Mumbai: Actress Rhea Chakraborty, whose name has emerged in the death case of Sushant Singh Rajput, appeared before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for the third consecutive day on Tuesday.

According to reports, the process to arrest her by the Narcotics Control Bureau has been initiated.

She is being quizzed by the NCB in connection with the drugs-related allegations in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.

The actress has been named as an accused in the CBI investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput's death case.

Rhea's lawyer said: "Three central agencies hounding a single woman just because she was in love with a drug addict who was suffering from mental health issues for several yrs & committed suicide due to consumption of illegally administered medicines, drugs."

The Mumbai Police have filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Sushant Singh Rajput's sisters and others following actress Rhea Chakraborty's complaint alleging that the late actor was prescribed drugs without consultation, media reports said.

 The FIR has been registered against Sushant's sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh and Dr Tarun Kumar of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital.

Meanwhile, the actress' brother Showik Chakraborty and Sushant’s house manager Samuel Miranda, who were arrested by the NCB under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, have been remanded to NCB till Sept 9.

The NCB has also arrested Dipesh Sawant, the house helper of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, in connection with the case.

 NCB is the third central agency to join the probe into the death of Sushant, after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The NCB got into action after the Enforcement Directorate came across chats pertaining to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

Sushant was found dead at his own flat in Mumbai's Bandra on Jun 14.
