Hours after she was summoned, Actress Rhea Chakraborty on Sunday appeared before the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for questioning in the drugs case linked to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, and in which her brother Showik, along with seven others, has been arrested.

Escorted by police personnel, the 28-year-old arrived at the agency’s office in the Ballard Estate area in Mumbai this afternoon.

Earlier int the day, NCB Joint Director Sameer Wankhede said, “Summon has been given to Rhea. She was at her home.”

Advocate Satish Maneshinde, who represents Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, said the actor is prepared for arrest.

“Rhea Chakraborty is ready for arrest as this is a witch hunt and if loving some one is a crime she will face the consequences of her love. Being innocent, she has not approached any court for Anticipatory Bail in all the cases foisted by Bihar Police now with CBI , ED and NCB,” he said in a statement.

The NCB, in its remand application, said Showik will be confronted with the other accused and Rhea, who is not named in this FIR yet. The agency further said that Showik and Samuel Miranda, Sushant Singh Rajput’s housekeeper, were involved in organising weed for the later actor.

An official said the summons is in connection with some “incriminating chats” they found in a WhatsApp group that had Rhea, Showik, Miranda and Dipesh Sawant, Rajput’s cook, as members. Sawant too was placed under arrest by the NCB late Saturday.

It was the ED that was investigating a case against Rhea and her family which had passed details of chats from Rhea’s phone to the NCB that led to an FIR being registered.

While so far there have not been any major seizures of marijuana from those arrested, the NCB has maintained its case is about the conspiracy to procure and supply marijuana, for which seizures are not necessary.
