Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case is turning murkier with each passing day. The latest development in the case states that Rhea Chakraborty allegedly administered drugs to Sushant. Reacting to the new ‘drug angle’, Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh has now said that the late actor was being drugged unknowingly which ultimately led to his death.
In the recent WhatsApp chats of Rhea exposed by Times Now, it seems like the actress allegedly used banned drugs like MDMA and marijuana. One of the alleged messages exchanged between Rhea and Jaya Saha reads, “Use 4 drops in tea, let him sip it …. Give it 30-40 mins to kick in.” Presumably, they were talking about administering the drug to Sushant. Now, this has led to another huge twist in Sushant’s death case.
Reacting on these exposed chats allegedly exchanged Rhea and her associates, SSR’s family lawyer Vikas Singh told Times Now, “In our FIR, we have mentioned that Sushant used to be over-drugged. We were under the impression that this was some drug administered by a doctor, a psychiatrist, but this revelation is absolutely explosive. Probably, he was being literally drugged, meaning he was given these hardcore drugs which are given to someone to sort of control his mind.”

Vikas further added, “It is quite obvious that what was done to Sushant was definitely highly illegal and highly criminal. These drugs were being used to either control him, calm him down or make him docile. That is what the servants also say, that he used to be sleeping on the ground floor. He had a duplex, sixth floor and seventh floor. He used to be sleeping on one floor and there were parties going on on the other floor. Rhea used to be having a party and Sushant used to be sleeping on the other floor. So, there was definitely an element of actual drugging. Not drugging in the sense that we had said in the FIR, but actual drugging. It means that he was administered something contrary to his will, without his knowledge, and the purpose of that drugging was to subdue him, make him docile or to affect his mind very badly. That is ultimately what led to his death.”
Now the Narcotics Control Bureau will also be launching a probe into Sushant’s death case. Rakesh Asthana, director of Narco Control Bureau confirmed the reports as he told India Today, “We are also starting the investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.”
