The HC has permitted Rhea to furnish a cash bail of Rs 1 lakh within a month and to furnish sureties within that time. She has to regularly report to the nearest police station and has to surrender her passport. Justice Kotwal said he has imposed sufficiently stringent conditions on bail.
Soon after bail was granted, Satish Maneshinde, lawyer representing Rhea Chakraborty quoted “We are Delighted by the Order of the Hon’ble Bombay High Court granting bail to Rhea Chakraborty. Truth and Justice have prevailed and ultimately the submissions on facts and law have been accepted by Justice Sarang V Kotwal. The arrest and custody of Rhea was totally unwarranted and beyond the reach of law. The hounding and witch hunt by three central agencies .. the CBI , ED and NCB of Rhea should come to and end . We remain committed to Truth. Satya Meva Jayate”

You cannot endanger your life, the life of that person or normal people walking on the roads. It’s an offence. We will take stern action, not only against the driver but against the person instigating, instructing the person to do such a chase,” Sangram Singh Nishandar, Mumbai Police Deputy Commissioner, told reporters.
