Mumbai: Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik Chakraborty has been granted bail by a special court in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Showik was arrested almost three months back in drugs-related charges in the Sushant Singh Rajput case by Narcotics Control Bureau.
Rhea Chakraborty was granted bail and released on October, nearly a month after her arrest by the anti-drugs agency.
Both Rhea and Showik were arrested by the NCB in a drug probe related to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Showik has been in jail since September 4, while Rhea Chakraborty was given bail by the Bombay High Court on October 7.
Earlier, Showik has appealed for bail several times in the past few times in special court and as well as in the Bombay HC, which got rejected.
The Mumbai court cited a recent apex court judgment, which said that statements or confessions before an NCB officer is not admissible evidence. Showik had approached the court for bail in the first week of November.
