Actress Riya Chakravati, arrested in the drugs case related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, has been facing increasing difficulties. Mumbai’s special court on Tuesday extended Riya’s judicial custody till 6 October.
Earlier, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is investigating the drug angle in the Sushant case, produced Riya in a special court on Tuesday. Special Public Prosecutor Atul Sarpande, appearing in court on behalf of NCB, said that the other accused, including Riya’s brother, will be produced in the court on Wednesday. Earlier on September 11, the special court had rejected the bail plea of Riya, her brother and other accused.
Riya was arrested by the NCB on 9 September after several rounds of questioning in the drugs case. While Shouvik was arrested on 5 September. Here, the High Court has directed the NCB to file a reply by September 30 on the bail plea of drug peddler Zaid Vilatra. On June 14, Sushant, 34, was found dead in his Mumbai flat. Apart from NCB, CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) are investigating from different angles.
