Earlier this week on Monday, actor Swara Bhasker had also tweeted in support of Rhea. Quoting a tweet of a Congress leader in Lok Sabha, she had written, "Well done sir!" with applause emojis and hashtag "Release Rhea Chakraborty."
The Congress leader wrote in his tweet, "We are all pained by the expiry of Sushant ji but he cannot be honoured by falsely implicating a lady as an accused, I have earlier said that Rhea Chakraborty was an innocent lady, she should be released without further harassment to her, she has been the victim of Political conspiracy."

Despite speculation, the CBI is yet to give its verdict and has said that the probe is still going on. "CBI investigation related to the death of Sushant Singh Rajput is still continuing and all the aspects are being looked into meticulously."
