In Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case, Rhea Chakraborty is the prime accused and she was arrested yesterday by the Narcotics Control Bureau for procuring and consuming drugs. On Tuesday evening, after her medical test was done, she was sent to 14-days judicial custody by the court.
Rhea Chakraborty filed a bail plea before she was produced before the court, but the court rejected her plea. Now, according to the media reports, Rhea has moved the special NDPS court to seek bail on Wednesday. Rhea along with her brother Showik Chakraborty and the late actor’s house manager Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant was arrested by the NCB for procuring and consuming drugs.
As per the reports, Showik’s bail plea will be also be heard on Thursday. Rhea’s lawyer has submitted a fresh bail plea before special judge GB Gurao and has said that the offenses against Rhea are bailable and also that Rhea was interrogated only by male officers and no woman officer was present in the room, which contravened the law.
Rhea’s plea filed by her lawyer stated, ” During her custody, Rhea was coerced into making self-incriminating confessions. Through an application made on Tuesday, Rhea has formally retracted all such incriminating confessions.” The plea also mentioned that with the circumstances surrounding her, she feared for her life in jail.
The plea further stated that there is nothing on record to prove that Rhea was in any way connected with the drugs. It also refused that she was involved in financing, illicit trafficking, or harboring of offenders about any narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances.
Rhea’s lawyer also mentioned that the others who were arrested in the same offense have been granted bail but Rhea has been refused for the same.
