Kolkata: Congress takes out rally for ‘daughter of Bengal’ Rhea Chakraborty after her arrest in drug case – DNA India

Kolkata News

Rhea Chakraborty is currently arrested and in the custody of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). Calling it a ‘political conspiracy’, the congress of West Bengal took out a rally for the ‘daughter of Bengal’. The slogans they shouted hinted that there is a ‘political conspiracy’ and ‘vindictive behaviour’ against Rhea which will not be tolerated.

The president of West Bengal Congress Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury started the rally from Congress office to Wellington junction, in Kolkata. A verified handle of West Bengal Congress shared images from the rally, while another user shared a video from the rally.

“[Translated] Political conspiracy and vindictive behaviour against Rhea Chakraborty, the daughter of Bengal, will not be tolerated. The protest rally was taken out from provincial Congress office to Wellington junction on the instructions of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, president of the West Bengal Congress,” read the tweet from Congress.

In a related development, during her NCB probe, Rhea Chakraborty named actresses Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh too in the drug case. She also informed that designer Simone Khambatta, Sushant’s friend and former manager Rohini Iyer, and the actor’s ‘Dil Bechara’ director Mukesh Chhabra also consumed the narcotics substances.

Rhea has revealed as many as 15 names who took drugs while being interrogated by the agency. Sources say Rhea told NCB that 80 per cent of Bollywood stars are on drugs. Reportedly, Rhea had already accepted her role in procuring drugs for Sushant and handling the finances.

It has been learnt that 15 people named by Rhea belong to B-category of actors and are now on NCB radar. Reports also stated that the NCB will summon 25 prominent Bollywood stars soon. 

The drug angle in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case came to light after a leaked WhatsApp chat hinted that Rhea Chakraborty, among others, dealt in drugs. After conducting their investigation, NCB arrested Rhea’s brother Showik, followed by her arrest. Sushant’s house manager Dipesh Sawant and a few other drug peddlers were also taken in custody.

A Mumbai special court rejected Rhea, Showik and four other bail applications on Friday.
