SSR Case: Rhea Chakraborty ready for arrest, says lawyer
Mumbai : Actress Rhea Chakraborty is ready for arrest, said her lawyer after she visited the NCB office on Sunday for further questioning in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The Central agency, which stepped into the case after 59 grams of curated marijuana was found from two alleged drug peddlers, Abbas Lakhani and Karan Arora, has already arrested her brother.
"Rhea Chakraborty is ready for arrest as this is a witch hunt and if loving some one is a crime, she will face the consequences of her love. Being innocent, She has not approached any court for anticipatory bail in all the cases foisted by Bihar Police now with CBI, ED and NCB," her lawyer, Satish Maneshinde said in a statement this morning.
NCB had arrested Showik on Friday along with Sushant Singh Rajput's business partner Samuel Miranda and charged them with anti-drug law. The two men have been sent into the agency's custody till Wednesday.
No drugs have been found on Showik Chakraborty yet. The NCB's case hinges on the marijuana found on the alleged drug peddlers, who had links with Sushant Singh Rajput.
Meanwhile, Rhea Chakraborty and her family has claimed that a "simple, a middle class family" is being targeted as a part of a witch-hunt and the claims are being verified by the media.
After Showik Chakraborty's arrest, his father had said that he was now expecting the arrest of his daughter.
"Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I'm sure next on the line is my daughter and I don't know who is next thereafter. You have effectively demolished a middle class family. But of course, for the sake of justice everything is justified. Jai hind," read the statement from Lt Col Indrajit Chakraborty (Retd), who has also been questioned by the CBI for days.
