Rhea didn’t name any actor, says lawyer after Deepika, Sara, Shraddha, Rakul summoned
New Delhi : Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has stated that Rhea has not named any actor in her statement regarding the drug links in Bollywood.
Maneshinde’s statement came after the Narcotics Control Bureau [NCB] summoned Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh in relation to a drug case related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
Maneshinde said in a interview with CNNNews18, “Rhea Chakraborty has not named anybody in her statement. If NCB or anybody is making a statement that she has leaked, it is totally false. There is no evidence that suggests that Rhea Chakraborty has named anybody apart from what Sushant Singh Rajput had consumed all his life when she was with him.”
He further said, “Being in the household of Sushant Singh Rajput cannot be termed as a syndicate. She has not dealt with anybody in her life and there is no allegation that she dealt with anybody else.”
When asked about chats exchanged between Rhea and Sushant’s manager Jaya Saha, he said, “What Jaya Saha did with Sushant and Rhea was only prescribe or send CBD oil which is an extract of ganja leaves, which is not a narcotic substance.”
Notably, the NCB, which is probing an alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus, on Wednesday summoned actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khanand Rakul Preet Singh among others for questioning, an official said.
Deepika has been called to record her statement on September 25, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor on September 26 while Rakul Preet Singh, Rajput’s talent manager Shruti Modi and designer Simone Khambata have been asked to appear on Thursday, the official further said.
