Rhea Chakraborty’s FIR against Sushant Rajput’s sister not cancelled by SC

Actor Rhea Chakraborty’s case against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh will not be cancelled, the Supreme Court said on Friday. The CBI has to take over a Mumbai Police FIR against Priyanka Singh and investigate allegations that she faked a prescription to help the actor access banned medication. Last month, the Bombay High Court had endorsed the case against Priyanka Singh but had dismissed another against Sushant Singh Rajput’s other sister Mitu Singh. Both cases were based on the complaint of Rhea Chakraborty, who had dated Sushant Singh Rajput.

The CBI will take over the investigation against Priyanka Singh because the Supreme Court had earlier ruled that all FIRs related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death will be investigated only by the central investigation agency. The CBI had waited for a decision of the Supreme Court, which said today it was “not inclined to interfere”. The sisters were accused of forgery and violation of the NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Act based on complaints by Rhea Chakraborty, who is being investigated by multiple agencies after his family accused her of having a role in his death last June.
