The Bombay High Court on Wednesday suspended its hearings scheduled for the day, including all virtual hearings, in view of the heavy rainfall in Mumbai and its suburbs.

The bail pleas filed by actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik, both arrested in a drugs case related to the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, were to be heard on Wednesday by a single bench of Justice Sarang Kotwal through video-conferencing.

According to Times of India, Rhea had filed for bail yesterday after her 14-day long judicial custody ended.

Besides, a division bench led by Justice S J Kathawalla was scheduled to hear actress Kangana Ranaut's plea against the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation over the demolition of a part of her bungalow in Pali Hill area in Mumbai.

As per the communication issued by the high court registrar, these cases and other matters scheduled during the day will be taken up by the benches concerned on Thursday.

Heavy showers overnight and early Wednesday morning caused water-logging at many places in Mumbai, disrupting rail and road traffic, officials said. The metropolitan’s municipal commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal asked all offices and establishments, barring essential services, to be shut on Wednesday due to the downpour and IMD's forecast of “heavy to very heavy rains” in the city.
