The investigating agency, NCB had filed its chargesheet related to the drug case in the special NDPS court. According to ANI's tweet, a total of 33 accused were named in the case, including the late actor's girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty. ANI's tweet could be read as "Mumbai: Narcotics Control Bureau files chargesheet in Sushant Singh Rajput related drug case in Special NDPS court. Chargesheet names 33 accused & statements of 200 witnesses. More than 12,000 pages in hard copy &about 50,000 pages in the digital format submitted in court today: NCB." Now, Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer, Satish Maneshinde has reacted to NCB's (Narcotics Control Bureau) chargesheet in his latest statement.
According to a report in News 18, Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer, Satish Maneshinde reacted to NCB's 14,000 long-pages chargesheet in late Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput's drug case in which his client, Rhea's name was mentioned in the accused list with 32 others. The confident lawyer has talked about the amount of narcotic substance NCB had recovered from all the 33 mentioned accused combined in his statement. Satish said, "The 12,000 page charge was expected. All efforts of NCB have been directed towards Rhea Chakraborty to some how rope her in. The entire amount of 'Narcotic Substances' recovered 'against 33 Accused' are nothing compared to what even a constable in Mumbai Police or Narcotics cell or the airport customs or other agencies recover from one raid or trap."
Going further in his statement, Rhea Chakraborty's lawyer, Satish Maneshinde also took a jibe at the NCB's drug probe and highlighted the way NCB had targeted his client, Rhea and her brother, Showik Chakraborty. He added, "The entire NCB from top to bottom was engaged in unearthing drug angle in Bollywood… There's hardly any material against any known faces who were paraded during the investigations, I wonder why? Either the allegations were false or Only God Knows the Truth." The prominent lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, also titled the NCB's entire chargesheet and proceedings as 'damp squib'. He added, "The charge sheet is a damp squib standing on the foundation of Inadmissible Evidence and Statements recorded under section 67 of the NDPS Act even after the Supreme Court Judgement in Toofan Singh Judgement."

At the end of his statement, Satish Maneshinde concluded saying that no matter how much NCB tries to project his client, Rhea Chakraborty, as the prime accused in her late beau, Sushant Singh Rajput's drug case, he and Rhea are going to have the last laugh. Satish concluded, "Without Rhea Chakraborty being charged this case has no substance… The HC has found no prima facie material at the stage of Bail of alleged 'Financing" drugs trade. We will have the last laugh." Well, it'll be interesting to see in which direction this case will go now, after such a strong and fearless reaction from Rhea's lawyer, Satish to NCB's chargesheet.
