Actor Rhea Chakraborty & her brother Showik Chakraborty are 2 among the accused in this case.
The Narcotics Control Bureau, which has been probing the drug angle related to the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, will file its chargesheet in Special NDPS court on Friday, news agency ANI reported. Actor Rhea Chakraborty along with her brother Showik are two among the accused in this case. The actor was found dead on June 14 at his residence in Mumbai.
The NCB had registered a case in August last year, linked with Sushant Singh Rajput's death after the Enforcement Directorate disclosed alleged chats that happened between Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik and Sushant Singh's former manager & staff. Since August, the agency has conducted several raids and arrested more than 30 people connected with this case.
Rhea, Showik, Sushant Singh Rajput's staff members named Miranda & Deepesh Sawant were booked for allegedly procuring drugs for the deceased actor. Several entertainment personalities like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet, Shraddha Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and more were interrogated during this probe.
The NCB is said to have been in the process of assembling evidence running into more than 70,000 pages including statements, call records, WhatsApp chats of the accused persons. While the NCB had recorded statements of more than 20 accused, leading to more arrests in the case, to establish an alleged link between them to prove that they were part of the illegal drug trafficking, a Supreme Court judgment in October last year said that these can’t be the sole basis for convicting any accused.
The court had ruled that such statements recorded before NCB officials can’t be considered as confessional statements & will not be admissible as evidence. However, the NCB said there is other substantial evidence against the accused.
