Not only the CBI is investigating the suicide and murder angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, but Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is also interrogating the drug angle in the case. In the result of which, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the NCB on September 8, 2020, under the NDPS act. Rhea’s brother, Showik Chakraborty, Samuel Miranda (Sushant's manager), Deepesh Sawant (Sushant's former cook) and several other alleged drug peddlers were also arrested by the NCB. Even the top actresses of B-town, Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan were probed by the NCB officials for their alleged involvement in the drug nexus.
It has been almost a month now since Rhea Chakraborty's arrest and after several bail pleas being rejected, the High Court finally granted her the bail. But her brother, Showik Chakraborty will still remain in judicial custody. According to a TOI report, while Rhea’s bail plea was accepted with a Rs 1 lakh bond, the court rejected Showik's plea. Sushant Singh Rajput’s manager, Samuel Miranda and house help, Dipesh Sawant were also granted bail. Rhea is ordered to mark her presence for 10 days at the police station after release, deposit her passport, not travel abroad without court permission and inform investigating officer if she has to leave Greater Mumbai.
Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer, Satish Manshinde released a statement confirming the same, “We are Delighted by the Order of the Hon'ble Bombay High Court granting bail to Rhea Chakraborty. Truth and Justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Sarang V Kotwal. The arrest and custody of Rhea was totally unwarranted and beyond the reach of law. The hounding and witch hunt by three central agencies .. the CBI, ED and NCB of Rhea should come to an end. We remain committed to Truth. Satya Meva Jayate.” Reportedly, Rhea will be released in the evening.

While Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty’s relationship was a rumour before the former’s demise and the couple had never officially accepted their dating speculations, it was only confirmed when she had posted a eulogy for her late boyfriend on his one-month death anniversary. Rhea had posted pictures with Sushant and had written, "Still struggling to face my emotions.. an irreparable numbness in my heart . You are the one who made me believe in love, the power of it . You taught me how a simple mathematical equation can decipher the meaning of life and I promise you that I learnt from you every day. I will never come to terms with you not being here anymore. I know you’re in a much more peaceful place now."
Rhea Chakraborty, in her emotional note for Sushant Singh Rajput on his one-month death anniversary, had continued, "The moon, the stars, the galaxies would’ve welcomed “the greatest physicist “with open arms . Full of empathy and joy, you could lighten up a shooting star - now, you are one . I will wait for you my shooting star and make a wish to bring you back to me. You were everything a beautiful person could be, the greatest wonder that the world has seen . My words are incapable of expressing the love we have and I guess you truly meant it when you said it is beyond both of us. You loved everything with an open heart, and now you’ve shown me that our love is indeed exponential. Be in peace Sushi. 30 days of losing you but a lifetime of loving you... Eternally connected, To infinity and beyond." (Also Read: Rhea Chakraborty's Bail Hearing Suspended, She Alleges Sushant Was Addicted To 'Cannabis Cigarettes')
