This assumes significance against the backdrop of leaked WhatsApp messages, which according to news channels revealed that Rhea used to give drugs to Sushant.
On Wednesday, Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti had questioned as to why the culprits were moving about ‘scot-free’. “They should be taken under custody immediately,” she wrote.
