Rhea Chakraborty names Rakul Preet Singh, Sara Ali Khan during NCB probe in drug case


Guwahati: During her NCB probe in Sushant Singh Rajput drug angle, Rhea Chakraborty named actresses Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh too. She also informed that designer Simone Khambatta, Sushant’s friend and former manager Rohini Iyer, and the actor’s ‘Dil Bechara’ director Mukesh Chhabra also consumed the narcotics substances.

Rhea has revealed as many as 15 names who consume drugs, while being interrogated by the Narcotics Control Bureau. It has been learnt that they all belong to B-category of actors. They are now on NCB radar.

Sources inform that Rhea Chakraborty told NCB that 80 percent of Bollywood stars are on drugs. Reports also stated that the NCB will summon 25 prominent Bollywood stars soon. Rhea had already reportedly accepted her role in procuring drugs for Sushant and handling the finances.

The drug angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case came to light after a leaked WhatsApp chat hinted that Rhea Chakraborty, among others, dealt in drugs. After conducting their investigation, NCB arrested Rhea’s brother Showik, followed by her arrest. Sushant’s house manager Dipesh Sawant and a few other drug peddlers were also taken in custody.

A Mumbai special court rejected Rhea, Showik and four other bail applications on Friday.

Sushant was found dead in his house on June 14, 2020 under mysterious circumstances. Mumbai Police had declared that the actor died by suicide, but on Supreme Court’s order, the CBI took over the case. The NCB is investigating drug angle in the case, while ED is looking into financial aspect of it.
