Rhea Chakraborty is granted bail by the Bombay High Court today. She was arrested by the NCB for alleged procurement of drugs for her boyfriend, Sushant Singh Rajput. However, Rhea’s brother Showik is still in the custody and his plea has been rejected by the court.
Rhea’s lawyer, Satish Maneshinde said, “She will be released today and spend her night after a month in her bed,”
The order of the court that granted Rhea bail said, “Rhea is not part of a chain of drug dealers” and “has not forwarded the drugs allegedly procured by her to somebody else to earn money other benefits. Since she has no criminal antecedents, there are reasonable grounds for believing that she is not likely to commit any offense while on bail,”
Rhea lawyer expressed his gratitude and said, “We are delighted by the order. Truth and Justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Sarang V Kotwal,”
However, the court has asked Rhea to submit Rupees 1 Lac as a bond and have also told her to visit the police station every day to mark her presence. They further ordered that her passports shall be handed over to the authorities and that she cannot travel abroad without the court’s permission.
Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, said “The arrest and custody of Rhea were totally unwarranted and beyond the reach of the law. The hounding and witch-hunt by three central agencies, the CBI, Enforcement Directorate, and the Narcotics Control Bureau should come to an end. We remain committed to truth. Satyameva Jayate,”
The actress was arrested on September 8 by The Narcotics Control Bureau on charges of buying drugs for her former lover and famous filmstar Sushant Singh Rajput. The Kedarnath actor was found dead in his apartment in Bandra on June 14.
After 28 days, Rhea has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
