On Thursday, the Bombay High Court has praised the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s work in his film ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’ and said that one could make out from the actor’s face that he was a good human being.
The bench comprising of Justices S S Shinde and M S Karnik made the above remarks while reserving its verdict on a petition filed by Sushant Singh Rajput’s sisters i.e., Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh who sought to quash an FIR for alleged forgery and fabrication of a medical prescription for their brother.
“Whatever the case; from Sushant Singh Rajput’s face, one could make out that he was innocent, sober, and a good human being. Everybody liked him especially in that M S Dhoni film,” Justice Shinde said.
Based on the complaint from Sushant’s girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty, the suburban Bandra police has on 7th September registered an FIR against Priyanka Singh, Meetu Singh, and doctor Tarun Kumar of Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia hospital.
The FIR alleged that Sushant’s sisters and the doctor had prepared a forged and fabricated prescription for anti-depressants for their brother. Rhea claimed that his sisters had obtained a prescription for the drugs from the Delhi doctor, and had advised their brother to take them.
Further, she alleges that one of the circumstances that may have led to Rajput’s death was the “dangerous cocktail of drugs and narcotic substances and medicines”.
Sushant’s death and his father’s complaint
Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, was found dead in his suburban residence on 14 June 2020. His father KK Singh later lodged a case of abetment of suicide and cheating against Rhea Chakraborty and her family members. The case is being probed by the CBI.
The Bandra police, after registration of the FIR against Rajput’s sisters, forwarded the case papers to the CBI as per the directions from the Supreme Court, which had said that all cases pertaining to the death of Rajput shall be probed by the CBI.
