From three consecutive days, actress Rhea Chakraborty has been appearing before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in association with the ongoing inquiry into a possible drugs connection in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
On Tuesday, Chakraborty reached the NCB office, located at Ballard Estate in south Mumbai, around 10.30 am in a car accompanied by a Mumbai Police vehicle. The NCB had interrogated Rhea for six hours on Sunday, later on Monday for eight hours and again for around five hours on Tuesday before placing her under arrest.
Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti was among the first ones to react to the news on Twitter. She wrote, “God is with us”.
