Tweet from Fake Twitter account of Indrajit Chakraborty 

The story published earlier, ‘Rhea Chakraborty’s father Indrajit on her arrest and rejection of bail plea: I should die' has been withdrawn due to factual inaccuracies in quoting tweet. The error is regretted.

After three days of grilling by the NCB, actress Rhea Chakraborty got arrested on Tuesday in a drugs probe surrounding in late Sushant Singh Rajput death case. After her arrest under sections 27A, 21, 22, 29, and 28 of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, she was taken for medical tests. Later, the Jalebi actress was sent for 14-day judicial custody and not only this her bail plea was also rejected by additional chief judicial magistrate through video conferencing. After all this, social media was abuzz when a fake Twitter handle of Rhea's father Indrajit Chakraborty wrote, "No father can bear injustice on his daughter. I should die." Also, another tweet by the handle read,, "बगैर किसी सबूत के पूरा देश रिया को फांसी पर लटकाने को तुला है..(translating to' the entire country is hell-bent to send Rhea behind bars without any proof.')" 

However, many in media fell for the tweet which was not by Rheas father as he is not on Twitter at all. 

Meanwhile, Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister, Shweta Singh Kirti, took to Instagram to share a post on Karma as she wrote, "Don’t Worry, have patience! The whole truth will unfold eventually. Don’t pay any attention to the Naysayers and Paid PR. NCB, CBI and ED they are doing an impeccable job, let’s have faith in them. And believe me #godiswithus…"

This is a corrected report.
