A new angle has emerged in Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case, which is reportedly about drugs. The ED recently has shared WhatsApp chats, of Rhea Chakraborty and her friends, with the Narcotics Control Bureau and the CBI alleging the usage and dealing of drugs. Now, Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh has reacted to it and stated that the drugs would have been used to control Sushant.
In conversation with Times Now, Vikas Singh called this act of giving drugs to Sushant highly illegal and criminal as even the late actor’s servants stated before in their statements that Rhea used to party on one floor with her friends while Sushant used to sleep on another floor.

The senior lawyer stated that this looked like an incident of drugging with Sushant being administered something without his knowledge and this could have ultimately have led to his death.
The chats that were revealed earlier also stated that Rhea was illegally using drugs that were banned such as MDMA, Hashish, and Marijuana. As reported, Rhea was also taking instructions from an employee at a talent management agency to give the drugs to Sushant.
Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti tweeted reacting on the same, and wrote, “This is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE!! An immediate action should be taken by CBI on this. #RheaDrugsChat”
