Showik Chakraborty's petition cites last month’s Supreme Court judgment, which held that statements made before NCB officers cannot be considered as confessions.
Actor Rhea Chakraborty's brother Showik has filed a fresh bail application in special NDPS court with regard to the drug probe related to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
In his bail plea, Showik has contented that no drugs have been recovered from his possession and that the Narcotics Control Bureau's evidence was merely statements made by the co-accused in the case.
The petition goes on to cite last month’s Supreme Court judgment, which held that statements made before NCB officers cannot be considered as confessions.
Showik also said that no new evidence has been brought to light after his bail applications were rejected.
The NCB had arrested actor Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty in connection with the case. After spending almost a month in Byculla jail, Rhea was granted bail by Bombay High Court on October 7.
