After a long drawn out media trial, Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau for an alleged role in ‘narcotics trafficking’.
Soon after her arrest, Rhea’s 2009 tweet where the actor is talking about ‘narcotic trafficking’ went viral on social media. Rhea, in the tweet, wrote, “just stepped out of a weird scary engrossing story of an indian girl ….who served 4 n a half year jail sentence for narcotic trafikking.”
The Narcotics Control Bureau on Tuesday arrested Rhea after three days of grilling to unravel the drugs nexus in the film industry. On day three of her interrogation by the NCB, Rhea admitted that she was consuming not just marijuana, but also hard drugs, as per sources.
The agency would now dig deeper into Rhea’s role in not just consumption but procurement, facilitation, transportation, and also the dealing of the narcotic drugs. The actor had earlier admitted ‘procuring drugs’ along with her brother Showik, who has been arrested by NCB.
The old, unconnected tweet invited a fresh lot of trolling of Rhea. Have a look:
Journalist Arnab Goswami too found some space in the celebrations.
Meanwhile, NCB was granted 4-day custody of Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda by the Mumbai court. The two will be in NCB remand till September 9, 2020.
