Actor Rhea Chakraborty on Tuesday requested the Bombay High Court to dismiss a plea filed by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s two sisters, Priyanka and Meetu Singh, to quash the FIR filed against them.
Rhea had accused Priyanka Singh and a Delhi doctor for illegally prescribing medicines containing psychotropic substances, without any consultation. Rajput died a week after his sister asked him to take the medicines. Rhea also mentioned the text exchanges between Sushant and his sister which prove that he didn’t consult a doctor before he started consuming the medicines.
Rhea has submitted a 30-page reply and has opposed the petition filed by Sushant’s sisters Priyanka and Meetu Singh seeking quashing of FIR filed against them by Rhea.

Rhea has mentioned that “The drugs prescribed by the co-accused Dr. Kumar were prohibited from being prescribed electronically under the Telemedicine Practice Guidelines issued on 25th March 2020, which constitutes Appendix 5 of the Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics Regulation, 2002).”
Rhea’s affidavit also states that in January 2020, Sushant Singh Rajput visited Chandigarh to meet his family. Upon returning, he said he was discontinuing his medications and treatment.
“The investigation in respect of the present crime is at a nascent stage and the probe agency ought to be given sufficient time to conduct a proper investigation in regard to such serious offences,” Rhea said in her reply.
Sushant’s sisters have now requested the Bombay High Court for an early hearing of their petition, fearing an arrest.
