Rhea Chakraborty Allowed To Travel Abroad For IIFA Awards Show

OB Bureau

Mumbai:  Remember Rhea Chakraborty, who was witch-hunted in a drugs case related to actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death in 2020? A special court in Mumbai on Wednesday permitted the actress to travel to Abu Dhabi for four days to attend the IIFA awards show.

Special Judge AA Joglekar directed the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), the prosecuting agency, to hand over Ms Chakraborty’s passport to her, and permitted her to travel to Abu Dhabi from June 2 to 5, news agency PTI reported.

The court directed her to appear before the Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi daily to mark her attendance, submit her itinerary to the NCB and resurrender her passport to the NCB once she returns to India, the report added.

“The applicant is also directed to furnish additional cash security of ₹ 1 lakh with the registry of this court,” the special court said in its order.

Chakraborty’s advocate Nikhil Maneshinde told the court that the actress has been invited by the International Indian Film Academy’s (IIFA) director to walk the green carpet, present an award and also host an interaction.

The criminal prosecution has affected Ms Chakraborty’s acting career and she has suffered setbacks and faced significant financial losses. Such opportunities are important for her prospects in the industry, Maneshinde said.

Chakraborty was arrested in the case in September 2020. She was granted bail by the Bombay High Court almost a month after her arrest.
