A special court here on Friday rejected the bail pleas of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, arrested by the NCB in connection with a drug-related case pertaining to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, advocate Satish Maneshinde said.

The court also rejected the bail pleas of four other accused in the case — Abdul Basit, Zaid Vilatra, Dipesh Sawant and Samuel Miranda.

All accused are currently in judicial custody.
