EXCLUSIVE: Sushant Singh Rajput's lawyer on Rhea's bail: Drug case isn't as big as her administering it to him

After almost a month long stay in jail, Rhea Chakraborty's bail plea has been granted. The actress was jailed after her interrogation with the NCB, that spanned over around a week. She will be walking out of jail today and her lawyer has already reacted to the news. This happened following her interrogation where it was revealed that Rhea did consume drugs and other narcotic substances. 

Rhea's lawyer shared, "We are delighted by the order. 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, Enforcement Directorate and the Narcotics Control Bureau should come to an end. We remain committed to truth." 

We reached out to Sushant Singh Rajput's lawyer Vikas Singh, who has also been representing the late actor's family in the case. He tells us, "I had said in the very beginning that the Narcotics case against Rhea is not very strong. As there was minimal recovery of the drug as the core of the NDPS act is recovery of drugs. The more the quantity the bigger punishment. The drug angle is not a big case as far as Rhea is concerned." He further reasons. "Rhea doing drugs isn't a big finding. The bigger case would be to find out if she was administering any drugs to Sushant, with or without his knowledge. If she also did it with his knowledge, then what needs to be seen is whether she informed the doctors who were treating him at that point. Either way, she had to intimate the doctors and that could be a very big angle in the whole case." 

The drug angle is not a big case as far as Rhea is concerned.

Govt needed 3 topmost central investigating agencies in India to determine the cause of Sushant's death, and ultimately both CBI and AIIMS comes out to the same conclusion drawn earlier by Mumbai Police. I don't know what will make this Rajput family Happy? first they wanted CBI, instead got 3, means buy 1 get 2 free, still these investigation agencies couldn't find any other evidence other than the drugs parties and supply, which Sushant I am sure started much earlier than what family is making us believe as if Rhea started administering it to Sushant, that's pure nonsense. I agree what Rhea was doing to get Sushant's loyalty and off course his money, is morally wrong and straight illegal, punishable offense and for that she must be punished, but holding her responsible for Sushant's suicide is something hard to prove in the court. I hope family just accept AIIMS and CBI's conclusion and move on, they also need to do some retrospection on what went wrong with their own attitude and behavior towards Sushant, which kind of made him more close to Rhea? This fAKE FIR in Patna is pure nonsense and political in nature and that's the reason Maharashtra GOvt rightly opposed it in the Supreme Court . I would urge people to simply move on from this case and focus on their real life issues like the rising COVID 19 cases and Govt's Response to this deadly pandemic, rising youth unemployment and slowing Economy. Media houses like TimesNOw and Republic are meant to divert peoples attenti

The fortress around Rhea should crumbled down with no support either from the police or political parties, then only SSR will get true justice. Did you people watched her coming out of bycula jail surrounded by fortress of cops....no other inmates will get such type of escort and even her car was covered with the news paper, tinted glass.

I hope youth fans realize this and focus their energy on the issues facing population, not something like a Suicide and make it like a national issue. It was obvious the channel and opportunist liar who peddle the fAKE murder story has their own agenda against Maharashtra Govt. Hope this Govt takes stringent action against this channel and punish them with applicable laws, this is an example of pure BAD journalism.

SSR family must be interrogated. They are vindictive on Rhea .. pure jealous that SSR chose her and was close to her...Rhea should sue them for creating false narratives on her. And for the dumb head who says SSR was happy with Ankita.. if he was happy he would not ha e left her.. he was a troubled man who could not be fixated and be steady at one thing. And that’s is fine. It is his business and his life. But blaming the girl by the family after his demise by lying and fabricating false narratives was out of pure vindictiveness. Father lit the fire and Shwetha Singh, republic TV fueled the fire. Thry all must be made accountable for their conniving nature

Sushant's family never liked Rhea and the reason was she was not from a rich family to give dowry. In Bihar doctors and engineers takes dowry upto 2-3 cr. Probably Sushant's family thought that their brother is next Amitabh bachan in making so they deserve someone like Ambaani's daughter. They were happy when he dated a Richie Sara but luckily Sara realized this family is not good so she dumped them on time.

Rhea was not administering drugs to Raja Beta Sushant. He was a 35 years old man and he loved taking drugs. There is no reason for Shradha Kapoor to lie and she is a far more decent human being than Sushant as she is with the same guy for years and not changing girls every year.

Shraddha was with Rohan since 2018 before that Farhan and Aditya Roy Kapur. Probably had boyfriends in college and before her acting debut so what gives you the right to character assassinate and shame Sushant! He was with 1 person only in a monogamous relationship unlike many other cheaters in TV and bollywood!

Learn Indian law before commenting senselessly. There is absolute no evidence against Rhea from all the agencies. These agencies got involved after SSR's family lawyer requested the court. Now he will keep demanding investigation until he gets verdict of his choice. This is utter nonsense.

Anonymous 3 months ago

The judge released her because there was nothing against her. SSR justice campaign has turned upside down with him being declared a drug addict who used his girlfriend & friends to procure drugs. All Rhea did was get drugs for her partner who was an addict. That doesn't make her a supplier or a peddler. It isn't extraordinary for a women to do things for their partners or husbands. His family tarnished his image. SSR family got all agencies to aim at Rhea & started firing. SSR's family lawyer is demanding one investigation after another, one forensic team after another UNTIL Rhea is found guilty.

It appears as if the family thinks Sushant was a Sweet bay boy and needed to feed drugs, what nonsense he made some really bad choices in his life, spent his hard earned money on these stupid girls like Rhea and Sarah, who knows how many others prior? Ultimately these girls used him for their own luxury and comfort and betrayed him when he needed their support. His downfall started when he got into bad company and his own Jija said that in one of the WhatsApp family chats came into public domain. Hope now this case is settled and people move on with their life, enough of Republic channels and dark internet conspiracy theories peddle by fAke media and fake politicians.
