Actor Rhea Chakraborty will stay in prison until October 6, a court in Mumbai ruled today as her previous 14-day judicial custody ended.
Rhea is currently imprisoned at the Byculla Women's prison facility.
She and her brother Showik were arrested earlier this month on charges of arranging drugs for late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who died in June.
Here are more details on this.
Rhea and her brother have now requested bail from the Bombay High Court, which will take up the matter tomorrow.
Both have been accused of procuring banned substances such as marijuana in drug investigations linked to Sushant's death.
Apart from them, two employees of Sushant and a number of alleged drug peddlers have also been nabbed in this case.
Notably, Rhea, her brother, and the other accused have been booked under the Sections 8(c), 20(b)(ii), 22, 27A, 28, and 29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.
Sushant was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai's Bandra area on June 14.
Mumbai cops had said it was suicide and that the actor had been suffering from clinical depression.
Later, in July, Sushant's family accused Rhea of mental harassment, money laundering, and abetment to suicide.
Apart from the NCB, the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate are also probing the matter.
Further, the NCB today questioned actor Deepika Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash and talent manager Jaya Saha. Jaya was questioned on Monday as well.
It has been reported that Deepika's name surfaced from certain WhatsApp chats recovered from Jaya's phone during the investigation.
In the chats, Deepika and others had talked about procuring "maal" and "hash."
Meanwhile, Sushant's manager Shruti Modi has also been questioned.
According to various reports, actors Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh could be called by the NCB for questioning this week.
Meanwhile, fashion designer Simone Khambatta may also be called for interrogation. Their names had come up during the questioning of Rhea.
Rhea, who had been dating Sushant for a year before his death, was arrested on September 8.
