Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty has been charged in a drugs case which involves her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, media reports said.

Chakraborty has been charged for buying and purchasing a small quantity of marijuana for Rajput, who was found dead at his flat in Mumbai in 2020.

The chargesheet filed by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) names Chakraborty and 34 others who are accused in the case.

Her brother Showik Chakraborty has also been named as an accused in the case.

Chakraborty 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 Jun 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.
