#RheaArrest: Sreelekha Mitra deems the media trial unacceptable

After three days of interrogation, Sushant Singh Rajput’s former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Tuesday after she allegedly confessed to using drugs. And like the entire nation, actress Sreelekha Mitra has been following the probe into Sushant’s death. While she is sympathetic towards the late actor and his family, she said she could not accept the media and social media trial Rhea Chakraborty and her family had to go through. “Until Rhea is proven guilty, it is hard to come to a conclusion, but a number of people have declared her and her family guilty and have started bashing them. I think this tendency is not acceptable. I think people who are involved in this are getting sadistic pleasure out of it,” she said.

Sreelekha thinks that the kind of trauma and harassment Rhea and her family are going through are unbearable and no one should endure this. “I understand that people are sympathetic towards Sushant’s family and since they are not getting anyone to blame, Rhea is facing all the heat. But this is sad,” she added.
