The Narcotics Control Bureau has informed that actor Rhea Chakraborty had received multiple deliveries of ‘ganja’ (weed) from co-accused, which include her brother Showik Chakraborty, which were handed over to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, PTI reported. The anti-drug crackdown agency had filed the draft charges last month in the special NCB court against 35 accused in the drug case linked to Rajbut’s death. Details of the investigation were revealed on Tuesday.

According to the draft charges, as per the Hindustan Times, all the accused entered into a criminal conspiracy between March 2020 and December ‘with each other or in groups’ to procure, purchase, sell and distribute drugs in ‘high society and Bollywood’, the agency shared. Draft charges suggest that the accused, Chakraborty, financed drug trafficking and consumed drugs like ‘ganja’, ‘charas’, cocaine and other psychotropic substances without licence, permit or authorisation in the Mumbai Metropolitan region.

“Therefore, they have been charged under relevant provisions of the NDPS Act, including sections 27 and 27 A (financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders) 28 (punishment for attempts to commit offences), 29 (whoever abets, or is a party to a criminal conspiracy), as per the draft charges,” the report states.

The actor, who is listed as accused number 10, allegedly received many deliveries of ‘ganja’ from accused Samuel Miranda, her brother Showik, Dipesh Sawant and others. She then handed them over to Rajput, the charge claims. She even made payments for those deliveries between March 2020 and September that year.

As per the draft charges, Rhea’s brother was regularly in touch with drug peddlers and had received many deliveries from co-accused after placing orders of weed and hashish. All these deliveries were handed over to Rajput.

Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Bandra residence on June 14 in 2020. His girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, was arrested on September 8 that year by the Narcotics Control Bureau after the agency brought drug-related charges against her in Rajput’s death case. She was granted bail a month later after spending time in Mumbai’s Byculla jail.
