Rhea Chakraborty shared a video of her building compound wherein her father can be seen surrounded by what seems like a swarm of camerapersons and journalists, as they tried to shove mics on his face and click his pictures all at once. Sharing the video on her IG handle, Rhea has requested Mumbai Police to provide protection for her family. Scroll down to see the video!
Rhea wrote a message mentioning Mumbai Police alongside the video, and it can be read as "This is inside my building compound, The man in this video is my father Indrajit Chakraborty (retd . army officer). We have been trying to get out of our house to cooperate with ED, CBI and various investigation authorities to cooperate. There is a threat to my life and my family's life. We have informed the local police station and even gone there, no help provided. We have informed the investigation authorities to help us get to them, no help arrived. How is this family going to live? We are only asking for assistance, to cooperate with the various agencies that have asked us. I request @mumbaipolice to please provide protection so that we can cooperate with these investigation agencies. #safetyformyfamilyIn COVID times, these basic law and order restrictions need to be provided. Thank you."
According to the latest developments in the case, Sushant Singh Rajput's flatmate Siddharth Pithani told the Central Bureau of Investigation that eight hard drives were destroyed by professionals on June 8, 2020, before Rhea Chakraborty had left the house, according to India Today. Siddharth said that he wasn't aware of the contents of the hard drives, but gave the testimony to CBI that an IT person had come to the house and done the process in both Sushant and Rhea presence. He even named house help, Dipesh Sawant and cook, Neeraj Singh being present then, as reported by India Today.
Talking about the drug angle in the case, Times Now had accessed a few deleted WhatsApp chats of Rhea Chakraborty with someone named Jaya Saha that had allegedly proved that Rhea used and dealt in drugs. There were several texts exchanged between Rhea and her friends, who were also Sushant's friends, wherein, they were allegedly talking about MD, Hash, and more. One message, in particular, had gotten under the radar and had raised a lot of suspicions. It was a message sent by Jaya Saha to Rhea, which reads, "Use 4 drops in tea, let him sip it …. Give it 30-40 mins to kick in." This message had created a stir as it is being presumed that the 'him' in this message is Sushant Singh Rajput, as reported by Times Now.

Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti had reacted over the alleged drug conspiracy. She had demanded immediate legal action against Rhea by the CBI. Shweta had written on her Twitter handle, "This is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE!! An immediate action should be taken by CBI on this. #RheaDrugsChat." In another tweet, she had written, "Government of India needs to see to it that a prime accused should not be moving around giving interviews and doing publicity stunts!!! #ArrestRheaChakroborty."
On the other hand, Vikas Singh, the lawyer hired by Sushant's father, talked to India Today and expressed that he smells a bigger conspiracy at hand. He said, "I think there's something very sinister in this entire episode and it appears that there is the involvement of some big people in the case. The first thing that should happen is the suspension of Mumbai Commissioner of Police and DCP of that area."
