Regarding the verdict, Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde said, "Once we get a copy of the NDPS Special Court Order, we will decide next week on the course of action about approaching the high court".

The Bail Plea

On 9 September, Rhea had filed for a bail application before the Sessions Court in Mumbai stating that she is being framed in the case. As per a report by Live Law, it has also been stated in Rhea's application that during her questioning on 6, 7 and 8 September by the NCB, she was coerced into making certain confessions. Moreover, the application adds, Rhea was only interrogated by multiple male officers and there wasn't a single lady officer who questioned her.
