Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Thursday during the hearing of bail plea said she was coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions, which she now retracts.
During the hearing, she said her life is at risk in judicial custody and she has received rape and death threats and that three investigations have taken a severe toll on her mental health and well-being.
In her bail application, Rhea said she has “not committed any crime whatsoever and has been falsely implicated in the case”.
“During her custody, the applicant was coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions. By her application dated September 8, the applicant has formally retracted all such incriminatory confessions,” NDTV quoted Rhea Chakraborty as saying.
She argued in her petition that her arrest was unwarranted and without any justification, and that her liberty was arbitrarily curtailed and that no female officer was present during her interrogation.
Rhea contended that the offence involved only a small quantity of drugs and therefore, called for only a year’s jail and was a bailable charge.
After three days of thorough interrogation, actress Rhea Chakraborty has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday in connection with the drugs-related allegations.
As per the reports, Rhea has admitted of organizing drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput and also consuming them at times.
During the interrogation, Rhea told the NCB, “Whatever I did, I did for Sushant.”
Interestingly, Rhea Chakraborty had in multiple interviews on TV news channels had claimed that she never consumed drugs and rather stopped Sushant from consuming the same.
Showik Chakraborty, brother of actress Rhea Chakraborty, along with Samuel Miranda, Sushant Singh’s house manager, was arrested earlier by the Narcotics Control Bureau on various sections of anti-drugs law.
