High Court Grants Bail to Rhea Chakraborty in Drug Case


Rhea Chakraborty Gets Bail: A month after actor Rhea Chakraborty was arrested, the Bombay high court on Wednesday granted her bail in a drug abuse case linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Rhea was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on September 8 for her alleged involvement in procuring marijuana for Rajput, also her boyfriend.

The HC refused bail to one more co-accused and alleged peddler, Abdel Basit Parihar, 23, while granting it to Samuel Miranda, house manager of the late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Dipesh Samant, Rajput’s personal staff.

Rhea’s brother Showik will, however, continue to remain behind bars after his bail plea was rejected. The court also refused to grant bail to Abdel Basit Parihar, a final year student of architecture, who is accused of supplying narcotics to Sushant Singh Rajput, allegedly through Showik.

The HC permitted Rhea to furnish a cash bail of Rs 1 lakh within a month and to furnish sureties within that time. She has to regularly report to the nearest police station and has to surrender her passport. Justice Kotwal said he has imposed sufficiently stringent conditions on bail.

Significantly, Justice Kotwal held that all offences under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) are non-bailable offences.
