While Rhea Chakraborty awaits her fate in the ongoing Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigation in the ongoing Bollywood drugs probe, the actress has made some serious allegations about Sushant Singh Rajput, who she was reportedly dating.
The investigation came to light after Rajput’s demise in June. Now, the actress has through her lawyer alleged a witch-hunt against her by the NCB. She was arrested on 9th September after being described by the bureau as “an active member of a drug syndicate”. Chakraborty has denied ever consuming drugs.
In her bail plea, Chakraborty said, “Sushant Singh Rajput was the only consumer of drugs and that he was directing his staff members to procure his drugs”. She said that “if the late actor were alive today, he would have been charged for the consumption of small quantities, which is a bailable offence having punishment of a term of imprisonment upto one year.”
NDTV reports the actress saying that Rajput “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 added, “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”.
The plea further stated that Rajput asked his cook Neeraj “to make ganja joints/rolls/doobies and place them in his bedroom” three days before his death.
She added, “Therefore it is clear from the evidence collected by investigative agencies that it was only late Sushant Singh Rajput who was the consumer of drugs and who was in the habit of using those around him to facilitate his drug habit.”
