Sushant Singh Rajput case: actor Rhea Chakraborty moved to jail


Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty has been moved to jail by India’s narcotics control authority for allegedly buying drugs for her actor-boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput.

The 34-year-old Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai home on June 14th.

Police said he had killed himself, however his family registered a police complaint against Chakraborty, accusing her of abetment to suicide.

She is yet to comment but denied any wrongdoing in earlier statements.

According to the BBC, Chakraborty spent the night at the Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) office in Mumbai after she was arrested by the agency on Tuesday.

She was moved to a women’s jail on Wednesday morning.

Her brother Showik, and Rajput’s former house manager Samuel Miranda, were also arrested last week in the same drugs case, but the charges against them have not been revealed.

All three are reportedly accused of organizing and financing Rajput’s alleged consumption of cannabis.

The case is reportedly connected to the investigation into his death.
