In her complaint, Rhea accused Sushant's sisters and Dr Tarun Kumar of the Delhi-based Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital of forging a prescription of medicines, supposedly for anxiety, which were prohibited under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.
Rhea's neighbour told Republic TV an eyewitness had told her in June itself that Sushant had come to drop the actress home on June 13 at around 6-6:30 pm.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had launched an investigation after it received official communication from Enforcement Directorate, in which there were various chats related to drug consumption, procurement, usage and transportation in connection with Rajput's case. She would also have to deposit her passport and can not travel outside the country without the prior permission of the court.
In the present case, the Court held, no criminal case or FIR was pending against Sushant Singh Rajput. He had no apprehension of any arrest at that point of time.
Welcoming the court order, Maneshinde said, "Truth and justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Kotwal".
Advocate Satish Maneshinde, appearing for Rhea and Showik, had submitted that the investigations by NCB are without jurisdiction, as the case was registered in relation to the drug angle associated with Rajput's death and the same could be investigated by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), as per a Supreme Court order. No celebrity or role model enjoys any special privilege before the court of law. Therefore, the act on the part of the applicant can not be stretched to attract allegations of harbouring Sushant Singh Rajput, the Court said.
The judge said: "Each case will have to be decided on its own merits irrespective of the status of the accused".
It, however, said Rhea "is not part of the chain of drug dealers" and "has not forwarded the drugs allegedly procured by her to somebody else to earn monetary or other benefits". The employees of Sushant Singh Rajput were also used for that objective.
"The material at the highest shows that she has committed an offence involving contraband, but the crucial element of incurring rigours of Section 37 (for grant of bail) in respect of commercial quantity is missing", the court said.
Rhea Chakravarty has been granted bail on a personal bond of 1 lakh. "Therefore, NCB will urge the top court against the bail of Rhea Chakraborty".
