Actor Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on Tuesday by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with investigations into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Chakraborty had been questioned successively on Sunday and Monday by the NCB.

The agency had arrested her brother Showik a few days ago. Agency officials had said he had revealed the names of people he bought marijuana from and paid money to. The NCB case is that Showik had procured marijuana through 3 drug-peddlers, who had been arrested earlier, and gave them to Chakraborty who passed them onto Rajput who consumed them.

Unnamed NCB officials had told media that they would confront Chakraborty with facts that came to light in Showik’s interrogation. Yesterday, Mumbai Police had registered a case against Rajput’s sisters and a Delhi doctor for illegally prescribing psychotropic drugs for Rajput without physical diagnosis. The complaint had been made by Rhea Chakraborty who had also said the prescription was a forgery.

Rajput had died by suicide on June 14 at his flat. While Mumbai Police had closed the death case citing it to be a suicide, the deceased actor’s father had filed a FIR in Patna naming Rhea Chakraborty as the main accused. The father had alleged that she drove Rajput to taking his life. With Bihar and Maharashtra exchanging harsh words, the Supreme Court had to intervene and task the Central Bureau of Investigation with the probe.

Three Central agencies – the CBI, the Enforcement Directorate, the NCB – are probing various angles into the case, with the NCB tracking the movement of illegal drugs and the procurement of it for Rajput.

The NCB has also arrested Samuel Miranda, Rajput’s manager, for a similar charge. The controversy and the role of some parts of the TV media in the aggressive coverage of the case, verging on voyeurism and worse, has been the hot topic of social media outrage over several weeks. The wall-to-wall Rajput death coverage has left the media no room to question the Centre on the more important subjects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the governmental response to it and the economy which has taken a turn for the deep red.

Patna: Bulldozers knock down 70 houses in Rajiv Nagar, clash between police and public

In Rajiv Nagar, 70 houses were demolished by bulldozers. The local people clashed with the police administration due to the order of demolishing 70 illegal houses.

According to the reports, when police and anti-riot force started moving bulldozers on the houses, the residents and the local people also stood up with bricks and stones in their hands.

The reason for the displeasure of the local people is that the CO and government employees of the area took no action when the houses were being built and the area was being settled.

One of the locals said, “when the houses are already built, then why the bulldozer is being run by the administration to remove them.”

It has been clearly said by the Minister of Revenue and Land Reform, Ramsurat Rai that the government is not in a mood to be soft on the encroachers. So, on June 3, the administration reached Rajiv Nagar with about one and a half dozen JCB machines to demolish the illegal constructions in Rajiv Nagar of Patna (Bihar).

The local people were seen clashing with the administration to save the shelter. They also attacked the police and the anti-riot force with bricks and stones.

During this, the condition of the people, whose houses were broken, was deteriorated. People who had built houses with hard-earned money were seen getting helpless.
