The Central Bureau of Investigation told HC that Rhea’s accusation is “mostly speculative”. Such speculation cannot be the basis of an FIR, the Central agency said in response to Rajput’s sisters’ petition seeking to quash the case lodged against them by Mumbai Police.
Now, the Mumbai Police filed an affidavit stating that they were “duty bound” to register the case as it “disclosed commission of offence.” The cops submitted the affidavit in the court and sought dismissal of the petition filed by Rajput’s sisters.
Now Rhea’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has released a statement which read, “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. The Bombay High Court is hearing the matter on Wednesday, 4th Nov 2020.”
According to a report, Justice S S Shinde and Justice M S Karnik will be hearing the matter.
