Challenging the Bombay High Court order which granted bail to actress Rhea Chakraborty, over her arrest on drug-related charges in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has moved the Supreme Court. 

The plea shall be heard on March 18 by a bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde and Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.

On October 7, last year the Bombay High Court had granted bail to the actress and directed her to deposit a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh.

It had however rejected the bail plea of her brother Showik Chakraborty, who is also an accused in the case, and an alleged drug peddler Abdel Basit Parihar.

Rhea, her brother and the other accused were arrested in September last year by the NCB in connection with its probe into the drugs angle related to the case of Rajput's death.

While granting bail to Rhea Chakraborty and two others, the high court had directed them to deposit their passports with the NCB and not to leave the country without the permission of the special NDPS court.

It had asked Rhea to deposit a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and directed her to visit the NCB office at 11 am on the first day of every month for the next six months.

All those who have been granted bail, including Rhea, will also have to seek permission from the NCB's investigating officer to go out of Mumbai, the court had said.

Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14 last year.
