Satish Manshinde said in his statement that there is no substance in this charge sheet without making Riya Chakraborty an accused.
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday filed a chargesheet of about 12,000 thousand pages in the drugs case related to the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. In this, 33 people including Riya Chakraborty and his brother Shouvik Chakraborty have been accused. 5 people have been declared absconding. Now Riya’s lawyer Satish Manshinde Reaction has come out regarding this.
We will finally win: Manshinde
According to Manshinde- A 12,000-page chargesheet was expected. All efforts of NCB are towards Riya Chakraborty to implicate him somehow. The narcotics substance recovered from the 33 accused is nothing compared to what a constable of Mumbai Police or Narcotics Cell or Airport Custom can recover in a raid or trap. From top to bottom the entire NCB is engaged in exposing the drugs angle in Bollywood. Hardly any evidence has been found against the people whose parade was conducted during the investigation. I wonder why? Either the allegations were false or God knows the truth. This charge sheet is a pompous bomb, which stands on the foundation of statements taken under Section 67 of the NDPS Act even after the unnecessary evidence and the Hurricane Singh Judgment of the Supreme Court. There is no substance in this case without making Riya Chakraborty an accused. During the bail, the High Court has not received any prima facie material to finance the alleged drugs trades. Ultimately the heat will be ours. Satyameva Jayate.
Riya is accused of buying and selling drugs
The 11,700-page chargesheet includes 33 names including Sushant’s girlfriend Riya Chakraborty, her brother Shouvik Chakraborty. The 5 accused have been declared absconding. In the charge sheet, Riya Chakraborty has been accused of buying and selling drugs and providing money.
This first charge sheet of NCB contains documents related to the seizure of drugs, all the evidence collected and the investigation till now. An NCB official has given this information. In the charge sheet, Riya has been described as the main character in the purchase of drugs and money transactions. It also features statements by actresses Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor.
A 50,000-page digital evidence has also been presented in the charge sheet. These include WhatsApp chats, phone call data records and bank documents among other evidence among the accused. According to sources, after three months of this main charge sheet, NCB can also present a supplementary charge sheet, which may contain the names of many Bollywood celebrities.
33 people have been arrested in this case so far
In this case, 33 people were arrested by the NCB. These include Riya, his brother Shovik, Sushant’s manager Samuel Miranda, Deepesh Sawant and several drug peddlers. In another case, NCB also questioned some famous actresses in Bollywood after getting clues from this case.
Sushant’s case came to NCB
Two months after Sushant’s death, his father K.K. K. Singh had filed a case in Patna. The case was against 5 people including Sushant’s girlfriend Riya and Riya’s family members. They were all accused of grabbing 17 crore rupees from Sushant. After this, Riya requested the Supreme Court to transfer this case to Mumbai.
The court handed over the case to the CBI. This is where the Enforcement Directorate (ED) entry took place in this case and the investigation of Riya’s WhatsApp chat revealed an angle of drugs. After getting a chat related to drugs, the Narcotics Control Bureau entered and the racket of big drugs running in Bollywood was busted.
