March 06 : The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has finally filed its charge sheet on Friday in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. NCB has not only mentioned Rhea Chakraborty and 32 others in its 11,000-page charge sheet submitted in the drugs case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death but also accused Rhea of the severe charge of illicit trafficking and harbouring of drugs.
The NCB charge sheet read, “Rhea had facilitated her house to Sushant Singh Rajput, her boyfriend, for the consumption of drugs. She has provided funds for the purchase of drugs, thus, she has financed an activity related to illicit drug dealings. Rhea Chakraborty has facilitated a channel of supply of drugs with the help of her brother Showik Chakraborty.” In the charge sheet, NCB alleged that they have evidence, that clearly pointed out that Rhea had conspired to procure drugs, possess, sell and transport, import interstate, export interstate and was dealing with ganja, marijuana and bud.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s death was one of the most controversial cases that Bollywood witnessed in 2020. The drugs related probe was being done by the NCB.
NCB also claimed that a packet of ganja was delivered for Sushant Singh Rajput at Rhea’s residence in Mumbai in 2019. As the parcel was taken and paid for by Rhea, it leads to the fact that she facilitated its consumption by Sushant Singh Rajput. By making payment, she becomes an active member of the drug syndicate, NCB claimed.
The offence with which Rhea is charged comes under the Section 27A of the NDPS Act that leads to a minimum of 10 years of imprisonment and a maximum of 20 years.
Along with Rhea and brother Showik, Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda and cook Dipesh Sawant have also been accused of supplying drugs to the late actor.
Reacting to the charge sheet today, Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde said: “Chargesheet is a damp squib standing on the foundation of inadmissible evidence and statements recorded under section 67 of NDPS Act. The HC has found no prima facie material at the stage of Bail of alleged “Financing Drugs Trade.”
