Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Show Chakraborty, and other individuals are said to have been the subject of draught charges submitted by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday. The accusations were made in a narcotics lawsuit connected to the actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s passing in June 2020.
According to Atul Sarpande, a special public prosecutor, who spoke to PTI, the prosecution is continuing to pursue each and every count listed against each and every accused person in the charge sheet that was submitted to the court. Among the accusations made against the accused by the NCB on behalf of the unversed were those made under Section 8(c) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in conjunction with Sections 20(b)(ii)(A), 22, 27, 27A, 28, 29, and 30.
In addition, the prosecution requested that Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik be charged with drug use as well as procuring and paying for drugs on behalf of SSR.
According to public prosecutor Sarpande, the court was planning to file these charges against each and every defendant. He claimed that it was impossible since some of the accused had filed for discharge.
The court insisted that the charges wouldn’t be brought until the accused’s discharge pleas were resolved.
On Wednesday, Rhea, Showik, and all the other defendants appeared in court. The case was set for hearing on July 12 by special judge V.G. Raghuwanshi.
During the investigation, Rhea Chakraborty was detained in September 2020. She received bail from the Bombay High Court about a month later. Apart from her, a number of other defendants who were allegedly involved in the consumption, possession, and funding of drugs have also been released on bond.
The Narcotics Control Bureau has been looking into the alleged drug use in the film business ever since Sushant Singh Rajput passed away.
