Actress Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has revealed, that the 28-year-old actress has not named anyone in her statement regarding the drug links in Bollywood. 

The statement comes after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) summoned Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh in connection with the drug case related to Sushant Singh Rajput death.

In a TV interview, Maneshinde said: "Rhea Chakraborty has not named anybody in her statement. If NCB or anybody is making a statement that she has leaked, it’s totally false. There is no thread of evidence that suggests that Rhea Chakraborty has named anybody apart from what Sushant Singh Rajput had consumed all his life when she was with him.”

In conversation with CNNNews18, the lawyer denied all claims of Rhea being a part of a drug syndicate, he said: "Being in the household of Sushant Singh Rajput cannot be termed as a syndicate. She has not dealt with anybody in her life and there is no allegation that she dealt with anybody else.”

When asked about the WhatsApp chats exchanged between Rhea and Sushant's manager Jaya Saha, he said: “What Jaya Saha did with Sushant and Rhea was only prescribe or send CBD oil which is an extract of ganja leaves, which is not a narcotic substance. You can see on the bottle of CBD that it does not contain any narcotic substance.”

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is probing an alleged Bollywood-drugs nexus, on Wednesday summoned actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khanand Rakul Preet Singh among others for questioning, an official said.
