More than 12,000 pages in hard copy and about 50,000 pages in digital format were submitted in court, the NCB said. The NCB had arrested Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and his brother Showik Chakraborty, and a few others under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.
