Rhea Chakraborty on ‘media trial’ after Bollywood star’s death

Just two months after Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead in his Mumbai apartment, his actress girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty has found herself at the centre of a vicious hate campaign led by some of India’s most high-profile journalists and social media trolls.

Last month, Chakraborty posted on Instagram a screen grab of a message from a person claiming to be a fan of Rajput’s, threatening her with rape and murder and urging her to “commit suicide otherwise I will send people to kill you”.

Under the post she wrote: “I was called a gold digger, I kept quiet. I was called a murderer, I kept quiet. I was slut shamed, I kept quiet.” She pleaded for help from the cyber crime police.
