It is a groundbreaking revelation in the ongoing Sushant Singh Rajput death saga, the late actor's common law partner Rhea Chakraborty, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday afternoon in Mumbai. The court remanded her for 2 weeks of judicial custody and rejected her application for bail. Chakraborty can now move the high court. The arrest comes after three constant days of questioning by the NCB which is investigating a drug link in the murder of the 34-year-old actor.
According to media reports, during her interrogation Chakraborty, who was in a relationship with Rajput at the time of his death, apparently revealed details about organising drugs for the actor and also using them at times. On Tuesday, Chakraborty was grilled with questions for about five hours before the NCB finally took her into custody. She also was taken for a medical test at a Mumbai Hospital.
One of Rajput's sisters, Shweta Singh Kirti, who has been active on social media since her brother passed away posted a tweet after the news of Chakraborty's arrest broke.
