New Delhi: In a big development in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, the judicial custody of Bollywood actor Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik in a drugs case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death was extended till October 20 NDPS.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), probing the drug angle into the late actor’s death has arrested at least 20 people so far and has summoned various Bollywood celebrities.

While applying for bail, Rhea had alleged that she had been pressurised into making self-incriminating confessions during her interrogations by the NCB. The actor had maintained that she has not committed any crime and has been falsely framed in the case. Withdrawing her ‘self-incriminating confessions’, she called her arrest as “unwarranted, unjustified,” and termed it as arbitrary.
