Actor Rhea Chakraborty was arrested on September 8 over drug charges and was shifted to Byculla jail on September 9. The actress reportedly admitted to procuring drugs for late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The court rejected Chakraborty's bail application on Tuesday. She spent the night in lockup at Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office. Rhea Chakraborty was arrested under sections 27A, 21, 22, 29, and 28 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
Actor Ankita Lokhande, former girlfriend of Sushant and co-star on TV series Pavitra Rishta, said on Wednesday that she never claimed that the late actor was "murdered". She said she supported his family and wanted justice for them.
Following Chakraborty's arrest, Ankita took to Twitter to tweet, "Nothing happens by chance, by fate. You create your own fate by your actions. That's Karma."
"I again clarify, for the reason time and again being asked by the media to me on whether I feel it's a murder or suicide? I have never said it's a murder or anyone, in particular, is responsible. I always have encouraged justice for my late friend SSR and stood by the bereaved family and truth should be brought out by the investigating agencies," she said in a lengthy statement.
Calling herself a "Maharashtrian and an Indian citizen", Ankita Lokhande said that she has complete faith in both the state government and central agencies. "I only came forward to narrate about SSR and his mental health till 2016," she added.
"When she (Rhea) very well knew about his mental state by publicly stating that he was in depression. Should she have allowed a depressed man to consume drugs? How is that going to help? His condition would deteriorate to a level that would make a man take the action that SSR has allegedly taken. She was the closest person to him at that time," Lokhande further said.
"Would anyone, who claims to have loved someone so deeply, allow the other person to consume drugs claiming to know his mental state and condition? Would you do that? I don't think anyone would. So how can it not be seen as an act of carelessness and irresponsibility?" she further questioned..
"As per her, she informed his family about his ongoing treatment but did she ever inform them about his drug consumption? I am sure she didn't because maybe she, herself, enjoyed consuming it. And this is why I feel it's Karma/Fate," she wrote.
Ankita Lokhande said that she will continue to support Sushant Singh Rajput's family.
