Mumbai: Actress Rhea Chakraborty has requested the Bombay High Court not to quash the FIR lodged against Priyanka and Meetu, the sisters of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The actress told the court that her two sisters conspired with a doctor named Tarun Kumar to get false prescriptions to give some medicines to Sushant, who consumed drugs and died after five days.
The actress said these things in an affidavit filed before a bench of Justice Sambhaji Shinde and Makarand Karnik, along with the petitions filed by Sushant’s sisters-Meetu and Priyanka Singh-to quash the FIR lodged at the behest of Chakravarthy.
In a detailed affidavit filed through her lawyer Satish Maneshinde, the actress has revealed that Priyanka had sent a prescription to Sushant, who was in depression, a week earlier, to commit suicide.
“I explained to Sushant that given the seriousness of his condition and the fact that he had already been prescribed medicines by doctors who had been screened and treated by doctors for several months, he wanted no more medicines, less All medicines are being prescribed by her sister, who has no medical qualifications. I warned her that she could tell about her ongoing drug habit, as well as the wrong habit of smoking cigarettes involving cannabis and the serious impact it would have on her mental well-being,” she said.
According to Rhea, the co-accused of New Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, Dr. Tarun Kumar sent a prescription to Sushant’s cell phone. “Co-accused Dr. Tarun has been prescribed medication prescribed for Sushant without mandatory consultation by law. In fact, the medicines prescribed by him were prohibited from being prescribed electronically under the Telemedicine Practice Guidelines,” she claimed in an affidavit.
“Sushant died just 5 days after receiving the said prescription, in which he was given illegal narcotics at the behest of his sister and Dr. Kumar. Given the investigation into Sushant’s death and circumstances of his death, It is imperative that the actions of her sisters and doctors and other known and unknown persons, who conspired to preserve such controlled substances, should be thoroughly investigated, ”the affidavit states.
The affidavit further states that it is necessary to examine the aspect of whether Sushant prescribed drugs in such a way that ‘may have contributed to his death and/or further deteriorated his mental health’, the actress explained.
The judges have ordered Sushant’s sisters and the doctor to file their say in the matter. The bench would take up the matter for further hearing on November 4.
