The crime report of Narcotics Control Bureau says that Rhea Chakraborty was involved in the usage of drugs. The agency, who analysed Rhea’s WhatsApp chats, in its report said that the actress bought and sold drugs. Rhea Chakraborty’s home was raided by the NCB officials on Friday. After the raid, the NCB questioned Rhea’s brother, Showik Chakraborty, and Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager, Samuel Miranda, for more than nine hours. They were later arrested by the NCB on Friday night.
The crime report of NCB on Rhea Chakrobarty read, “Analysis of WhatsApp chats of Rhea Chakravarty with other entities reflects the angle of conspiracy and abetment in possession, sale, purchase, consumption, transportation and usage of substances covered under NDPS Act. Prima facie offences u/s /20(b)/22/27/28/29 of NDPS Act are made out.”
According to sources, Rhea Chakraborty is likely to be summoned for questioning by the NCB on Sunday. It is speculated that she can also be arrested after the questioning.
After their arrest on Friday, Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda are being presented at Magistrate court in Mumbai. The NCB will seek 4 to 6 days custody of the two from the court. Sources revealed that no drug test of Showik and Miranda conducted as of now.
During the NCB questioning on Friday, Showik Chakraborty confessed that he used to buy drugs at Rhea’s behest. The NCB sources claim that he was a facilitator not only for Sushant Singh Rajput, but also arranged narcotics for some other Bollywood stars.
Sushant Singh Rajput death case is currently being investigated by the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Control Bureau. While the CBI is probing the circumstances in which Sushant died and if there’s any murder angle to it, the ED is investigating money-laundering angle. The NCB is probing a drug angle in the case.
The drug angle in the case came to light after Rhea Chakraborty’s WhatsApp chats with Jaya Saha, Shruti Modi, Gaurav Arya and Samuel Miranda, where they are seen discussing drugs, were released by the ED.
