Rhea Chakraborty was grilled by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for six hours on September 6 in connection to the drug conspiracy that emerged in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. The actress was summoned by the officials even today.
Earlier, Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda and house help Dipesh Sawant were arrested by NCB. And now if the latest reports are anything to go by then, Rhea is likely to be arrested by NCB today. Read on to know the details.
According to a report in India Today, Rhea has apparently admitted that she knew about Miranda buying drugs from Zaid Vilatra, a Bandra-based peddler who was nabbed by NCB, on March 17. So as per her alleged confession, Rhea was aware of the dealings and her along with brother Showik was even coordinating with Zaid. And that might lead to her arrest today if NCB establishes her role in the drug peddling angle.
However, Rhea may have admitted to procuring drugs but she has maintained her stand of not consuming drugs ever.
Today, reportedly the actress will be questioned by NCB in the presence of arrested accused- Showik, Miranda, Dipesh Sawant and Zaid.
Yesterday, as Rhea went for NCB questioning, her lawyer Satish Maneshinde issued a statement that read, “Rhea is ready for arrest as this is a witch hunt and if loving someone is a crime, she will face the consequences of her love. Being innocent, she has not approached any court for an anticipatory bail in all the cases foisted by Bihar police now with CBI, ED and NCB.”
Meanwhile, Sushant’s sister Meetu Singh is being interrogated by CBI.
