Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on September 8 under various sections of the NDPS Act in connection to Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case. After being in jail for almost a month, Rhea was finally released yesterday on bail. The Bombay High Court granted bail to the actress on a personal bond of Rs. 1 lakh.
Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde recently in an interview shared how the actress spent her days inside the Byculla jail.
Revealing how Rhea tried to be positive inside the jail, Maneshinde told NDTV, “I personally went to jail to see a client after so many years, because she was hounded, and I wanted to see the condition that she was in. I was fortunate to see that she was in good spirits. She looked after herself in jail. She used to conduct yoga classes for herself and her jail inmates.”
During the interview, Maneshinde even called Rhea a ‘Bengal tigress’ who will fight back to restore her tarnished image.
“She adjusted herself in jail because she could not get home food because of the pandemic, and she lived with the inmates as if she was a commoner. Being an army girl, she fought the conditions like a battle, and she is ready to face any person who is trying to accuse her and harm her interests,” he revealed further.
Further talking about how Sushant’s family is after Rhea, Maneshinde said, “The reason that she was hounded, was just because the family was after her. I don’t know for what reason, the family seems to be very vindictive as far as Rhea Chakraborty is concerned. I’ve been saying that the central agencies — the CBI, the NCB, the ED — have been hounding her only because she was the housewife or the live-in partner of this gentleman.”
Also commenting on how media channels presented fake and bogus stories to hound Rhea, the lawyer said that it was all for TRPs. He even called for these channels to be brought to court. While Rhea has been released on bail, her brother Showik is still in NCB’s custody.
