Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend, actress Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on Monday on charges of buying drugs for her boyfriend and the bail request of the Jalebi star and her brother Showik were denied by a Mumbai court today. Bail requests of 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 plea, the actress had stated that she was “coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions” and that she had not committed any crime.
However, the Narcotics Control Bureau argued that she may tamper with the evidence if released on bail and may try to win over witnesses. They officials claimed that Rhea knew about drug use by her boyfriend and she used to procure them using her credit card. They also insisted that her confession was “voluntary.”
