Rhea Chakraborty arrest: Actor retracts statements made to NCB

Actor Rhea Chakraborty, who was sent to 14-day judicial custody on Tuesday, said in her fresh bail plea that she was coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions, which she retracted. She also said that her life was at risk in judicial custody, that she had received rape and death threats and that three investigations had taken a severe toll on her mental health and well-being.

This is her second bail petition, the first was rejected on Tuesday evening and she was sent to judicial custody. Rhea Chakraborty’s petition for bail said she has not committed any crime whatsoever and has been falsely implicated in the case. During her custody, the plea said the applicant was coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions. With her application dated September 8, she formally retracted all such incriminatory confessions, Chakraborty said.

The sessions court in Mumbai heard the bail pleas of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik today. The court will pronounce orders on Rhea and Showik’s bail plea tomorrow.
