Actress Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty, who have both been arrested by the NCB and placed in judicial custody till October 6, filed an application in the Bombay High Court seeking bail on Tuesday. Their lawyer Satish Maneshinde said the plea will come up for hearing on Thursday after a holiday was declared due to water logging in the city.
In her bail plea, Rhea Chakraborty says it is clear that "Sushant Singh Rajput was the only consumer of drugs and that he was directing his staff members to procure his drugs". She also says "if the late actor were alive today, he would have been charged for the consumption of small quantities, which is a bailable offence having punishment of a term of imprisonment upto one year."
It is "preposterous", she argues, that while the "consumer of drugs" would receive a maximum punishment of up to one year jail, she would, having paid for the drugs on a few occasions, would be subjected to up to 20 years in jail.
Sushant Singh Rajput, says Rhea Chakraborty, "used her, her brother Showik and members of his household staff to facilitate his own drug habit while ensuring that he did not leave a paper trail of his own in the form of any electronic evidence whatsoever". She also said: "It is unfortunate that Sushant Singh Rajput took advantage of those closest to him to sustain his drug habit and thought it fit to expose them to the perils that would entail".
She says that based on information in the public domain, Sushant Singh Rajput had asked his cook, Neeraj, "to make ganja joints/rolls/doobies and place them in his bedroom" three days before his death. She said Neeraj had told the CBI and Mumbai Police that he had prepared the joints and placed them in a box in his bedroom and "thereafter when the actor was found dead, he verified from the box that all the joints/doobies had been consumed and the entire box was empty".
