NCB to file charge sheet in SSR case against 33, including Rhea

Published

on

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) which registered two cases in connection with the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput after a letter from Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to file a charge sheet against 33 people, including his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik in a court here, sources said.

According to senior NCB sources, related with the probe, the drug law enforcement agency will be filing first charge sheet running in over 12,000 pages in the case against 33 people.

NCB sources said that names of Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea, Showik, Sushant’s former manager Samuel Miranda, Sushant’s house help Dipesh Sawant, drug peddler Anuj Keshwani, from whom commercial quantity of drugs (LSD sheets and marijuana) was first recovered, two college students who are allegedly last mile peddlers, two foreign nationals including Agisilaos Demetriades, brother of Arjun Rampal’s South African model Gabriella Demetriades and Kshitij Prasad, former executive producer associated with Dharma Productions are said to figure in the charge sheet.

However, senior officials remained tight-lipped on the issue.

The NCB had in August last year registered two cases related to drugs in connection with the death of Rajput. The NCB had arrested Rhea and Showik in connection with the case besides several other persons in September last year. They are currently out on bail.

On June 14, 2020, the 34-year-old actor was found hanging at his rented duplex flat in a posh society in Bandra, triggering a massive furore in Bollywood and political circles.

The NCB also questioned several celebrities, including Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Rakul Preet Singh, Karishma Prakash and others in connection with the case.

Besides NCB, the Central Bureau of Investigation and the ED are investigating the death and financial angle of the case.

Kangana Ranaut issued bailable warrant

Published

on

A Mumbai court issued a bailable warrant against actress Kangana Ranaut on Monday after she failed to appear for the hearing of lyricist Javed Akhtar’s defamation case against her. Akhtar’s advocate Vrinda Grover then filed an immediate response asking the court to issue a non-bailable warrant against the actress.

Talking to IANS over a whatsapp text, Vrinda Grover said: “In defiance of the court’s order of 1st February, Ms. Ranaut did not appear before the court today. On the basis of Javed Akhtar’s verification statement, material evidence, including the Republic TV program where Ms. Ranaut made defamatory remarks, and the police report inquiry examining the witnesses, the Ld. Magistrate has summoned Ms. Ranaut as an accused. It is a matter of record that there is no application filed by Ms. Ranaut against this Order and no stay of proceedings in her favour. Thus, the court in accordance with law issued bailable warrants against Ms. Ranaut on my submissions. The defamation complaint filed by Mr. Javed Akhtar shall now proceed to the next stage in law.”

Akhtar had filed a defamation case against Ranaut after she accused him on a national news channel of being part of a “coterie” in Bollywood. She made the comment after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput last year.

The Andheri metropolitan magistrate had issued a bailable warrant on February 1, asking Kangana to appear on March 1.

When contacted, the actress’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui said, “I have already challenged. I appeared in the court today before the judge. I have told the judge very categorically that the process of law is not being followed. Section 200 compliance is not being done. The judge knows that I will be quashing the entire proceedings. I will either apply for revision or quashing. Most probably I will be going for quashing. Therefore the judge has given the date of March 26.”

Explaining what Section 200 means and why the proceeding from Javed Akhtar’s side are incomplete, Siddiqui said: “Section 200 is when you file a private complaint, saying ‘I am Javed Akhtar and this has what has happened to me and I have got four witnesses and I name these witnesses in the complaint. So, my verification oath has to be done as well as for all witnesses’. In this case only Javed Akhtar’s verification oath was done, whereas no verification oath was done for other witnesses. So, this is a mandatory provision. I am challenging the whole thing.”

Will the actress be appearing in court on March 26?

“I really don’t think so, but can’t say. We will see while building the case up, exactly what the requirements are. But 99.9 per cent she won’t be making an appearance,” said Rizwan.
