Denying bail to actor Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested a week ago on drugs charges linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation, a court in Mumbai reasoned that if she was released, she would alert “other persons” she had named and they could destroy evidence.
The sessions court ruled that Rhea Chakraborty’s alleged offence — financing drugs procured for her boyfriend actor Sushant Singh Rajput – was non-bailable.
It also dismissed her argument that the number of drugs seized in the case was only 59 grams.Team Rhea plans to go to the Bombay High Court next.
“According to the prosecution, the accused has taken the names of other persons.The investigation in respect of those persons is in process.
If the accused is released on bail then she will alert those persons and they will destroy the evidence.There is a possibility of tampering of evidence,” says the detailed order of the court.
“The investigation is at a preliminary stage and if the accused is released on bail then she will tamper the prosecution evidence.Hence, in such a circumstance I find that applicant/accused is not entitled to bail,” the judge said.
