Rhea Chakraborty will soon be taken for a medical test by the agency. Rhea’s brother Showik had also been arrested by the NCB on September 4 along with Samuel Miranda. After Showik’s arrest, Rhea’s father stated, “Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I’m sure next on the line is my daughter and I don’t know who is next thereafter.”
The ED found the evidence of consumption and procurement of drugs from Rhea’s WhatsApp chats after which the NCB filed a case against Rhea and her brother Showik. Rhea in her statement to the CBI admitted that she used to procure drugs and said that she might have smoked a joint and was forced by Sushant to take drugs.
