In Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case, the prime accused Rhea Chakraborty had filed a complaint on September 7 against the late actor’s sisters for forgery and giving medication to SSR which were wrongly prescribed. The FIR was registered by Bandra police and was later transferred to the CBI.
However, now Sushant’s sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh have filed a petition in the Bombay High Court to seek the quashing of FIR registered by Rhea Chakraborty against them. The division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justise M S Karnik heard this petition through video conferencing.
Advocate Madhav Thorat is representing Sushant’s sisters and he told the Bombay High Court during the hearing, “The FIR has also been registered after inordinate delay of 90 days without explanation. The Petitioners therefore, by this Writ Petition seeks to quash and set aside cognizable offences registered by Bandra Police Station, vide F.I.R. No. 576 dated 07.09.2020 and seek remedy for malicious prosecution.”
However, Advocate Deepal Thakkar and Satish Maneshinde representing Rhea Chakraborty told the division bench of the Court that they were informed about the petition on Monday late night and they needed time to file written statements.
Justice Shinde said that there’s no urgency in the matter as it has not even been one month, so now, the hearing of the case will be on October 13.
For the unversed, Rhea Chakraborty filed the FIR against Sushant’s sisters and claimed that the sisters along with some doctors hatched a conspiracy and obtained a false prescription containing banned medicines and annexed the same without supervising dose and quantity which may have resulted into a chronic anxiety attack and resulted in actor’s suicide.
Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead on June 14 in his apartment in Bandra, Mumbai.
