The Bombay High Court on Wednesday granted conditional bail of Rs1 lakh to Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty, her lawyer Satish Maneshinde said in Mumbai.
Justice S.V. Kotwal, who had completed the hearing in her bail application last week and kept his ruling in reserve, pronounced the order this morning.
Arrested on September 9 by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a drug related case, Rhea has spent 28 days in custody till date. She was sent to extended judicial custody by a Special NDPS Court till October 20 on Tuesday.
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."
"The arrest and custody of Rhea was totally unwarranted and beyond the reach of law. The hounding and witch hunt by three Central agencies -- the CBI, ED and NCB -- of Rhea should come to an end. We remain committed to the truth. 'Satya Meva Jayate'," said Maneshinde.
