Rhea's legal team headed by senior advocate Satish Maneshinde slammed central agencies for "hounding" a lone woman "just because she was in love with a drug addict". Terming the arrest as 'travesty of justice', Rhea's lawyer Satish Maneshinde said, "Three central agencies are hounding a woman just because she was in love with a drug addict, who was suffering from mental health issues for several years under the care of 5 leading psychiatrists in Mumbai and he ended up committing suicide due to consumption of illegally administered medicines and used drugs."

The NCB had started its inquiries based on WhatsApp chats retrieved from Rhea's phone, which revealed conversations around procuring drugs.

On September 5, Rhea's brother Showik Chakraborty, Sushant's home manager Samuel Miranda, his house helper Dipesh Sawant were arrested and sent to the NCB custody till September 9 (Wednesday).
