December 2, 2020: Actor Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik Chakraborty has been granted bail by a special court in Mumbai nearly three months after his arrest over drugs-related charges in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.

Earlier, Rhea Chakraborty was released on bail in October, nearly a month after her arrest.

Showik Chakraborty was arrested on September 4, along with Mr Rajput's house manager Samuel Miranda, after being questioned by the NCB, which is probing allegations of drug abuse surrounding Mr Rajput's death in June.

As per reports, they were charged under multiple sections of the anti-narcotics law.

The Mumbai court cited a recent Supreme Court judgment which said that statements or confessions before an NCB officer is not admissible evidence.

Mr Chakraborty had approached the court for bail in the first week of November.
