As per a news report by TOI, Showik Chakraborty's lawyer Satish Maneshinde has stated in his statement as he argued of the former's bail in court. The lawyer states that the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput had consumed drugs even before he had met Rhea Chakraborty. He further goes on to add that Sushant had consumed drugs against the medical advice given to him. The news report further states the lawyer saying that the late star wanted to take some 'illegal and unwarranted prescription' which was sent to Sushant by his sister Priyanka. Lawyer Satish Maneshinde further argues in his statement that Sushant never took any online consultation with the doctor who gave the prescription and that the late actor never met him as well. 

The lawyer also reportedly claims that both Rhea and Showik have never taken any Narcotic/Psychotropic drugs and that the duo is ready to undergo a medical examination. Showik Chakraborty's lawyer further makes another shocking revelation that Sushant Singh Rajput also consumed drugs while he was filming Kedarnath during the period 2016-2017. He further states that in no way did the late actor start taking drugs after meeting Rhea Chakraborty. The news further states lawyer Satish Maneshinde saying that Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda are arrested after the death of Sushant and calls the arrest 'unwarranted.' 

Previously, it was reported that Showik was arrested by the NCB which is probing the drug angle in the late star Sushant Singh Rajput's case. Lawyer Satish Maneshinde reportedly says that other than the WhatsApp messages there is no other proof found, and also has to be proved during the trial. He adds that procuring 'Ganja' is a punishable offense under section 20 (b) (ii)(A) is bailable under 28 and 29 of NDPS Act. The section 27A is not applicable. The lawyer also states that ED and CBI did not find any incriminating proof of abetment or siphoning money, not even of Rs 15 crores by Rhea or her family and calls the probes by multiple agencies a witch-hunt.

It's quite obvious SSR was taking something - just watch his most recent interviews. He couldn't sit still and was quite hyper. Just compare to his earlier interviews and you'll see for yourself. But regardless - who cares if he (or anyone else) does drugs - it's his problem. And what is the connection to his death??? So far, the investigation hasn't revealed anything (publicly) about it.

My brother in law is the army. Rhea's dad is a disgrace to the indian army - raising two drug addicts & being a drug addict parent isn't what army families aspire to be nor their way of life. Rhea is a manipulative,gold digger, shameless woman with no self respect. Rhea's relationship with sushant was only 1+ yr old & she was using her debit, credit card & changing his pin numbers. Which girlfriend does that? Forget girlfriends, which wives changes pin numbers of their husband's debit cards? What kind of morality & character were her parents instilling in rhea & her brother - go and use all the money from your 1 yr old boyfriend & let your brother used it too ?...

Indians are angry whenever injustice happens with anyone and police refuses to file FIR and investigate or they see criminals getting away, they also do it for people who are not famous. This time they are angry because time and again high profile unnatural deaths have been passed off as suicides and cases have been closed even when there is a high suspicion that it could be murder.

To all the people directing their anger towards the family, before you start calling those who do not agree with you "sold out" or "pr stunt", etc, it is worth thinking about why you feel that rage. Many of you may have lost your jobs, have not met your families or friends in a long while, or have faced unfortunate pay cuts, have. Things that one has no explanation for. We are living, working, existing, teaching our kids at home during a pandemic. None of this is easy for any one of us. Please find healthier outlets towards your anger and wait till investigations are complete. The man in question is long gone and has left behind a very complicated can of worms. Please let the law take its course don't be a part of this hate brigade.

Sushant's sisters have families, kids and their own lives and are fighting for justice. You are obviously an insider but what right do you have to say we don't have a right to be angry and livid about his death and WHY this even happened in the first place!

Why are you acting and claiming we have no right to be angry about his death just because you don't give a damn about him? His family members also have to work and take care of their kids in addition to fighting for his justice. But for you Bollywood's image and reputation and the can of worms opened is more worrisome for you than his death! Speaks volumes about you and your character!

Are you trying to say your problems are bigger or more important than someone losing their lives. You insiders don't even have the spine to address him by name and inmediately ask for a fair investigation but all you care about is the can of worns opened and your pathetic image. He shouldn't have dated and let the wrong people into his lives but why and how did he die??? He had so much more to give!

Indians have currently concentrated all their personal anger, hatred & frustration on Rhea & her family because they find it easy to target someone rather than face their own problems head-on. Hope they will concentrate on the rising COVID cases and lowering GDP after this saga is over.

So say whatever you wish against a person who is not here to defend himself. Most of us are not going to ever accept that SSR was a villain who hung himself and chovik and reah were poor little innocent angels. They were guilty as sin BEFORE they met SSR. They were dealing in drugs hence despite of not being any known name in the Bollywood Reah was still protected and defended by actors and their puppet media like pink villa.

Why was rhea giving him prescription drugs if she knew he was on drugs.... And she could have alerted his family via the many helpers he has in his house even if she was not talking to them.... She had her own agenda that's y she did not alert his family....

Every small thing Ssr did made public news.... Even if he did not do anything like the #metoo made news.... Certain section of the media was hell bent on tarnishing his image... Now u tell me if Ssr was doing drugs wouldn't that have made the news... Funny enough when he was alive they could not falsely accuse him of doing drugs bec Ssr would have asked for blood test to prove his innocence like how he put up the whatsapp msgs during the #metoo to prove himself

If rhea knew he was doing drugs why was she still giving him prescription drugs.... I'm sure she would have told the Dr she was taking him to that he is a drug addict . So shouldn't the Dr and Rhea be arrested for giving him prescription drugs knowing he is doing drugs

Even if that is the case with sushant who tried to - isolate him from family and friends Including not answering his father when he wished to visit his son. - slip things into his drink without his knowledge - encourage him to stay in his room and sleep more than usual. - control his finances/ financial decision making - control staff around him which including wiping information from all electronic devices. - threaten to expose his medical condition. Generally create an atmosphere which exacerbated his condition to the point of a diagnosis of Bi-polar.

Sure I would like to be proud of our central agencies also, but NCB custodial interrogation is unnecessary when the witness are co-operating. Are they doing this to get their few days of fame? Are they doing this to please some very high up in the government? According 2018 statistics, there were over three crore people that smoke weed in India. Out of three crore people NCB wants to focus on two individuals? Until 1985 smoking week is legal in India! Over 100 tons of weed was consumed last year! NCB is going after 59 grams of weed in this case? People in slums and youth (60%) have highest consumption. Is NCB put swaths of slum people and youth in Jail? The answer is no. Did you hear any one getting arresting for smoking weed in India? The answer is NO. It's time put end to this NCB witch hunt of the people that took good care of Sushant!

Sushant has died, so people are making him a saint. If he was alive they would have trolled and abused him. Obviously the must have been on drugs. It's just that the audience are not accepting this truth and are in denial. Even if it's proven they still won't believe the truth. This only happens here in India.
