Bombay High Court has granted bail to Rhea Chakraborty in drugs-related charges. However, the bail plea of her brother Showik was denied by the court.
Rhea Chakraborty has been asked to submit ₹ 1 lakh as bond and mark her presence daily at the nearest police station for 10 days after her release. She also has to hand over her passport and cannot travel abroad without the court's permission, reported by Times of India.
Sushant Singh Rajput's employees Dipesh Sawant and Samuel Miranda have also been granted bail.
"We are delighted by the order. Truth and Justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Sarang V Kotwal," said Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde.
NCB sought a stay of a week, however HC says it has imposed stringent conditions and stated 'not inclined to give stay'. Rhea has to appear before a nearest police station regularly. After nearly a month in jail, the actress may walk out today, if the paperwork is done by 5pm.
Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on September 8 by the Narcotics Control Bureau on charges of organizing drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput, a popular movie star who was found dead in his Mumbai apartment on June 14.
She was accused of being "an active member of a drugs syndicate" and financing drugs used by Sushant Singh Rajput, her boyfriend.
In her bail petition, Rhea Chakraborty had said that she and her brother were sole targets of a witch-hunt by multiple agencies who had found no evidence incriminating her in the case.
She had alleged that Sushant Singh Rajput "took advantage of those closest to him to sustain his drug habit" and that she had tried to rid him of it. She also said he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and his family abandoned him at the peak of his depression. His mental health "deteriorated during the lockdown", she claimed, adding that the deaths of actors Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor also had a tremendous impact on him
