Bombay High Court has granted bail to Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend and actor Rhea Chakraborty after nearly a month of her arrest in a drug-related case. It is reported that she got bail on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh. The high court said that Rhea should mark her presence for 10 days in the police station and deposit her passport so that she cannot travel abroad with the court’s permission. And whenever she wants to leave Mumbai, Rhea needs to inform the investigating officer. Sushant Singh Rajput’s employees Dipesh Sawant and Samuel Miranda have also been granted bail. However, Rhea Chakraborty’s brother Showik Chakraborty didn’t get bail. Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde said: “We are delighted by the order. Truth and Justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Sarang V Kotwal. The arrest and custody of Rhea was totally unwarranted and beyond the reach of law. The hounding and witch-hunt by three central agencies, the CBI, Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Control Bureau should come to an end. We remain committed to truth. Satyameva Jayate”.
