The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Wednesday filed charges against Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Sauvik in a special court in Mumbai. However, the court is yet to frame charges against the two.
These allegations are related to the drugs case that came to light after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Its next hearing will be on July 12. During this process all the named accused including Riya and Sauvik were present.
Urge the court to decide these charges
According to PTI , Public Prosecutor Atul Sarpande has urged the court to frame charges against Riya and Sauvik for consuming drugs, buying them and leading them to Sushant.
According to Sarpande, the charges contained in the chargesheet filed earlier in the court against all the accused have been upheld.
Riya and Sauvik were arrested by NCB in September, 2020. After this, Riya was granted bail after three months and then after three months.
How is Riya trapped in the case?
People across the country were shocked by the death of 34-year-old actor Sushant Singh on June 14, 2020 . Sushant’s body was found hanging in his house.
At that time Sushant lived with his girlfriend Riya. After some of Riya’s WhatsApp chats were leaked, the talk of drugs came to the fore and NCB’s entry was made in the matter. The names of Sara Ali Khan, Rakulpreet Singh and Deepika Padukone also figured in the NCB’s drug investigation.
Riya’s lawyer had demanded SIT
After getting NCB’s clean chit to Aryan Khan in the cruise-drug case, lawyer Satish Manshinde had demanded a similar probe in Riya’s case.
He said that like Aryan, no drug was recovered from Riya’s possession. In such a situation, the truth of this matter should also come out.
He had also demanded from the NCB to form an SIT to investigate the matter.
Riya made her big screen debut in 2012 in a Telugu film. In the same year, he made his Bollywood debut with the film ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’. In 2018, he got headlines from the film ‘Jalebi’.
Still waiting for the results of CBI investigation after two years
Sushant’s death is one of the most talked about mysterious deaths in the country. Everyone wants to know whether it was suicide or murder.
CBI investigation is going on in this case but even after a lapse of two years, no concrete results have come out yet. Millions of fans along with Sushant’s family await the results of the investigation.
The initial investigation was done by Mumbai Police. The case was handed over to the CBI in August 2020.
