Drugs case: NCB files draft charges against Rhea Chakraborty, brother Showik

Mumbai/IBNS: The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has filed draft charges against Indian actor Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik in connection with a drug case linked to the death of Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput, media reports said.

The draft charges were filed before a special court where the two accused were present.

The prosecution has proposed the court to frame the charges against Rhea and Showik for allegedly consuming drugs and paying for the same for Rajput, who was the actor's boyfriend.

Rhea was arrested in 2020 and she was granted bail almost after a month.

The arrest of Rhea and Showik took place after the investigators, who were probing Rajput's death, found the drug link.

Rajput, 34, was found dead at his Bandra home on Aug 14, 2020.

His death had prompted a section of Bollywood to suspect a murder of the actor, who had earned fame for essaying MS Dhoni onscreen.
