The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty following the third probe by the authority on Tuesday.
WhatsApp message exchange tracked between Chakraborty and the drug dealer tipped for probable connections of drug procurement for Sushant.
According to reports Chakrabarty accepted that she did facilitate drugs to Sushant at times in one of her hours-long questionnaires with NCB.
Chakrabarty’s arrest comes a few days after her brother Showick Chakraborty and Sushant’s former home manager Miranda was arrested by NCB over similar drug procuring charges.
Sources also confirm Riya broke down after confronted with her already arrested brother.
Rhea Chakraborty’s stint with NCB has made headlines since the first day she stepped out from the NCB office in Mumbai and was heavily mobbed by the present reporters.
The media trial on Rhea made international headlines after and many Bollywood celebrities spoke against Indian media’s ‘vultering‘ against the actor before evidence was out of her crime.
Following NCB arrest, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde said the decision is ‘travesty of justice,’ and the three agencies are “hounding a single woman just because she was in love with a drug addict who was suffering from mental health issues”, as quoted by News agency NDTV.
According to reports, Rhea Chakraborty reportedly filed a case against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister and others for abetment to suicide.
Chakraborty in the complaint accused Sushant’s sister and others of prescribing bogus medicine to Sushant which she claimed had a role to play in the actor’s death.
Rhea’s father earlier said congratulations to India for effectively destroying a middle-class family. After my son, I am sure Rhea will be the next in line for arrest.
“You have effectively demolished a middle-class family. But of course, for the sake of justice, everything is justified. Jai Hind,” Indrajit Chakraborty said in his first-ever statement two days ago.
