The Narcotics Control Bureau or NCB has summoned actress Rhea Chakraborty for questioning her in a drug angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Two days after her brother Showik was arrested by the NCB, the actress has now been asked to join the probe. The summons was served by officers on Sunday morning at her Mumbai home.
Rhea Chakraborty left her home for the questioning after 11 AM, NDTV reported.
On Saturday, the NCB said in its remand statement that Showik Chakraborty “will be confronted with her sister” Rhea after the anti-drugs probe agency was given his custody till September 9. Mr Chakraborty has “given so many names with whom he was dealing in drugs,” the NCB said.
“There are specific roles/ingredients of criminal conspiracy, abetments and various attempts to commit offences,” the probing agency told Mumbai court Saturday afternoon, adding that “the financial trail of all previous transactions of drug purchase has to be verified”.
“Rhea Chakraborty is ready for arrest as it’s a witch-hunt. If loving someone is a crime she’ll face consequences. Being innocent she hasn’t approached any court for an anticipatory bail in all cases foisted by Bihar Police with CBI, ED & NCB, ” Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde was quoted as saying today by news agency ANI.
Earlier, on Saturday, Indrajit Chakraborty, Rhea Chakraborty’s father, issued a statement condemning the arrest of his 24-year-old son.
“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. You have effectively demolished a middle-class family. But of course, for the sake of justice everything is justified. Jai hind,” the statement from Lt Col Indrajit Chakraborty (Retd).
