During her questioning with the CBI, Rhea Chakraborty said that she has never consumed drugs. Rhea claimed that Sushant Singh Rajput used to smoke Marijuana before she met him. When asked about her chats on drugs with Gaurav Arya, Jaya Saha, Shruti Modi and Samuel Miranda, Rhea maintained that it was not for her.
However, according to sources, Rhea wasn’t able to give a satisfactory explanation about her chats with Gaurav Arya in 2017 when they spoke about drugs.
The CBI is corroborating Rhea’s claim with statements of other witnesses, these include Sushant’s ex-manager Shruti Modi and Jaya Saha. Earlier, India Today accessed WhatsApp messages retrieved from Rhea Chakraborty’s mobile phone. In these chats, the actress can be seen talking about drugs with Jaya Saha, Sushant’s former talent manager, Samuel Miranda and hotelier Gaurav Arya.
The messages indicated that Rhea sporadically used drugs like MDMA, marijuana, among others. Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) filed a criminal case against Rhea and are now investigating the case.
It is alleged that Gaurav supplied drugs to Rhea. He is being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) today. Earlier, he was griiled by the ED on Monday.
The CBI, on the other hand, has called Rhea’s parents and her brother Showik Chakraborty for questioning today. Sources say that Rhea might be questioned jointly with Sushant’s sisters, Meetu and Priyanka Singh.
Yesterday (August 31), Rhea was questioned consecutively for the fourth day by the CBI. She was grilled for more than eight hours.
