Actor Rhea Chakraborty was brought to Byculla jail by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials on Wednesday morning.
She was arrested by the agency on Tuesday in connection with the investigation of a drug angle in actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. The arrest was made under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. Her bail plea was rejected by the court on the same day.
‘No father can bear injustice on his daughter. I should die,’ her father expressed his disappointment on Twitter after the rejection of her plea.
Rhea’s Chakraborty’s arrest came 3 days after the arrest of her brother Showik and Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda.
The actor was summoned to the NCB office for questioning for three consecutive days before her arrest. “Rhea is an active member of a drug syndicate and used to manage finance for drug procurement along with the late actor,” the NCB had said in its remand application.
The agency said it had not found any contraband from Rhea and her brother Showik’s residence in Juhu but there was enough evidence to produce before the court.
“We have sufficient material to arrest her, but I will not comment on the evidence in this case. We will produce that before the court,” the agency added.
