The CBI, ED and NCB has been investigating late actor Sushant Singh Rajput case. The NCB has arrested SSR‘s staff Dipesh Sawant, Samuel Miranda and Rhea‘s brother Showik Chakraborty in connection with drugs.
Now, As per a news report by the Times Of India, Showik Chakraborty‘s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has stated in his statement as he argued of the former’s bail in court. The lawyer states that the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput had consumed drugs even before he had met Rhea Chakraborty. He further added that Sushant had consumed drugs against the medical advice given to him.
The news report further states the lawyer saying that the late star wanted to take some ‘illegal and unwarranted prescription’ which was sent to Sushant by his sister Priyanka. Lawyer Satish Maneshinde further argues in his statement that Sushant never took any online consultation with the doctor who gave the prescription and that the late actor never met him as well.
The lawyer also reportedly claims that both Rhea and Showik have never taken any Narcotic/Psychotropic drugs and that the two is ready to undergo a medical examination. Showik Chakraborty‘s lawyer further makes another shocking revelation that Sushant Singh Rajput also consumed drugs while he was filming Kedarnath during the period 2016-2017. He further states that in no way did the late actor start taking drugs after meeting Rhea Chakraborty. The news report further states lawyer Satish Maneshinde saying that Showik Chakraborty and Samuel Miranda are arrested after the death of Sushant and calls the arrest ‘unwarranted.’
The Lawyer reportedly said that other than the WhatsApp messages there is no other proof found, and also has to be proved during the trial. He adds that procuring ‘Ganja’ is a punishable offense under section 20 (b) (ii)(A) is bailable under 28 and 29 of NDPS Act. The section 27A is not applicable. The lawyer also states that ED and CBI did not find any incriminating proof of abetment or siphoning money, not even of Rs 15 crores by Rhea or her family and calls the probes by multiple agencies a witch-hunt.
