Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri Says Rhea Chakraborty's Arrest By NCB Is Not About Keeping Patriarchy Alive
Rhea Chakraborty got arrested on September 8 by the Narcotics Control Bureau. She was arrested for reportedly procuring drugs for her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput. She was interrogated for three consecutive days after which she was arrested and sent to 14-days judicial custody by the magistrate court. Post her arrest, many Bollywood stars came out in support of her and stated that 'let's smash the patriarchy.' Now, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has commented on it.

To Times Now, Union Minister for Housing & Urban Affairs (I/C), Civil Aviation (I/C) & MoS Commerce & Industry, Hardeep Singh Puri, stated that all the due processes are being followed by the investigating agencies and Rhea's arrest has nothing to do with keeping the patriarchy alive. He was quoted saying, "I don’t buy the patriarchy argument. There is a due process to the investigation which is being followed."

Post Rhea's arrest, celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Shibani Dandekar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Hansal Mehta, Anurag Kashyap, Huma Qureshi and others took to their respective social media handles to share "Roses are red, violets are blue, let's smash the patriarchy, me and you."


Sushant Singh Rajput died on June 14. He was reportedly found hanging in his bedroom by a ceiling fan. The cause of his suicide was earlier said to be depression. Later, his father filed an FIR against Rhea reportedly accusing her of abetment to suicide and more. The Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate then came into action.
