Mumbai Police: Sushant’s mental health may have deteriorated after sisters gave medicines

BizAsia Correspondent



Mumbai Police has filed an affidavit in Bombay High Court in response to a petition filed by Sushant Singh Rajput’s sisters, Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh.

The news comes after Rhea Chakraborty had filed an FIR against the sisters in September claiming they had forged and obtained prescription for depression and anxiety for the actor. The sisters have since filed a petition to quash the petition. However, Mumbai Police has hit back defending the way it initially handled the case.

According to Live Law, the affidavit partly read, “FIR lodged at Mumbai seeks investigation into alleged offence of conspiracy, forgery, cheating and conspiracy by petitioners sisters of Sushant Singh Rajput, Dr Tarun Kumar and others for fabricating medical prescription to procure and administer controlled drugs/psychotropic substances to Sushant Singh Rajput without his actual examination. FIR also seeks investigations into the possibility of deterioration of his mental health and eventual suicide pursuant to the said conspiracy.”

It added, “This version of the informant disclosed cognisable offences warranting investigation and requiring no preliminary enquiry. Therefore, the Mumbai Police were duty-bound to register the FIR.”
