On day 20 (10th September) of investigation, Rhea Chakraborty who is in Byculla Jail, Mumbai in connection to the drugs angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, applied for bail which got rejected. She in her bail stated that she was coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions during custody.
The 20-page bail application further read that Rhea is innocent and has not committed the crime whatsoever and she has been falsely implicated in the present case. On the other hand, a confession of Rhea’s brother Showik has emerged wherein he said that he used to procure drugs for Sushant.
Here have a look at the events that happened yesterday:
11:49 am:- Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde filed a bail plea which stated, "During her NCB custody, the applicant (Rhea) was coerced into making self-incriminating confessions. The actor has formally retracted all such incriminating confessions."
He further added that her arrest is "unwarranted and without any justification". Her liberty has arbitrarily been curtailed. Also, no female officer was present during her interrogation. (PTI)
