Actor Rhea Chakraborty, arrested over drugs-related charges in the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation, has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court. Her brother Showik’s bail has been rejected.

After exactly a month in jail for her alleged involvement in a drug cartel, Rhea Chakraborty received bail from the Bombay High Court on Wednesday. The development led to ecstatic reactions from Bollywood stars like Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha, Farhan Akhtar, among others. They, however, got trolled massively as netizens asked if she had won the ‘gold medal’ or ‘Nobel prize’.
Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha, Anubhav Sinha and other stars responded by highlighting the ‘hell’ she went through, how her incarceration had fulfilled the ‘egos’ of those seeking ‘justice for Sushant’ for their ‘agendas’, apart from words like ‘finally’.
Sources had said that the AIIMS panel has concurred with the opinion of the Mumbai hospital that carried out the autopsy. The Mumbai hospital’s autopsy had found “asphyxia due to hanging” as the cause of death. Sources added that circumstantial evidence also suggests that it was a case of suicide and not murder.
Sources have also told NDTV that it is not just the AIIMS medico-legal opinion, but also the Central Forensic Lab’s opinion has ruled out any foul play in the death of the actor.
The demand for a fresh medical board comes on a day when actor Rhea Chakraborty, arrested over drugs-related charges in the Sushant Singh Rajput investigation, was granted bail by the Bombay High Court.
