Drugs case: Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik gets bail



A Mumbai court on Wednesday granted bail to actress Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik Chakraborty, who was arrested in a drugs case linked to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had arrested Showik Chakraborty in September this year under provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

Special NDPS court judge GB Gurao granted bail to him on Wednesday on a personal bond of Rs 50,000.

In his bail plea, Showik Chakraborty had relied on a recent Supreme Court judgment which said that "confessional statements" made to NCB officials cannot be considered as evidence.

He reiterated that he has been "falsely implicated" in the case. (PTI)
