Rhea Chakraborty had moved the Sessions Court with a fresh bail plea, saying she was ‘coerced into self-incriminating confessions’, which she later retracted.
However, on Friday the special NDPS Court rejected the bail pleas of Rhea, Showik Chakraborty, Sushant’s staff Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Sawant as well as drug peddlers, Basit Parihar and Zaid Vilatra.
All the six accused are likely to move the Bombay High Court shortly for bail.
“Once we get a copy of the court order, we will decide next week on the course of action about approaching the High Court,” Satish Maneshinde said.
As per NDTV report, Narcotics Control Bureau had argued that if released on bail, Rhea “may tamper with the evidence and also try to win over witnesses using her position in the society and money power”.
Moreover, it also said that the drugs financed by Rhea were not meant for personal consumption but for supplying them to another person. “Therefore, Section 27A of NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act) is applicable and she cannot escape the clutches of law,” it argued.
Until further relief, Rhea Chakraborty will stay in Byculla jail, where she was taken after her first bail request was rejected by a magistrate who sent her in judicial custody till September 22.
