i

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has filed draft charges against actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, and others before a special court in Mumbai in connection with the drugs investigation linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.

Earlier, the NCB had, in its chargesheet, accused Rhea and Showik of providing drugs to Sushant. Rhea was charged with sections under the NDPS Act for allegedly buying drugs in a commercial quantity and encouraging others to consume drugs.

She spent almost a month in jail in the case and was granted bail on 7 October 2020. During their investigation, the NCB didn't find any drugs in Rhea's possession.

In May 2022, advocate Satish Maneshinde, who represents Rhea, sought a fresh probe into the three cases registered against Rhea by the NCB. Maneshinde had represented Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan in the cruise ship drug case.
