Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty, who was in judicial custody since 9 September, has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court (HC) in a drug case linked to the death of her boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
However, the plea of her brother Showik Chakraborty has been rejected by the court.
They had applied for bail in the Bombay High Court, on which the final arguments were heard by Justice S V Kotwal on September 29, reserving the final order on it. The court, today, pronouncing its order approved Rhea's plea on a bond of Rs 1 lakh.
Rhea was arrested on 9 September by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) which is probing the drugs angle in the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Besides her, 19 others including her brother Showik Chakraborty, drug peddlers, suppliers and persons linked with the film industry have also been arrested so far, and several top actresses have been questioned.
