Riya Chakraborty was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and sent to Byculla jail for 14 days in judicial custody after the drugs angle came to the fore in Sushant Singh Rajput’s case. Reports started pouring in that NCB strictly interrogated Riya in the drugs case during which Riya Chakraborty allegedly mentioned 25 big names of Bollywood who either take drugs or have drug parties. Some reports said that Riya had also named Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh in this interrogation. After this Rakul Preet Singh’s name started coming in the news. Now Rakul Preet has approached the court against this.
Rakul Preet Singh appealed to the court
Rakul Preet Singh argues that the investigation of this case is in the initial stages and the way her name is being dragged into the drug case, her image is being damaged. Action should be taken against such channels.
Rakul Preet has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court after her name surfaced in the drugs case. According to reports, Rakul, through her lawyer, has accused herself of media trial in the case of Sushant Singh Rajput in the Delhi High Court. He has said in his petition that his name being named in the news regarding drugs in the Sushant case is completely in violation of the guidelines of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Therefore, Rakul Preet has appealed to the High Court to direct the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting that there should be no media coverage against her.
The petition filed on behalf of Rakul Preet said, “I came to know during a shoot that Riya took my and Sara’s name and since then I am constantly being defamed in the media.” Rakul Preet argues that the investigation of this case is in the initial stages and the way her name is being dragged into the drug case, her image is being damaged. Action should be taken against such channels.
