Actress Rhea Chakraborty has been released from judicial custody after more than a month. Mumbai High Court granted bail to Rhea after declaring that there is no concrete evidence linking Rhea to the drug probe following Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case.
Amidst the ongoing controversy around actor Sushant’s death, Rhea has recently pressed charges against Sushant’s sisters Meetu and Priyanka Singh. Following this complaint, Rhea’s lawyer has now revealed why Rhea left the house on 8th June, days before Sushant’s demise, a question that left the entire country curious.
According to Mumbai Mirror, Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde released an official statement which reads that “The FIR filed by Rhea Chakraborty was for a specific offense of having forged a prescription and administered illegally, medicines which were already communicated to Sushant Singh Rajput by Priyanka Singh in her messages on 8th June 2020. Those medicines were administered more so when the family was aware that SSR was addicted to Drugs and under treatment at Mumbai.”
Revealing why Rhea left the house, the statement suggests that 5 doctors consulted by Sushant had advised him to abstain from using narcotics. When the actor refused to follow this advice, Rhea left the house.
The investigation regarding Sushant’s death has been at the center of multiple controversies since June 2020. The matter is being investigated by three investigating agencies currently.
