Sushant’s untimely death has led to shockwaves in the industry. He died by suicide on June 14 at his Bandra residence. After that, rumoured girlfriend Rhea was subjected to online hate with users blaming her for Rajput’s suicide.
The 28-year-old actor eventually disabled the comments section of her Instagram page.
Sharing a screenshot of a hate message she received on Instagram, Chakraborty said while she had ignored many abusive texts sent to her in the past month, the harassment was now unbearable.
“I was called a gold digger. I kept quiet. I was called a murderer. I kept quiet, I was slut-shamed, I kept quiet. But how does my silence give you the right to tell me that you will get me raped and murdered if I don’t commit suicide @mannu_raaut?” the actor wrote tagging one of the accounts from which she received a threat.
No one should be subjected to this kind of “toxicity and harassment”, she added. “I request @cyber_crime_helpline @cybercrimeindia to please take necessary action.bEnough is enough,” she wrote.
