In the latest development in the case of actor Sushant Singh Rajput‘s unfortunate death, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested his former girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty. They took her into custody for allegedly being involved in peddling drugs along with her brother, Showik Chakraborty and others.

In retaliation to the “media trials” by the many television news channels, a lot of netizens and Bollywood celebrities stood in solidarity with Rhea. They said that the law and judiciary should be allowed to take its course on the matter and condemned those who have been vilifying Rhea and her family.

Ankita Lokhande, who has since the beginning supported Sushant’s family, took to her Instagram because she wanted to ‘clarify’ her stance on whether she thinks Sushant’s death was a suicide or a murder because she says that she has been misunderstood. She also wrote a note for all her ‘haters’ and spoke about her ‘karma’ and ‘fate’ post that she was called out for previously by celebrities like Shibani Dandekar.

In her note, Ankita states that she never said it’s a murder or that anyone in particular is responsible for it. Addressing her haters, she indirectly points to everyone in support of Rhea and questions how she could “allow SSR to consume drugs” after being aware of his mental state.

She ends by saying that she is ‘standing by his family’ and states, “But let us maintain civility by not coming on to each other personally, either directly or indirectly.”

Here’s her note:

I again clarify, for the reason  time and again being asked by the media to me on whether I  feel it's a murder or suicide? I have never said it's a murder or anyone in particular is responsible. I always have encouraged justice for my late friend SSR and stood by the bereaved family and truth should be brought out by the investigating agencies. Being a Maharashtrian and an Indian citizen, I have total faith in the Maharashtra State Govt/Police & Central Government instrumentalities. Though when some  lingos like "Sautan" and "widow" were used for me, which is in public knowledge. I never responded to it. I only came forward to narrate about SSR and his mental health till 2016. Dear Haters! Let us assume you must have known in and out about your friend and whats going on in her life and relationship. Glad to see you wake up finally, but I wish you would have woken up sooner and advised your friend not to support any kind of drug abuse by SSR if any. When she very well knew about his mental state by publicly stating that he was in depression. Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs? How is that going to help?  His condition would deteriorate to a level that would make a man take the action that SSR has allegedly taken. She was the closest person to him at that time. On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all the doctors for his betterment of health on request of SSR, and on the other hand, she was coordinating drug logistics for him. Would anyone, who claims to have loved someone so deeply, allow the other person to consume drugs claiming to know his mental state and condition? Would you do that? I don't think anyone would. So how can it not be seen as an act of carelessness and irresponsibility? As per her, she informed his family about his ongoing treatment but did she ever inform them about his drug consumption? I am sure she didn't because maybe she, herself, enjoyed consuming it. And this is why I feel it's Karma/Fate. Little advice for the unknown."You guard your friend and I am standing by the family". But let us maintain civility by not coming on to each other personally, either directly or indirectly.
