Rhea had confessed to procuring drugs.
The girlfriend of the late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Rhea Chakraborty who is also a prime suspect in Sushant’s death case has accused him of forcing her to take drugs.
The ongoing death investigation has bought many shocking revelations to light. Currently, the actress is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
Sushant’s death case is being investigated by some of the country’s most influential investigation agencies.
These include the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
The drugs angle in the case has revealed many allegations concerning Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty and many more.
Recently, Showik Chakraborty was arrested by the NCB on 4 September 2020.
Officials searched his Mumbai residence where he lives with his sister. They seized his laptop and also drew links between him and alleged drug dealer, Zaid Vilatra.
Speaking about the search, an official said:
“The searches were conducted under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
“It’s just a procedural matter. That is what we are following.”
Rhea’s involvement in drugs came to attention when her WhatsApp conversations were accessed by officials.
Despite this finding, Rhea Chakraborty had strongly denied consuming drugs.
However, according to a Times Now report, the actress has accused Sushant Singh Rajput of forcing her to consume drugs.
This alleged revelation was made during her interrogation by the NBC.
There is no doubt that her contradiction certainly raises alarms concerning the reliability of her statement.
In the morning of Tuesday, 8 September 2020, Rhea Chakraborty was spotted outside the NCB office in Mumbai.
This was reportedly Rhea’s third consecutive day of interrogation. The report further suggested that the actress made other shocking revelations.
