Actress Rhea Chakraborty‘s bail plea will be heard by the Bombay High Court tomorrow and she has alleged a witch-hunt against her by the Narcotics Control Bureau and other agencies. She has also said in her bail plea that Sushant Singh Rajput took advantage of those close to him to sustain his drugs habit.
NCB has described her as “an active member of a drug syndicate” and thus her judicial custody was yesterday extended to October 6. In her bail plea, Rhea has stated that Sushant was the only consumer of drugs and had he been alive, he would have been charged for consumption of small quantities, which is a bailable offence having punishment of a term of imprisonment upto one year. She argues that it wasn’t fair that the one consuming would receive a maximum punishment of up to one year jail, while she, who had only paid for them, would be subjected to up to 20 years in jail.
Rhea also said that SSR “used her, her brother Showik and members of his household staff to facilitate his own drug habit while ensuring that he did not leave a paper trail of his own in the form of any electronic evidence whatsoever”. She also said that it is “unfortunate that Sushant Singh Rajput took advantage of those closest to him to sustain his drug habit and thought it fit to expose them to the perils that would entail.” She also said that prosecution has surprisingly not disclosed a single phone call, mobile call, SMS, WhatsApp message or email of Sushant Singh Rajput as to how he procured his drugs for his own consumption.
