After the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput passed away in 2020, his girlfriend Riya Chakraborty had to go through a very tough time. During this time he was detained in Byculla Jail in Mumbai for around 28 days. Due to being a high profile case, Riya had to face things like NCB to media lawsuits. Recently, Sudha Bharadwaj, who was in jail with the actress, spoke openly about her last days in prison. Where he talks about Riya’s release from prison.
Sudha Bharadwaj is a human rights lawyer and trade unionist. He was arrested in the Bhima Koregaon case, he was released from prison in 2021, three years after the case. Recently, in an interview with the “News Laundry” media channel, Sudha spoke about Riya’s last days in prison. He told how the actress did not show any temper tantrums in prison and at the same time lived in harmony with the prisoners. Riya was released from prison after 28 days.
Sudha Bharadwaj, while talking about Riya Chakraborty’s 28 days, said – The actress had a very good behavior with other inmates in the prison. The prisoners were also very fond of Riya. Not only that, but when Riya was about to be released from prison, all the prisoners came to drop her off at the door.
Riya Chakraborty had to face a lot of problems at that time. Despite this, with the money she had left, she distributed sweets to all the prisoners and danced with everyone at the request of the prisoners.
Sudha Bharadwaj while praising Riya said: I would like to say one thing, it is very bad for any youngster in such a situation, they are very upset. But Riya used to take it all in a very sporty way. She was very friendly with other inmates and people in the prison. In addition, she was very kind to children.
Sudha further explains that – When the prisoner met Riya on the first day, everyone said the same thing to her – “Do you know how the people are here?” But Riya never made a problem with those things, and she never talked about them either. Every day she was in prison, she treated the prisoners well.
Talking about Riya, Sudha said – Sushant Singh Rajput’s speech was going fast. The media had gone completely mad. At that time, we used to say that Riya was a scapegoat, and we were very disappointed. I was very happy that Riya wasn’t brought into the main Barrett. He was kept in a special cell so he wouldn’t watch TV because people left it on in the main barracks. It’s very disturbing to hear about you in the media all the time, which hurts anyone to see.
