Rhea Chakraborty’s name came out in drug angle after Enforcement Directorate, investigating money laundering, confiscated her digital devices where the forensic team of ED recovered a deleted WhatsApp drug chat from her mobile, which roped in the Narcotics Control Bureau and after 3 days rigorous interrogation NCB arrested her on September 8, under drug-related charges. During her questioning, Rhea had revealed that she used to procure drugs for her late boyfriend Sushant but kept on denying doing drugs herself. However, as per the latest reports, Rhea has finally given-in to NCB’s questioning and confessed to consuming drugs herself.
A source close to NCB has revealed to media that the ‘Jalebi’ actress has confessed doing drugs after the federal investigating body told her that procuring and peddling is a bigger offense than consuming the drugs. The media report quoted source, “While the actor had earlier claimed that she had only procured drugs for Sushant and his friends, she has now admitted that she did consume drugs herself. Rhea cracked after the NCB made her realize that procuring and peddling narcotics was a more serious offense than consuming them.”
As per the report, Rhea yielded at NCB’s 55th question and told the officials that she was tutored by her team for the answers she gave to NCB.
Meanwhile, Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty both are under NCB’s 14-days judicial custody and have been denied bail pleas twice by the magistrate court and sessions court of Mumbai. As per reports, speculations of Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde to move Bombay High Court to apply for a fresh bail plea are making rounds.
