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.”
Rhea has currently been taken into judicial custody by the NCB. Just today, in a new plea filed by her lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, it is stated that she has been falsely implicated in the case and that she never accepted to having committed any crime.
