In 2018, Rhea posted a picture with the famous Bollywood director, Mahesh Bhatt, for which netizens started trolling her badly and compared her with Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu’s Jodi.
On 28 July 2020, after more than a month of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, an F.I.R. was lodged against Rhea by Sushant’s father K. K. Singh at the Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna, and a four-member team of Patna Police left for Mumbai to question Rhea Chakraborty and her family. In the F.I.R., Sushant’s father made severe allegations against Rhea. According to K. K. Singh, Rhea had kept Sushant away from his family, and she had kept Sushant completely in her possession.
Sushant’s father also alleged that Rhea also controlled Sushant’s bank accounts, and she had access to his credit cards. He further mentioned in the F.I.R. that Sushant called his sister and told her that Rhea had threatened him to show doctor receipts to the media and would prove him mad. After that, no person would give him work. On 8 June night, Sushant’s secretary Disha committed suicide. Rhea had appointed her as Sushant’s secretary. Later, Rhea blocked Sushant’s number on her cell. Sushant was afraid that Rhea could have made him responsible for his manager’s suicide as she had threatened to frame him in the secretary’s suicide case.
After “Bihar Police” started a separate investigation into the Sushant’s death, a dispute ensued between “Maharashtra Police” and “Bihar Police.” Later, various online campaigns surfaced demanding a “C.B.I. investigation” into the matter. Many conspiracy theories fueled these campaigns. In August 2020, the center told the “Supreme Court” that it had accepted the “Bihar government’s” recommendation for a” C.B.I.” probe into the Sushant’s death.
The agency filed a First Information Report (F.I.R.) against Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, familiar friend Samuel Miranda, and three others. In a statement, the agency said, “C.B.I. has registered a case related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on the request of ‘Bihar Government’ and further notification from ‘Government Of India’ and taken over the investigation of the case, earlier registered at police station Rajiv Nagar, Patna vide F.I.R. no.241/2020 dated 25-7-2020. The case was registered against six accused and others.”
Rhea also came under the scanner of the “Enforcement Directorate” (E.D.) and the “Narcotics Control Bureau” (N.C.B.) for an investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. Both the agencies summoned her and questioned her for hours. After asking her for three consecutive days, the “Narcotics Control Bureau” (N.C.B.) arrested her on 8 September 2020. The “Narcotics Control Bureau” started its inquiries based on WhatsApp chats retrieved from Rhea Chakraborty’s phone, which revealed conversations around procuring drugs, allegedly for Sushant Singh Rajput. The bureau claimed that Dipesh Sawant (a member of Sushant’s domestic staff) collected and delivered 165 grams of marijuana between March 2020 and June 2020 on orders from Rhea and Showik Chakraborty.
After Rhea was booked under “Section 27 A” of the “Narcotic Drugs” and “Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act” on 8 September 2020, the same day, she appeared before a “Magistrate’s court,” which sent her to 14-day “Judicial custody,” she had to spent that night at the “N.C.B. office.” The next day on 9 September 2020, she was sent to the “Byculla Jail.” After a “Magistrate’s court rejected her bail plea,” she moved to the “Special Court.” In her bail plea in the “Special Court,” she claimed herself to be innocent and accused the “N.C.B.” of falsely implicating her in the case. However, the “Special Court” also denied her bail request on 11 September 2020.
On 7 October 2020, the “Bombay High Court” granted her cash bail of ₹ 1 lakh.
