Mumbai: A Mumbai court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty till October 20.
Both Rhea and Showik were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with a drugs probe related to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case last month.
A special NDPS court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of the actress, her brother and other accused arrested by the NCB till October 20, special public prosecutor Atul Sarpande said.
Earlier, the special court rejected the bail pleas of both the actress and her brother.
The NCB began its investigation after the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which was probing money laundering charges linked to the case, shared some WhatsApp chats retrieved from Rhea’s mobile phone, hinting at the alleged use of banned drugs.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is separately probing a case against the 28-year-old and others for allegedly abetting the actor’s suicide.
