Cuttack: A day after Rhea Chakraborty’s alleged chat on availability of weed (Ganja/ dry cannabis) in Bhubaneswar became the point of discussion in national media and brought a new twist in Sushant Singh Rajput case, Odisha DGP Abhay on Thursday stated that there is no clarity on the matter as of now.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has already written to the NCB to look into the drugs aspect in Sushant Singh Rajput death case and Rhea Chakraborty has been booked under the NDPS Act. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is probing a money-laundering angle into the death of Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput.
While responding to media query, Odisha DGP Abhay said, “It is a particular case and another agency (NCB) is currently investigating it. Commenting on it would not be appropriate.”
Admitting that weed is easily available in Odisha, DGP Abhay said that it is a fact and we cannot deny it. However, our efforts are on to curb such illegal activity and we have seized over 630 quintals of ganja so far which is highest than the yearly total seizure in 2018 and 2019.
To a question whether Rhea Chakraborty had come to Bhubaneswar, Odisha DGP said it is not under the purview of the State Police and another agency is probing it.
“The entire drugs issue came out yesterday. If NCB or any other agencies seek any help of Odisha Police, we will definitely cooperate in the ongoing investigation,” Abhay added.
Earlier yesterday, a purported Bhubaneswar twist to the drugs angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput case had come to fore.
As per Rhea’s chat messages, which were accessed by an English news channel (Times Now), she reportedly said one of her friends Simone Khambatta that the weed available in Odisha’s capital city of Bhubaneswar is ‘best ever.’
