Bangla Hunt Desk: Rhea Chakraborty, who was arrested in connection with the drug connection in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, is not taking the issue lightly. A Mumbai court has extended the remand of Riya and Sauvik Chakraborty till October 20. The remand of Riya Chakraborty, Sauvik Chakraborty and 16 others arrested on charges of buying drugs ended today.
Two days ago, in the Lok Sabha, Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury demanded the release of actor Sushant Singh Rajput's live-in partner Rhea Chakraborty without further ado. AIIMS doctors on Sunday ruled out Sushant Singh's death, saying Sushant had committed suicide by hanging. Adhir Chowdhury said the arrest of Riya Chakraborty was a conspiracy as he was involved in drug connection with Sushant's death. He had earlier said that the BJP was doing this to take advantage of the Bihar vote.
He claimed on Twitter that Rhea had been the victim of a political conspiracy. He tweeted that now the BJP could publicly accuse the AIIMS forensic team, which has denied allegations of conspiracy behind the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
“We are all saddened by Sushant's death, but Sushant cannot be honored by hanging a woman as an accused,” he said. I have said before that Riya Chakraborty is an innocent woman, she should be released without being cheated anymore. He has become a victim of hateful politics.
Riya was arrested by the NCB on September 8. In its medical-legal verdict, the CBI has ruled out the possibility of Sushant Singh Rajput being strangled to death by a six-member team of forensic doctors.
