Rhea Chakraborty has filed a second request for bail after spending two weeks in jail. In her bail plea, she alleged that Sushant “took advantage of those closest to him to sustain his drug habit”.
Rhea said that Sushant “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, “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”.
Rhea claimed in her plea that “Sushant Singh Rajput was the only consumer of drugs and that he was directing his staff members to procure his drugs.”
She said that he if was alive today, he would have been charged for the consumption of drugs in small quantities, which is a bailable offence having punishment of a term of imprisonment upto one year. However, she would be subjected to up to 20 years in jail for paying for Sushant’s drugs on a few occasions.
Rhea is currently in the custody of NCB. So far, none of the investigating agencies have found any evidence against her that could prove that she killed Sushant or drove him to suicide.
