Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh have been named in an FIR by Rhea Chakraborty. In her FIR, Rhea had accused Rajput’s sisters of procuring 'fake medical prescription' for the late actor through telemedicine, without consulting a professional.
In the latest development, the Bombay High Court has quashed the FIR against Meetu Singh. On the other hand, the HC has refused to quash the FIR against Priyanka Singh, another sister of Sushant Singh Rajput and ordered an investigation.
As per Live Law, the Bombay HC's Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik presided over the bench. Their Bench held, "There is prima facie case found against Priyanka Singh and there should not be any impediment against investigation against her."
In September, Rhea Chakraborty had filed an FIR against Priyanka Singh and a Delhi based doctor Dr Tarun Kumar for illegally prescribing medicines containing psychotropic substances without consultation to late Sushant Singh Rajput. Rhea alleges that the medicines may have resulted into a chronic anxiety attack leading to Sushant's suicide.
The FIR was based on a six-page complaint against Priyanka, Meetu, and DR Tarun Kumar from RML Hospital in New Delhi, and registered under various sections of the IPC and NDPS Act.
The Rajput sisters had then filed a petition to quash the FIR filed by Rhea against them. In the petition filed through advocate Madhav Thorat, Sushant’s sisters have claimed that the medicines are not banned and the guidelines issued by the Medical Council of India (MCI) on April 11, for telemedicine “allows the medicine to be prescribed to a patient even at the first consultation”.
Earlier today, Sushant's sister Shweta Singh Kirti penned an emotional post for her late brother as she shared a smiling picture of him and wrote, “Kahan chala gaya baby?? Just come back... it has been 8 months...haven’t seen you or heard from you.... Please, come back!!”
Sushant Singh Rajput was found hanging on June 14, 2020, at his Bandra home in Mumbai. His untimely demise is being investigated by top agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation, Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Control Bureau.
