According to a report in Times of India, the NCB submitted in the court that Rhea Chakraborty is an active member of a drug syndicate connected with high society personalities and drug suppliers. 

Reportedly, the NCB said that Rhea is accused of harbouring late actor Sushant Singh Rajput for consumption of drugs. As per reports, NCB said that the “applicant being aware of the fact that Sushant Singh Rajput being someone who is engaged in consumption has harboured him and concealed him whilst he was engaged in consumption of drugs”.

Meanwhile, NCB has filed affidavits in Bombay High Court seeking rejection of the bail pleas of the siblings. According to a report by Indian Express, the affidavits that were submitted by NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede stated that the drugs, in which Rhea and Showik are accused of, were not meant for personal consumption. “Electronic evidence such as WhatsApp chats, records were retrieved from the mobile, laptop and hard-disk and it indicated payment made for the drugs. Thus, there is ample evidence to show that the present applicant Rhea has not only regularly dealt (with) but has also financed illicit trafficking of drugs,” the report stated.
