Actor Swara Bhasker has called for the release of Rhea Chakraborty after an AIIMS forensic team tasked with re-evaluating Sushant’s post-mortem report concluded that the actor died by suicide, and wasn’t murdered, reported Hindustan Times (HT).
Rhea is in Byculla Jail for allegedly procuring banned drugs for her boyfriend, the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput who died on June 14.
Swara’s tweet was in support of the leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, Adhir Chowdhury’s calls for Rhea’s release. She wrote: “Well done sir!” and added applause emojis, using the hashtag “Release Rhea Chakraborty.”
“We are all pained by the expiry of Sushant Ji but he cannot be honored by falsely implicating a lady as an accused, I have earlier said that Rhea Chakroborty was an innocent lady, she should be released without further harassment to her, she has been the victim of political conspiracy,” the MP had written in a tweet.
On Saturday, a panel of AIIMS doctors termed Sushant’s death ‘a case of hanging and death by suicide’. In a report submitted to the CBI on September 29, the six-member team of forensic doctors said that there were ‘no injuries on the body other than of hanging’ nor was ‘presence of any seductive material’ detected, dismissing claims of strangulation and poisoning, HT reported.
