A special court has ordered the unfreezing of actress Rhea Chakraborty’s bank accounts and the return of her electronic gadgets over a year after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested her in connection with the drug case related to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death.

The NCB also arrested her brother and over two dozen others, including alleged drug peddlers, last year in the same case, Hindustan Times reported.

In her first application regarding the unfreezing of her bank accounts, Rhea Chakraborty said NCB froze them without any reason and added the action was unjust and caused prejudice to her. 

Special public prosecutor Atul Sarpande, who represented NCB, said the financial investigation in the case was going on. He added if the accounts are unfrozen, the investigation could be hampered.

The court separately ordered that the electronic gadgets be returned after due verification and identification after executing a bond of ₹1 lakh.

Rajput was found dead at his apartment in Mumbai on June 14, 2020. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is separately probing abetment to suicide charges against Rhea Chakraborty.

Rajput’s family has accused her of allegedly abetting his suicide.

Rajput’s father, KK Singh, lodged a complaint with the Patna Police against Chakraborty, her parents, and her brother, Showik, last year.
