In a major disclosure by the prime accused Rhea Chakraborty, the 28-year old has admitted that she apparently consumed drugs at behest of late Sushant Singh Rajput. As per Times Now, Rhea has apparently confessed that she took drugs on the insistence of Sushant. She reportedly told the investigating officers that she often used to stop Sushant from taking drugs and stay away from them. However, she alleged that Sushant did not heed her advice. Further, she reportedly broke down in cross interrogation with brother Showik and confessed that all three apparently took drugs but only on Sushant's insistence. As per the news channel's report, Rhea also alleged that during the lockdown, Sushant apparently could not procure drugs from usual suppliers, that is when Showik came into the picture and he procured drugs for the late actor.
Reportedly, Rhea further continued to maintain that she took drugs only as Sushant asked her to. Further, the report stated that Showik was introduced to drug peddlers reportedly during the lockdown as Sushant could not get drugs from other sources. She alleged that it was only then that Showik came into the picture. Showik was remanded to the NCB along with Samuel Miranda till September 9. Later, Sushant's house staff Dipesh Sawant also was remanded to NCB for involvement with drug peddlers in the case. Rhea, Samuel, Showik and others were apparently involved in drug chats that were uncovered by the Enforcement Directorate after which they asked the NCB to step in. After a raid at Rhea and Samuel Miranda's place, Showik and Samuel were arrested by the NCB. Sushant's case is currently being probed by the ED, NCB and the CBI.
