Mumbai, October 28
The CBI on Wednesday told the Bombay High Court that Rhea Chakraborty’s accusation that late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sisters obtained a fake medical prescription for him was “mostly speculative”.
“Such speculation cannot be the basis of an FIR,” the Central agency said in response to Rajput’s sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh’s petition seeking to quash the case lodged against them by the Mumbai Police.
Chakraborty, Rajput’s girlfriend, has alleged that a fabricated prescription was used to help him procure medicines banned under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act only a few days before his death in June.
“The allegations in the present FIR are mostly presumptive and speculative in nature,” the CBI said.
The CBI also pointed out that it is probing the complaint filed by Rajput’s father KK Singh against Chakraborty and her family members for allegedly abetting the actor’s death.
Rajput’s sisters filed the petition through advocate Madhav Thorat on October 6 seeking that the FIR filed against them by Bandra Police here be quashed. — PTI
