Actor Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Mumbai under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS Act) in relation to allegations of procurement and consumption of drugs, said KPS Malhotra, Deputy Director, Narcotics Control Bureau to the media.

She was questioned for several hours on Monday and Tuesday by the NCB. Her brother Showik Chakraborty was arrested last week.

Rhea is accused of abetting the suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, which happened on July 14. The Central Bureau of Investigation is investigating that case on orders of the Supreme Court.

Earlier today, the Mumbai police had registered an FIR against the sisters of Sushant Singh Rajput and a Delhi-based doctor on Rhea's complaint that they hatched a conspiracy to serve banned drugs to Rajput on a false prescription which could lead to chronic anxiety attack resulting in the commission of suicide.
