The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal filed by the sister of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Priyanka Singh challenging the Bombay High Court order which had kept the FIR lodged against her pending. The matter was heard by a Bench of Chief Justice of India SA Bobde and Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian. Senior Advocate Vikas Singh today said that no illegal medicines were prescribed by the doctor to Sushant Singh Rajput. However, the Court dismissed the plea.
Complaint on the basis of which the FIR was filed was, actress Rhea Chakraborty had alleged that the sisters conspired with Dr. Tarun Kumar to obtain a false prescription for administering banned medicines to the late actor. It has been stated that Dr Tarun Kumar had the requisite qualification and the authority to prescribe the alleged drugs.
The Bombay High Court had held that there is prima facie case against Priyanka Singh and there should not be any impediment on the investigation against her. Meetu and Priyanka had sought an investigation into the malicious and malafide activities of the Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government, for which they had sought damages under public law. They had contended that Chakraborty’s FIR brought forth a different chain of events than what was being claimed by Rajput’s family and those circumstances should be examined as it could give answers to the cause of the actor's death. Singh's appeal was filed by Advocate on Record Nitin Saluja.
