Rhea Chakraborty's Bail Plea Hearing Postponed; Confirms Actress' Lawyer

In Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, Rhea Chakraborty along with her brother Showik Chakraborty and Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda were arrested in the first week of September by the Narcotics Control Bureau. The NCB had earlier filed a complaint against Rhea and her brother Showik after the Enforcement Directorate shared the evidence of drugs from Rhea Chakraborty’s WhatsApp chats.

The agency also arrested other drug peddlers after interrogating the arrested ones. Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on September 8 and was sent to the judicial custody of the NCB by the court. However, before being produced before the court via video conferencing, the actress had filed a bail plea but that was rejected by the court, and the actress was sent to judicial custody till September 22.

In the meanwhile, Rhea and her brother had filed a bail plea in the special court as well but the court rejected that plea too. Yesterday, on September 22, Rhea’s judicial custody was supposed to end along with other’s custody but the NCB requested for extending their custody.

The court extended Rhea Chakraborty along with her brother Showik, Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda and other’s judicial custody yesterday till October 6. As per reports, Rhea and her brother Showik had filed for a bail plea in Bombay High Court which had its hearing today i.e 23rd September 2020 but due to heavy rains in Mumbai, Cheif Justice has declared the holiday today for the court.

Rhea’s lawyer stated the same, stating, “Chief Justice has declared a holiday today for Bombay High Court and today’s board will be taken up tomorrow i.e 24th Sept.”

As per the statement, now the hearing of Rhea and Showik’s bail plea will be heard tomorrow and the court will either reject their bail plea or accept it.
