Rhea Chakraborty along with brother Showik Chakraborty was arrested by the NCB under various sections of the NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Act including possession, purchase and transporting, financing illicit traffic and more.
After a month of staying in the Byculla jail, Rhea was granted bail by the High Court and was released from judicial custody. While Rhea left the jail and returned back to her house, her brother Showik Chakraborty continues to remain in jail as his bail was rejected.
On Tuesday, Showik's bail plea was heard and the special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act court extended his judicial custody till November 3, 2020.
Showik was arrested after he was named by drug peddler Abdel Basit Parihar during his interrogation with the NCB.
