Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti has welcomed actor Rhea Chakraborty’s arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau, saying ‘God is with us’. She also shared a folded hand emoji with her tweet. Rhea is the prime accused in Sushant’s death case, which is being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation. A separate investigation is also being carried out by the Enforcement Directorate.

Rhea was arrested by the NCB on Tuesday afternoon. The agency’s deputy director KPS Malhotra has confirmed the arrest.

Sushant’s ex-girlfriend Ankita Lokhande also reacted to the tweet, sharing many heart emojis and writing ‘Diii’. Ankita has supported Sushant’s family after they filed abetment to suicide case against Rhea.


Rhea was questioned for the third day on Tuesday by the agency in connection with the death of Sushant on June 14. The NCB had questioned Chakraborty for about eight hours on Monday and six hours on Sunday.

The 28-year-old actor was confronted with her younger brother Showik Chakraborty (24), Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda (33) and his house staffer Dipesh Sawant to ascertain their roles in an alleged drug racket. Showik was arrested last week in connection with the case.

After his arrest, their father Indrajit Chakraborty had released a statement. “Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I’m sure next on the line is my daughter and I don’t know who is next thereafter. You have effectively demolished a middle class family. But of course, for the sake of justice everything is justified. Jai hind,” Lt Col Indrajit Chakraborty (Retd), who has also been questioned by the CBI for days, had said in the statement.
