After Rhea Chakraborty's arrest, the fans of late Sushant Singh Rajput took a sigh of relief. The Bollywood actress was arrested by NCB after a tough three-days of grilling to unravel the nexus of drugs in the film industry, officials said. "Rhea has been arrested and due process of informing the family has been completed," said deputy director of NCB, KPS Malhotra. She was taken to a public hospital here for medical check-up and COVID-19 tests soon after her arrest. As soon as the news of her arrest came, a lot of people took to Twitter and reacted to the same by using the hashtag #SorryBabu. For the unversed, on 15th June, Rhea Chakraborty went to the mortuary to see Sushant's body after which she said 'sorry babu' after looking at his corpse. This is the reason why the phrase has been trending.

Before entering the vehicle along with NCB officials, Rhea waved at the assembled media persons at the anti-drug agency's office in south Mumbai.
