Sushant was found dead at his home in Bandra on June 14, 2020. The CBI is investigating the matter regarding his death. After that, the Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Bureau also conducted separate investigations into the case. Rhea, Sushant’s girlfriend at the time, was arrested in the case in September 2020 and released on bail by the Bombay Supreme Court nearly a month later. Showik and several others are also being charged as accused in the case of alleged consumption, possession and financing of drugs. Most of them are out on bail.

According to the report, the prosecutor has proposed to the court to charge Rhea and Showik for using narcotics and also for obtaining and paying for such drugs for Sushant. The special prosecutor said the court would draft charges against all suspects. However, it could not be done because a few of the accused had filed for resignation.

The court has said the charges will not be filed until the discharge proceedings have been decided, he said. Rhea and Showik, along with the other suspects, were present in court on Wednesday. Special Judge VG Raghuwanshi has placed the case in court on July 12.

Recently, on the second anniversary of Sushant’s death, Rhea paid tribute to him on Instagram along with throwback photos. “Miss you every day…”, she wrote. In the first photo, Rhea was pouting and Sushant was smiling and in the next photo, Rhea was smiling at Sushant as he sat on the grass. In another photo, Rhea gave Sushant a kiss on the cheek. The last photo showed Sushant carrying Rhea in his arms as they enjoyed the rain.
