Mumbai: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday arrested actress Rhea Chakraborty in connection with the drug abuse case linked to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.

She was arrested by officials after three days of questioning by the NCB.

She appeared before the NCB for the third consecutive day today.

Rhea Chakraborty was interrogated for five hours today, third day in a row. She was grilled for six hours on Sunday and eight hours on Monday. She will now be taken to a hospital for medical checkup.

Security was beefed up outside the NCB office where Rhea was being interrogated.

Sources told UNI Rhea had given about 25 names from Bollywood in the drugs angle. However, it could not be immediately confirmed officially.

This brings to ten the total number of arrested made so far in the drugs 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 years and committed suicide due to consumption of illegally administered medicines, drugs."

Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai residence on June 14.

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.
