Big news broke on 15 October 2020 from the film industry. As per reports in…
Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case has turned out to be a mystery which doesn’t seem to be getting solved anytime sooner. The late actor’s family has named Rhea Chakraborty as the prime accused in his death case. The 28-year-old actress has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for procuring drugs for her late boyfriend.
In her recent bail plea, Rhea has alleged that Sushant took advantage of others in order to sustain his drug habit.
Earlier, Rhea was sent to 14 days judicial custody until September 22. Recently, her custody was extended till October 6. Today her bail hearing was supposed to take place in Bombay High Court but owing to heavy rainfall the hearing has been postponed for till tomorrow (September 24).
According to a report in NDTV, Rhea in her recent bail application has alleged that Sushant “took advantage of those closest to him to sustain his drug habit“. In her bail plea, Rhea said, “Sushant Singh Rajput was the only consumer of drugs and that he was directing his staff members to procure his drugs. If the late actor were alive today, he would have been charged for the consumption of small quantities, which is a bailable offence having punishment of a term of imprisonment up to one year.”
The actress went on to say that Sushant shared a strained relationship with his family and that he had a habit of ‘smoking cigarettes with ganja’. Rhea’s petition also says that the allegations levelled against her would come under the ambit of “less serious offences”.
The ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ actress’ 47-page petition further reads, “Sushant used her, her brother Showik and members of his household staff to facilitate his own drug habit while ensuring that he did not leave a paper trail of his own in the form of any electronic evidence whatsoever. It is unfortunate that Sushant Singh Rajput took advantage of those closest to him to sustain his drug habit and thought it fit to expose them to the perils that would entail.”
Currently, NCB is also interrogating Sushant’s ex-manager Shruti Modi, talent manager Jaya Saha. The agency has also summoned Madhu Mantena.
Reportedly, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Dia Mirza and Deepika Padukone too will be summoned very soon by NCB in connection with the drug-related probe.
