On Friday, Mumbai Court dismissed bail requests from Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty and the other four in a scandal related to the death of late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, filed by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
According to sources, during Rhea’s interrogation with the NCB, she revealed some names of Bollywood celebrities who use and obtain drugs. As many as 15 B-towners are now on NCB’s radar. With what sources suggest, it has been learned that these 15 additionals belong to Category B actors.
During trials, Rhea Chakraborty named actresses Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh too. Also, informing the NCB that designer Simone Khambatta, Sushant’s friend, and former manager Rohini Iyer and Mukesh Chhabra also consumed the narcotic substances.
In addition to the case, an important detail was tagged. It came to notice that during the lockdown period, a mail was sent from Sushant’s house to Rhea’s residence by courier. Dipesh Sawant allegedly gave the package from Sushant’s home to the courier boy and delivered it to Rhea. Showik took the very mail from the courier boy. The sources say the parcel contained half a kilo of buds, and this letter was sent during April.
Some household items were also packed in this mail package with buds, evidently, drugs, to avoid suspicion. The headphone package was sent by courier to avoid getting caught during police checks while on lockdown.
The courier boy identifies Dipesh Sawant and Showil Chakraborty. Additionally, details of the messaging boy’s phone call were traced to Showik and Dipesh.
