The NCB has arrested Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, Sushant Singh Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda, and staff Dipesh Sawant on charges of the procurement of drugs. All of them are currently under judicial custody. The actress and her brother’s custody have also been extended to October 6, 2020. Moreover, their bail plea hearing has also been postponed to September 29 by the Bombay High Court. Reports suggest that their lawyer Satish Maneshinde has questioned NCB’s take on the matter.

He has alleged that the agency does not have the jurisdiction for initiating the enquiry. Maneshinde has told the court that the drug case should be probed by CBI instead of NCB. For the unversed, the HC is yet to pass any order on the bail pleas filed by Rhea and her brother Showik. It has instead suggested that NCB should file a reply by Monday, September 28, 2020. The brother-sister duo had approached the HC earlier but their bail pleas were rejected.

Meanwhile, Maneshinde has further mentioned at the court that CBI is empowered to investigate cases that fall under the NDPS act. Therefore, he says that NCB should hand over the probe to the agency. He further stated that Rhea and Showik should not have been booked under Section 27A of the NDPS act. On the other hand, Rhea Chakraborty had earlier said in her bail plea that she paid for smaller portions of drugs that were allegedly consumed by Sushant Singh Rajput.

E RIGHT NOW About 10% of county lines drug networks in England and Wales have been shut down following a week-long operation, police have said. The crackdown last week resulted in the arrests of more than 1,000 people and the seizure of 18 guns, more than £500,000 in cash, and Class A drugs worth over £1m. Police said the operation resulted in the shutting down of 102 "deal lines", linked to unique phone numbers used to buy drugs. This is believed to be at least a tenth of the UK's estimated 800 to 1,100 active county lines, each of which can make about £25,000 a week.Thanks

NCB is walking on thin ice with just WhatsApp chats & zero recovery of significant amount of drugs. The only drugs that were found were 59 grams of marijuana on one of the peddlers which are still disputed. And Sushant's dope box was empty the day he was found hanging. Indians from Whats app university should realize that cases based purely on WhatsApp chats do not stand a chance in court. These chats may be relevant enough to create sensation in the media & may be presented as electronic evidence under 65B to prove that communication passed through the 2 phones, but without sufficient evidence to fasten any criminal liability or responsibility on the 2 phone users, the evidence is not enough to start a trial. Both the users may say someone else used their phones. If one person admits to the conversation & selling of the drug then that person becomes accused. Still his/ her statement will not be admissible because statement of one co accused against another co accused is not admissible in court. Unless the other person admits to purchase & consumption of drugs, he/she cannot be charged. Even if there is a chat of sending and receiving drugs, offense of selling & purchase of drugs has to be established & presented as direct evidence. You cannot use just a WhatsApp chats for the purpose of a trial. No court is going to accept it.

If this is the correct news , that means CBI is bought. Sad that there will not be any justice . There is only a drama going on.

I thought the same ! The reason is so lame though. It's NCB issue and no bail will be given. He doesn't know what else to say as all evidences are against her 'druggie'

Maneshinde always gives lame arguments. Why is he so obsessed with jurisdiction :). NCB has full right to investigate and is rightly doing so. Please do not waste the court's time.

Nope, NCB is "bought" by the govt, that's why they're trying to frame Rhea. Wake up and smell the ganja.

If sushant was a druggie what was rheas whole family doing with him. Commonsense says that you would get your daughter away from a druggie not treat him as part of your family.
