Indian narcotics authorities said Chakraborty, 28, was arrested in a drug case linked with the death of her boyfriend on June 14, the BBC reported.

The charges have not yet been revealed.

Chakraborty was accused by Rajput’s family of abetting his suicide – but the actress previously denied the allegations.

The actress was sent to be in judicial custody for 14 days, Asian News International reported.

She made a plea bail, but it was rejected by the court, ANI reported.

“Whatever she told was sufficient for the arrest,” Ashok Jain, Deputy Director General of the South-Western Region of NCB said.

“We have arrested her, it means we had enough,” Jain said of evidence against Chakraborty, as reported by ANI.
