Actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is facing investigation over actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death and the related drugs probe by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), has opposed the petition filed by the late actor's sisters in the Bombay High Court. Sushant's sisters had filed a petition in the Bombay HC to quash the first information report (FIR) against them. Rhea Chakraborty filed an affidavit in the HC on Tuesday, October 27, in which she requested the court to not cancel the FIR against SSR's sisters, Priyanka and Meetu Singh.
In her petition, the actress alleged that Priyanka Singh and Dr Tarun Kumar had illegally prescribed medicines that contained psychotropic substances to Sushant Singh Rajput without consultation. According to Rhea Chakraborty's affidavit, Sushant had received WhatsApp messages from sister Priyanka containing the prescriptions on June 8, 2020, six days before the actor was found dead at his residence on June 14, 2020.
An FIR was registered against Sushant Singh Rajput's sisters upon the complaint filed by the actress. However, Priyanka and Meetu Singh filed a petition later, requesting the case to be quashed. Priyanka and Meetu Singh have also appealed to the Central Bureau of Investigation, who is handling the case currently, to not take any action against them.
However, Rhea Chakraborty who raised an objection against the petition filed by Sushant's sisters, stated that it needs to be investigated whether Sushant consumed the prescribed medicines, which may have deteriorated his mental health and contributed to his death. The actress has also requested the court to dismiss the petition filed by Priyanka and Meetu Singh, in her affidavit.
