Shibani Dandekar has come down heavily on Ankita Lokhande after the latter slammed Rhea Chakraborty for allegedly allowing Sushant Singh Rajput to consume drugs "when she very well knew about his mental state".
Rhea's close friend, actress Shibani Dandekar, has slammed the disparity in treatment of the two by sharing a picture wherein Rhea is being hounded by the press, whereas Kangana is guarded by a posse of elite commandos of the CRPF.
Ankita Lokhande has said that on one hand, Rhea Chakraborty was coordinating with Sushant Singh Rajput's doctors regarding his health issues, but on the other hand, she was "coordinating drug logistics for him".
Actress Rhea Chakraborty, arrested by the NCB in a drugs case linked to her boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death, on Wednesday moved a bail plea before a sessions court in Mumbai. This is her second attempt to seek release after a magistrate court on Tuesday refused to grant her bail. In the fresh plea, filed by her lawyer Satish Maneshinde, the 28-year-old actress claimed to be "innocent". "She has not committed any crime whatsoever and has been falsely implicated in the case," said the plea. The court will hear the bail application on Thursday.
Rhea’s brother Showik Chakraborty’s judicial custody has been extended. Along with him, Sushant Singh Rajput’s former manager Samuel Miranda and alleged drug peddlers Zaid Vilatra and Basit Parihar have been sent to 14-day judicial custody by Mumbai sessions court. They had all applied for bail but the matter was adjourned till Thursday.
Rhea was charged under NDPS Act Sections 8(C), 20(b)(ii), 22, 27A, 28 and 29, for her alleged role in the drugs angle which has emerged in the investigations into the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. In an anti-climax of sorts, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested her, but later declined to take her into its own custody and instead sought 14-day judicial custody, which was granted. The NCB made the sensational arrest as part of its probe to unravel the drugs nexus in the film industry, capping three days of tough grilling and intense speculation.
