There were reports making rounds recently that Rhea had given names to the NCB who consumes the drug.
According to the reports, Rhea had named 25 Bollywood A-listers, and amongst those 25 names, Rhea has taken Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, designer Simone Khambatta, Mukesh Chhabra, and Sushant’s former manager Rohini Iyer’s names. It was also being said that the NCB will soon be summoning these Bollywood actors.
However, Pinkvilla in its report has revealed that NCB deputy director KPS Malhotra has denied preparing any such list of Bollywood celebrities. He was asked by if any prominent Bollywood names are involved, he said, “We have not prepared any Bollywood list. The list earlier prepared was of peddlers and traffickers. It’s getting confused with Bollywood.” The NCB officer further added that the names have not been zeroed upon.
Before getting arrested by the agency, the actress had filed a bail plea which was later rejected by the court, and later Rhea was sent to the judicial custody for 14-days. Currently, Rhea is in Byculla Jail.
