Rhea Chakraborty says ‘Sushant used me and my brother Showik to facilitate his drug habit’

Rhea Chakraborty, in her second bail plea, has alleged that she was used to by Sushant to facilitate his drug needs.


Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on 9th September on drug charges linked to the investigation into the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. The bail requests of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik will be heard tomorrow by the Bombay High Court.

According to recent reports by NDTV, in her plea, Rhea alleges that Sushant would’ve been “arrested” if he were alive today. He used to take drugs and order his staff to procure them. She argues that it is “preposterous” that while the “consumer of drugs” would receive a maximum punishment of up to one year jail, she would, having paid for the drugs on a few occasions, would be subjected to up to 20 years in jail.

In her plea, the actor further mentions that “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 says that based on information in the public domain, Sushant Singh Rajput had asked his cook, Neeraj, “to make ganja joints/rolls/doobies and place them in his bedroom” three days before his death. She said Neeraj had told the CBI and Mumbai Police that he had prepared the joints and placed them in a box in his bedroom and “thereafter when the actor was found dead, he verified from the box that all the joints/doobies had been consumed and the entire box was empty”.


The petition says Sushant Singh Rajput was “in the regular habit of smoking cigarettes with ganja” since before they met, a habit he allegedly got into during the shoot of his movie “Kedarnath”. The actor says that “Apart from allegedly coordinating the purchase of drugs and occasionally paying for the said purchase, there is no other allegation, yet the prosecution is terming her alleged acts as ‘financing illicit traffic’,”.
