The CBI had called Rhea Chakraborty’s FIR against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sisters – ‘vitiated’ and ‘bad in law’, supporting their petition to quash it.
However, Mumbai Police has now replied to Bombay High Court, saying they were ‘duty-bound’ to register Rhea’s complaint as it “disclosed commission of the offence”.
As per DNA report, in an affidavit filed by Bandra police’s senior inspector Nikhil Kapse, Mumbai Police has urged the Court to dismiss SSR’s sisters’ petition to quash the case against them.
They have also refuted allegations that they were trying to ‘destroy the reputation of the deceased’.
In her FIR, Rhea had accused Sushant’s sisters Meetu Singh and Priyanka Singh of helping the actor illegally access anxiety drugs using fake prescriptions from Dr Tarun Kumar in Delhi.
Mumbai Police stressed in their affidavit that the fake prescription and the medicine procured might have contributed to Sushant’s suicidal death.
“A fake medical prescription was sent by the petitioners with the help of a Delhi-based doctor wherein medicines for anxiety were prescribed to Rajput. This may have led to the administration of psychotropic substances without actual examination of Rajput by the doctor and may have caused and contributed in his suicidal death.”
Thus, Mumbai Police concluded saying that since this version of events put forth ‘cognisable offences’ which warranted investigation and required no preliminary enquiry, they had filed the FIR.
Rhea’s Lawyer Reveals Why Rhea’s Exit From SSR’s House Was ‘Inevitable’
Rhea Chakraborty’s Lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, too has released a statement, revealing why her exit from Sushant’s house was ‘inevitable’.
“The FIR filed by Rhea Chakraborty was for a specific offence of having forged a prescription and administered illegally, medicines which were already communicated to Sushant Singh Rajput by Priyanka Singh in her messages on 8th June 2020.
When SSR expressed his inability to obtain them without a prescription as communicated by him in his messages, the sister obtained a fraudulent prescription from a known doctor who is not a Mental Health Expert who without any consultation prescribed medicines falling under NDPS Act by falsely depicting that SSR was a OPD registered person, when SSR was very much in Mumbai. Those medicines were administered more so when the family was aware that SSR was addicted to Drugs and under treatment at Mumbai.
SSR was consulting 5 Doctors in Mumbai who had advised him to abstain from Narcotic Substances as he was being treated for Mental Health issues.
Since SSR refused to accede to Rhea’s suggestion to follow the advice of the Mumbai Doctors, her departure from SSR home was inevitable, as per the wishes of SSR. The Replies filed by CBI and Mumbai Police are before you all. It is for the Nation to Determine who is carrying out their duties according to law and who is colluding with whom. Satya Meva Jayate.”
