Rhea Chakraborty moved to women's jail in Mumbai, bail hearing tomorrow
Mumbai : Actress Rhea Chakraborty has been moved to a women's jail on Wednesday morning, one day after she was arrested by the NCB in a drug-related case linked to Sushant Singh Rajput. She was sent to jail for 14 days during a video hearing by a magistrate who rejected her bail last night.
Her bail plea will be heard again on Wednesday.
The Byculla jail is the only prison for women in Mumbai and currently has high-profile inmates including Sheena Bora murder accused Indrani Mukerjea and activist Sudha Bhardwaj, arrested in the Koregaon-Bhima case.
Rhea has been charged with organizing drugs for late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. However, there is no mention of her using the drugs in papers submitted by the NCB.
Amid charges, she can face a jail term of up to 10 years.
Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty are accused of arranging drugs with help from Sushant Singh Rajput's employees Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant, who were allegedly in touch with drug dealers.
While mainstream Bollywood has been largely silent, several prominent members of the film fraternity have come out in Rhea Chakraborty's support on social media, as a counter to a large section that has targeted her over Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
