Months after it was reported that actress Rhea Chakraborty had named Sara Ali Khan in a statement to the Narcotics Control Bureau over alleged drug use, it has now been confirmed by Zee News.

The media outlet has gained access to the Rhea’s chargesheet in connection to late actor and boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput drugs case.

Sara Ali Khan was summoned by the NCB in 2020 following Rhea's confession of using substance with her. Not to mention, Khan was also rumoured to have dated Sushant for a brief period during her debut film “Kedarnath”.

Her statement in the chargesheet reads as follows:

There was conversation related to drugs, which she was suggesting as a remedy for a hangover. She was talking about Ice-cream and marijuana that she uses, as an offering to me for pain relief. This was just a text that never took place in person.

Sara used to have rolled ‘doobies’ with her. Doobies are marijuana joints. On a few instances I have smoked the same with her. She used to provide me with the ‘doobie'.

In chat of June 6, 2017, you have shown me record and there is a conversation about vodka and drugs in this char. She (Sara) is offering to bring vodka and marijuana (as referred to as drugs) to my place. I have not received any such vodka or drugs from her on that day.

Sushant passed away on June 14 last year. He was found hanging in his flat.

The NCB began its investigation after the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which was probing money laundering charges, shared social media chats retrieved from Rhea Chakraborty's mobile phone hinting at use of banned drugs.

Rhea was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau on September 8 as part of the probe, and granted bail after a month on October 7.
