New Delhi: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has now moved to Supreme Court to challenge the bail that has been granted to actress Rhea Chakraborty by the Bombay High Court.
The Supreme Court will hear the case on March 18. Rhea Chakraborty was granted bail last year in October.
Rhea Chakraborty was granted bail with conditions nearly a month after her arrest over drugs-related charges in the death of her actor boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput last year. She was asked to submit a ₹ 1 lakh bond and told not leave the country without the court’s permission.
Earlier this month, NCB has named Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, in a chargesheet filed before a special court in Mumbai along with 33 individuals named. The document of nearly 12,000 pages had statements recorded of more than 200 witnesses. She is accused of being “an active member of a drugs syndicate” and financing narcotics used by Sushant Singh Rajput.
