Rhea Chakraborty shifted from NCB office to Byculla jail

Mumbai, Sep 9 (PTI) A day after the Narcotics Control
Bureau (NCB) arrested her, Rhea Chakraborty was on Wednesday
shifted from the anti-drug agency”s office in south Mumbai to
the Byculla jail here.

Shortly after her arrest on Tuesday in a drugs case
linked to her boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput”s
death, she was sent in judicial custody till September 22 by a
local court.

On Wednesday, she stepped out of the NCB office at
10.15 am after spending the night there and was taken to the
Byculla jail by the agency officials.

The court had rejected her bail application. The NCB
had told the court that she was an “active member” of a drugs
syndicate and procured drugs for Rajput, her boyfriend.

The NCB, however, said it did not want her custody as
it had already questioned her for three days.

Immediately after her arrest, the 28-year-old Rhea was
taken for medical tests including COVID-19 test to the civic-
run Sion hospital in Central Mumbai. At the hospital, her
antigen test for COVID-19 came out negative, officials said.

She was then taken to the NCB office in south Mumbai
around 7.15 pm, and produced before the court through
video-conference. PTI DC VT
