Netizens have welcomed the Indian Narcotics Control Bureau's (NCB) move to approach the Supreme Court to challenge a verdict by the Bombay High Court to grant bail to Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty.
The former girlfriend of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was arrested and jailed for almost a month last year for allegedly providing drugs to Sushant and being "an active member of a drugs syndicate".
Hailing the NCB's decision, netizens have called for a proper investigation into the case, especially after the anti-drug agency named 33 people, including Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty, in a chargesheet filed this month before a special court in Mumbai.
If they win the case in the Supreme Court then Rhea will go back to jail.— Suhasini Dhondiyal🔥👸🇮🇳❤ (@TheSuhasini) March 16, 2021

The Supreme Court of India will hear arguments in the case on 18 March.
Three federal agencies, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED), and Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), are investigating Sushant Singh Rajput's death. The actor was found hanging in his Mumbai flat and his death has officially been ruled a suicide.
So far, several Bollywood celebrities as well as Sushant's family and friends have been questioned in connection with his death and in relation to the drug probe. Actress Rhea Chakraborty was also arrested by the NCB. However, in the absence of substantial evidence, Chakraborty was released by on bail.
