Rhea Chakraborty Arrest: She use to bring marijuana for Sushant says NCB
On Tuesday the Narcotics Control Bureau arrested Actor Rhea Chakraborty after three days of questioning, on charges of allegedly arranging and financing consumption of marijuana by her boyfriend, Sushant Singh Rajput, with the help of her brother, Showik, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda and cook Dipesh Sawant.
In its remand application, the NCB described Rhea as part of an “active drug syndicate” connected with drug suppliers. The agency, however, did not ask for her custody and instead requested that she be sent to judicial custody. A magistrate remanded her in judicial custody till September 22.
Rhea has been booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Pyschotropic Substances Act under section 8(c) which deals with possession and purchase, 20B (II) for possession, purchase and transporting, 27 for financing illicit traffic, 28 for attempt to commit offences, and 29 for abetment and criminal conspiracy.
The application adds: “These deliveries of marijuana used to be received by aides of Sushant and every delivery and payment was in conscious knowledge of Rhea Chakraborty and even sometimes payment and choice of drugs was confirmed from Rhea.” Rhea is the tenth person to be arrested in the NCB’s probe into drug use involving Rajput.
Immediately after her arrest, NCB officials took her to Sion hospital for medical examination.
