Rhea Chakraborty ‘totally exposed’, was connected with drug peddlers: Bihar DGP
“Rhea is one of the accused in a case registered in Patna based on the complaint of Sushant’s father. The country wants to know the reason behind his death. When NCB was investigating the case, some evidence must have come out based on which Rhea was arrested. I am not excited. There is no reason for me to be happy or unhappy. I want the mystery to come out. That mystery has to be unfolded. And these things are the first step,” Bihar DGP Gupteshwar Pandey said.
