Actor Rhea Chakraborty, arrested over drugs charges linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput case, was denied bail today by a Mumbai court. The bail requests of her brother Showik Chakraborty and eight other accused were also rejected.
Rhea Chakraborty will stay in Byculla jail, where she was taken after a magistrate sent her to judicial custody till September 22. Her lawyer will now approach the Bombay High Court for bail.
In her bail request, Rhea Chakraborty had retracted her confession and said she was “coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions”. She said she had “not committed any crime whatsoever and had been falsely implicated in the case”. She had also claimed rape and death threats and “a severe toll on her mental health and well-being” because of multiple investigations.
But the Narcotics Control Bureau argued that if released on bail, the actor “may tamper with the evidence and also try to win over witnesses using her position in the society and money power”.
Rhea Chakraborty had conscious knowledge of drugs use by her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, said the agency, and had “made herself part of this offence by procuring drugs” for him.
