For the uninitiated , the NCB had charged the accused on charges including Section 8(c) read with 20(b)(ii)(A), 22, 27, 27A, 28, 29, and 30 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

In addition, the prosecution asked the court to file charges against Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik for using drugs and for obtaining and paying for them on behalf of SSR. 

The court was slated to submit these charges against each and every accused, according to public prosecutor Sarpande. He stated that it was impossible because some of the accused had filed for discharge.

The court insisted that the charges wouldn't be filed until the accused's discharging pleas were resolved. 

On Wednesday, Rhea, Showik, and all the other defendants appeared in court. The case was set for hearing on July 12 by special judge V.G. Raghuwanshi. 

For the unversed, Rhea Chakraborty was detained in September 2020. She received bail from the Bombay High Court about a month later. Apart from her, a number of other defendants who were allegedly involved in the consumption, possession, and funding of drugs have also been released on bail.
