ControversyAfter almost a month of Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death, his father, K. K. Singh filed an F.I.R. against Rhea Chakraborty at the Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna on 28 July 2020. Later, a four-member team of Patna Police left for Mumbai to question Rhea and her family members. In the FIR, Mr. K. K. Singh alleged that Sushant was in the complete possession of Rhea, and she had also full control over his finances, including his bank accounts and credit cards. He further said that “Sushant called his sister and told her that Rhea had threatened him to show doctor receipts to the media and would prove him mad. Thereafter, no person would give him work. On June 8 night, Sushant’s secretary Disha committed suicide. Rhea had appointed her as Sushant’s secretary. Later, Rhea blocked Sushant’s number on her cell. Sushant was afraid that Rhea could have made him responsible for his manager’s suicide as she had threatened to frame him in the secretary’s suicide case.” Hindustan Times

Amid growing online campaign fuelled by many conspiracy theories, Sushant Singh’s death case was transferred to the CBI in August 2020. The agency filed a First Information Report (FIR) against Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, common friend Samuel Miranda, and three others. In a statement, the agency said, “CBI has registered a case related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on the request of Bihar government and further notification from GoI and taken over the investigation of the case, earlier registered at police station Rajiv Nagar, Patna vide FIR no.241/2020 dated 25-7-2020. The case was registered against six accused and others.” The Economic Times

Later, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) also summoned her for the probe related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. After a three day of questioning, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Rhea Chakraborty on 8 September 2020. The Narcotics Control Bureau started its inquiries based on WhatsApp chats retrieved from Rhea Chakraborty’s phone, which revealed conversations around procuring drugs, allegedly for Sushant Singh Rajput. The bureau claimed that Dipesh Sawant (a member of Mr Rajput’s domestic staff) collected and delivered a total of 165 grams of marijuana between March 2020 and June 2020; on orders from Rhea and Showik Chakraborty.

After Rhea was booked under Section 27 A of the under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act on 8 September 2020, the same day, she appeared before a magistrate’s court, which sent her to 14-day judicial custody; she had to spent that night at the NCB office, and the next day, i.e., on 9 Septemeber 2020, she was sent to the Byculla Jail. After her bail plea was rejected by a magistrate’s court, she moved the special court. In her bail plea in the special court, she claimed herself to be innocent and accused the NCB of ‘falsely implicating’ her in the case.

Death of Sushant Singh Rajput

On 25 July, Rajput’s family lodged a first information report (FIR) with Patna Police, where his father lives, alleging Chakraborty and several others of abetment of suicide, wrongful restraint, wrongful confinement, theft, criminal breach of trust, and cheating under various sections of the IPC. Rajput’s father said in the FIR that Rajput had confided to his sister about Chakraborty threatening to make his medical receipts public and prove him mad; that Rajput was afraid Chakraborty would frame him for his secretary’s suicide; and that before his day of suicide, Chakraborty took away all doctor’s receipts. On 7 August, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) questioned Chakraborty and her brother over allegations of money laundering. On 19 August, the Supreme Court of India allowed the CBI to take control of the investigation. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), India’s national drug law enforcement agency, arrested Chakraborty on 8 September, charging that she and her brother had caused marijuana to be supplied to Rajput.

On 6 October, Mumbai Sessions Court extended Chakraborty’s judicial remand until 20 October, but a day later she was granted bail by the Bombay High Court. “Since she has no criminal antecedents,” the high court ruled, “there are reasonable grounds for believing that she is not likely to commit any offense while on bail.” Moreover, the high court rejected the NCB’s theory that Chakraborty had harbored and financed Rajput’s drug addiction, finding instead that she was not part of the chain of drug dealers involved in the case. “She has not forwarded the drugs allegedly procured by her to somebody else to earn monetary or other benefits,” wrote Justice Sarang Kotwal.”

Media coverage

On 27 August 2020, BBC News reported that in the wake of Rajput’s death, Chakraborty had “found herself at the centre of a vicious hate campaign led by some of India’s most high-profile journalists and social media trolls.” Subjected to gossip, innuendo, and misogynistic abuse, she was described by conservative television hosts as a “manipulative” woman who “performed black magic” and “drove Sushant to suicide.” After a purported fan of Rajput threatened her on Instagram with rape and murder and urged her to “commit suicide otherwise I will send people to kill you,” Chakraborty sought help from the cybercrime police. Supreme Court senior counsel Meenakshi Arora told the BBC that much of the press had already declared the actress guilty. “She’s been hanged, drawn and quartered. It’s a complete trial by media.” Three activists, arguing that trial by media poses “real and substantial risk of prejudice to the proper administration of justice,” petitioned the Bombay High Court to restrict reportage that could hamper the investigation of this case due to sensationalisation. News channels named as having conducted such media trials included Times Now, Republic TV, Zee News, News 18, and India Today. On 28 August, the Press Council of India (PCI), the autonomous press watchdog established by parliament, said coverage of the Sushant Singh Rajput case by many media outlets “is in violation of the norms of journalistic conduct.” The PCI advised media to not carry out a “parallel trial” by narrating the story to induce public belief in the guilt of one whom the PCI called “the person indicted.”

In their September 2020 study “Anatomy of a Rumour: Social media and the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput,” University of Michigan associate professor Joyojeet Pal and colleagues found Indian journalists and media houses “equally complicit in pushing an agenda against Rhea Chakraborty.” In particular, during the first month following Rajput’s death, news channel Republic TV “pushed insinuations on the finances of Rhea Chakraborty’s parents.” Over time, the researchers recount, Rhea Chakraborty was slandered, hounded, and “intensely targeted by trolling and mainstream media speculation online.” They conclude that “the case and its victims are a reminder of ways the patriarchy is alive and well, and always readying its blades for the next execution.”

On 7 October 2020, as Chakraborty was released on bail after nearly a month in pretrial confinement, the South China Morning Post noted that “India’s hyperbolic television channels, which have given more airtime to this case than India’s battle against Covid-19 and the recent rapes of lower-caste women, labelled Chakraborty a ‘murderer’.” Variety observed that since Rajput’s death, “Indian media, fueled by aggressive television anchors, has worked itself into an unprecedented feeding frenzy.” Following Chakraborty’s arrest, said Variety, “Haranguing television anchors appointed themselves judge and jury, with daily trials on primetime television.” The general audience, Variety added, “appears to be consuming the ongoing drama with relish.”
