Mumbai: Rhea Chakraborty has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court after close to a month-long stay in jail following being arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for alleged involvement in a drug cartel, in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case drug nexus probe. Sushant Singh Rajput’s staff Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant have also received bail. The high court, however, rejected the bail applications of her brother Showik Chakraborty and alleged drug peddler Abdul Parihar.
Rhea has been asked to inform the investigating officer if she plans to leave Greater Mumbai. The High Court ordered Rhea to mark her presence for ten days in the nearest police station after release. She should deposit her passport and should not travel outside the country without the prior permission of the court, and pay a surety of Rs 1 lakh.
“We are Delighted by the Order of the Honourable Bombay High Court granting bail to Rhea Chakraborty. Truth and Justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Sarang V Kotwal. The arrest and custody of Rhea were totally unwarranted and beyond the reach of law. The hounding and witch hunt by three central agencies the CBI, ED, and NCB of Rhea should come to an end. We remain committed to Truth. Satyamev Jayate ” said Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde after three different courts had declined to release Rhea, and Showik still languishing.
