In a public statement, after the arrest of Showik Chakraborty, actor Rhea Chakraborty’s father Indrajit Chakraborty spoke about how a middle-class family pulled down. And how his daughter would be the next to be arrested.

Actor Rhea Chakraborty’s father Lt Col (retired) Indarjit Chakraborty on Saturday broke his silence over his son Showik’s arrest by NCB on Friday. He said that a middle-class family has been “demolished”.

“Congratulations India, you have arrested my son, I’m sure next on the line is my daughter and I don’t know who is next thereafter. You have effectively demolished a middle-class family. But of course, for the sake of justice, everything is justified. Jai hind,” he said in a statement condemning the arrest of his 24-year-old son.

The family of the actor has maintained that the allegations put by SSR’s father, KK Singh, against them are all false. Along with Rhea and Showik, their father is also one of the accused in the case that is registered with the CBI and is being probed in Mumbai currently.

Along with Showik, the house manager of SSR, Samuel Miranda, and former cook, DipeshSawant has also been arrested by the NCB in relation to the drug angle in the case. Both Showik and Samuel have reportedly confessed to the NCB about procuring drugs from various peddlers for Rhea and Sushant.

SSR’s father lodged his FIR with the Bihar Police on July 25 after which the case was handed over to the CBI by the Supreme Court on August 3. Even with three federal agencies probing the matter – Central Bureau of Investigation, Enforcement Directorate (ED), and the NCB, there’s been one major arrest (of Showik) from the angle of drug possession. It is believed Rhea can be arrested next.
