Breaking silence over the entire controversy, Rhea Chakraborty’s father Indrajit Chakraborty’s shared with India Today in a statement, congratulating India, stating that his son is arrested and his daughter could be next in line. He also added that a middle class family has been effectively demolished and that for the sake of justice, everything is justified. Rhea’s father Lt Col (retd) Indrajit Chakraborty, was also questioned by the NCB. Rhea Chakraborty has also been summoned by the NCB to join the investigation and is likely to appear for questioning on Sunday.
Arguing on behalf of Showik Chakraborty before Metropolitan Magistrate Joshi, advocate Satish Maneshinde had stated, “Both Showik and Rhea Chakraborty have never consumed Narcotic / Psychotropic Drugs. They are both ready and willing to take a blood and drug test. Sushant Singh Rajput as a matter of fact was consuming drugs much before Rhea came in his life. Rhea knows that he was consuming drugs even on the sets of ‘Kedarnath’ when it was being shot in 2016-2017. It is not an addiction that he acquired after Rhea came in his life. He was consuming drugs even against medical advise. It is a case of a person who consumed it against medical advise and requests from Rhea. He enjoyed it in his life time and died. Instead Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda are being prosecuted after his death which is unwarranted.”
