Over 2500 people which includes many Bollywood celebrities have signed an open letter addressed to the media in which they condemn the way the media has covered the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, particularly in relation to the vilification of Rhea Chakraborty.

As of now, Chakraborty has been arrested by the NCB for allegedly procuring drugs for Rajput who died on the 14th of June.

“Hunt news, not women,” the letter says, adding: “We write to ask you, the news media, to stop this unfair witch hunt of Rhea Chakraborty and to stop fuelling moral polarities of good women to be deified and bad women to be crucified which endangers all women.”

The letter was published on a blog called Feminist Voices. Directors Anurag Kashyap, Gauri Shinde, Zoya Akhtar, and actor Sonam Kapoor are among the signatories. 60 organizations have also endorsed the letter.
