Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Monday dismissed an FIR filed by Rhea Chakraborty against the sisters of Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Mitu Singh, in which the late actor’s Priyanka Singh had put the sisters into medicine without advice.
However, the High Court held a case against Priyanka Singh. Apart from the sisters, a doctor from Delhi has also named the alleged complicity case with him and the case against him survived.
The petition was moved by Rajput’s girlfriend and Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty in September last year. She had also lodged an FIR with the Bandra Police Station regarding the same case.
Chakraborty in her complaint named Priyanka Singh, Mita Singh and Delhi-based Dr. of Manohar Lohia Hospital Tarun Kumar was accused of forging a prescription of medicines that were prohibited under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985, and prescribing them to Sushant Singh Rajput.
Meanwhile, the sisters of Rajput requested the High Court to quash the FIR. Rajput’s lawyer Vikas Singh had said that the complaint against the sisters and others was illegal and they would take serious action in the case.
In their plea in the court, Priyanka and Mita Singh claimed that the FIR was lodged on the basis of media reports and the complaint was filled with material irregularities and discrepancies.
They also claimed that there was a 90-day delay in filing the complaint as the drugs were prescribed on 8 June and the complaint was lodged on 7 September.
The late Bollywood actor was found dead at his Bandra residence in Mumbai on June 14 last year. His death was initially treated as suicide by the Mumbai Police but a long saga ensued after Rajput’s family members alleged murder and involvement of his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty.
