However, Chakraborty had later “retracted her confession” to the NCB. She claimed to have been “coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions.” Last week, Rakul Preet Singh appealed to the Delhi HC against her media trial in the SSR-drug probe. Advocate Aman Hingorani, submitted a plea on Singh’s behalf to the court, which said that media reports concerning the actress violate I&B Ministry guidelines.
So far, the police have arrested 16 people in this matter. Chakraborty is now in police custody till September 22, after the court rejected her bail plea earlier this month.
