Special NDPS Court today extended the judicial custody of Rhea Chakraborty, Showik Chakraborty and other accused arrested by the NCB till 20 October, special public prosecutor Atul Sarpande said.
The duo was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with a drugs probe related to actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case last month.
The special court had earlier rejected the bail pleas of the actress and her brother.
They then moved the Bombay High Court to seek bail. The High Court has reserved its order on their pleas.
Strongly opposing the bail pleas field by actor Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, and other co-accused in a drug case, the NCB told the Bombay High Court that a strong message needed to be sent out to the society, especially youngsters, to ensure they did not consume drugs.
