The Bureau of Narcotics Control on Monday filed an affidavit in the Bombay High Court opposing the bail of Riya Chakraborty and her brother Shovik Chakraborty, saying they were active members of the drug syndicate. The reply filed by NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhade said that there was strong evidence that Rhea was financing drug trafficking. Records from WhatsApp chats, mobiles, laptops and hard disks show that Riya Chakraborty not only continued to deal with it, but also provided money for this illegal business.
The NCB further stated in the affidavit that Riya supported Sushant Singh knowing that Rajput was taking drugs and hid him. The NCB said, “If we look at the whole scene, the current applicant (Riya) knew that Sushant Singh Rajput was using drugs and encouraged it. The current applicant used to store drugs in his house and also gave them to Sushant Singh Rajput.”
The investigating agency further said that Rhea was involved in supplying drugs to high society personalities. The NCB said, “He is an active member of the drug syndicate associated with high society personalities.” There is ample evidence that he was involved in drug trafficking. Riya Chakraborty provided medicines and paid through credit cards, cash and payment gateways.
Significantly, his girlfriend Riya Chakraborty was arrested by the NCB in a drugs case in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. Actress Riya Chakraborty has been lodged in Mumbai’s Byculla Jail for the past several days. A special court in Mumbai has remanded him in judicial custody till October. Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead on June 14 at his home in Bandra, Mumbai.
