Rhea Chakraborty’s Lawyer Accuses Sushant Singh Rajput, Says He Was The Only Drug Consumer
Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on September 8 by the Narcotics Control Bureau in the drug peddling case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. After the arrest, Rhea’s bail application rejected by magistrate and session court and yesterday she moved to the high court with her bail application. Reportedly, she filed a 47-page long application. Yesterday, the HC held its hearing in the plea and some details of the arguments made in the court have come to fore
According to a report published in Live Law India, Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer, Satish Manshinde claimed in the court that it was only Sushant Singh Rajput who used to consume drugs and not his client when they were living together. He even stated that Sushant used to consume drugs prior to his relationship with Rhea. Reportedly, he said, “It is not that Sushant Singh Rajput got into drugs after Rhea came into his life. His co-stars Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor appear to have given statements Sushant Singh Rajput was consuming drugs much prior to 2019.”
He further argued that if Sushant was alive, he would be the one facing punishment. “Had Sushant Singh Rajput been alive today, he would have been punished under Section 20. Sushant would have then claimed the immunity of rehabilitation and got away with punishment for small quantities,” stated the lawyer. He further said to have argued that there is no proof that determines that Rhea financed any illicit drug purchase.
