This must have come as a sigh of relief for Rhea. The court has also granted bail to Sushant’s employees Dipesh Sawant and Samuel Miranda.
Reacting on Court’s order, Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde told NDTV, “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 the 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”
Rhea and her brother Showik were arrested by the NCB on September 8 after their drugs-related chat surfaced during the ED’s probe. NCB had claimed that Rhea and Showik were ‘active members of drugs syndicate’ and hence their release would tamper the case. However, the court has finally granted bail to the 28-year-old actress. Rhea has time and again said that she helped to arrange drugs for her late boyfriend Sushant but she has herself never consumed it.
