Riya Chakraborty and Sushant Singh Rajput have been with each other since April 2019. Riya was also at the live inn at Sushant’s house for several months.
- The NCB told the court that Riya and her brother encouraged the purchase and sale of drugs
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has opposed the bail plea of actress Riya Chakraborty and her brother Shovik, who were arrested in the Bombay High Court in a drugs case involving the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The NCB said the two had promoted the sale and purchase of drugs. The agency made serious allegations that Riya Chakraborty was not innocent but extremely naughty. He only went to Sushant Singh Rajput to trap him in drugs.
Actress Riya Chakraborty’s bail application was heard in the Bombay High Court on Tuesday during a 24-hour hearing on behalf of the NCB’s lawyer. The verdict has been preserved by recording the statements of all the parties in the court.
‘Rhea active member of the drug industry’
The NCB told the court that Riya Chakraborty was dealing in drugs with full consciousness and with a complete plan. He was an active member of a drug syndicate, which included many celebrities and drug dealers from high society. The NCB has said that there are allegations against Riya Chakraborty for promoting Sushant in the drug abuse case. Riya had drugged Sushant.
‘She cheated on him by staying with Sushant’
The NCB claimed that ‘watching the whole scene of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, it is clear that Riya was aware that Sushant was taking drugs and at this time she was not only encouraged to do so but also encouraged to do so. ‘
‘Criminal conspiracy against Sushant’
The NCB opposed Riya’s bail application, claiming that Riya was a rogue criminal and said that there was a lot of evidence against him which showed that he was involved in drug trafficking. The NCB has made it clear that under the criminal conspiracy, Riya supported other defendants in the drug trade, encouraged them to do so, and even assisted them with financial assistance.
Riya also admitted in court
In an affidavit filed in the Bombay High Court by NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhade, Riya said in a statement that she had given the money to Samuel Miranda and Deepesh Sawant, which was later given to Sushant for consumption. The NCB said it was clear that the money paid for the drugs was not for personal use but to be given to someone else and that it came under Section 27A of the NDPS 1985.
If Rhea leaves, the evidence will be lost
The NCB further stated in an affidavit that the investigation is at a critical stage and the investigation will be hampered if Rhea gets bail at this time. The NCB further said that there is a lot of evidence to prove that Rhea was involved in drug trafficking. He not only assisted in the supply of medicines but also paid for them through credit cards, cash and many others.
The agency further stated that Rhea allowed the drugs to be kept in her home and Sushant was taken. The case now also comes under the NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act), the NCB said.
