The lawyer was quoted by Hindustan Times claiming that Rhea is innocent and has not applied for anticipatory bail.
Rhea was summoned by the probe agency in the morning which said that it wants to ascertain the roles of the actress, her brother Showik and Miranda in this alleged drug racket as it has obtained mobile phone chat records and other electronic data that suggested some banned drugs were allegedly being procured by these people. On being asked about the charge that Rhea's family is making that they are being subjected to vilification by the media, Singh said: "I do not know if this vilification or some kind of support".
