Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty's father Lt Col (Retd) Indrajit Chakraborty on Saturday condemned the arrest of his 24-year-old son Showik in a drug probe in connection with actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death. Indrajit Chakraborty 'congratulated' India after his son's arrest and said that his daughter Rhea is next in line.
"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," his statement read.
