Commenting on Kangana’s tweet, a user stated that Rhea’s arrest is not related to the murder case, rather it is concerning drugs. The user said:
“This is no victory, SSR too consumed drugs, everybody knows that. If alive, he too would have been arrested.”
“Not saying he was a bad guy, unfortunately youth falls for drugs. If she’s found guilty in the murder case, then it’s a different story.”
