Rhea Chakraborty moves court again to seek bail
Actress Rhea Chakraborty, arrested by the NCB in a drugs case linked to her boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, on Wednesday moved a bail plea before a sessions court in Mumbai.
This is her second attempt to seek release after a magistrate court on Tuesday refused to grant her bail. In the fresh plea, filed by her lawyer Satish Maneshinde, the 28-year-old actress claimed to be “innocent”. “She has not committed any crime whatsoever and has been falsely implicated in the case,” said the plea.
The court will hear the bail application on Thursday.
Meanwhile, other accused, including the actress’s brother Showik Chakraborty, Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Sawant and drug peddlers Zaid Vilatra and Abdel Basit Parihar, were sent to 14-day judicial custody by the sessions court.
Showik and Sawant have applied for bail and their pleas would also be heard on Thursday, he added.
