’s confessions, made in her statement under Section 67, NDPS Act, a number of Bollywood celebrities at some point allegedly consumed drugs with Sushant Singh Rajput, NCB sources indicated to CNN-News18.
Rhea reportedly claimed that Sushant’s farmhouse in Lonavla was used by his friends in Bollywood to indulge in drug-fueled parties. She, however, denied having been a part of them. She reportedly named two powerful and famous male actors and a few other working actors who gave them these contrabands. Rhea also named a filmmaker who allegedly introduced and took Sushant to parties where cocaine and LSD were consumed with curated Marijuana. She claimed that Sushant had told her about this during the time she was dating him.
Meanwhile, a Mumbai sessions court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Rhea, along with her brother Showik and four others. Their bail applications were rejected by judge G B Gurao of the special court hearing cases filed under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Special Public Prosecutor Atul Sarpande had opposed their bail, saying that Rhea and Showik financed and arranged drugs.
All the six accused – including Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Swant, Abdul Basit and Zaid Vilatra – are likely to move the Bombay High Court for bail, Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde said shortly after the ruling. Until she gets further relief, Rhea, 28 – who was arrested on September 8 and sent to judicial custody till September 22 – will remain in the Byculla Jail. The other accused, Miranda – home manager of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, house help Sawant, and two drug peddlers – are also in judicial custody.
