Sushant Singh Rajput’s family may approach Bombay High Court against Rhea Chakraborty’s FIR. Rhea filed an FIR against the late actor’s sister Priyanka, Dr Tarun Kumar of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and others for wrongly administering drugs to the late actor at the Bandra Police Station yesterday. A case was registered under Sections 420, 464, 465, 466, 468, 474, 306 r/w 120B/34 of the IPC and Sections 8(1), 21, 22, 29 of the NDPS Act.
Rhea Chakraborty filed an FIR at the Bandra Police Station yesterday against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka, Dr Tarun Kumar of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and others for forging a prescription and administering drugs to the late actor. The late actor’s family lawyer, Vikas Singh termed the FIR “illegal” because as per the Supreme Court’s order, no third-party agency can register a fresh case given that the matter is already under CBI’s jurisdiction. Based on this technicality, SSR’s family may move the Bombay High Court to quash the FIR entirely.
Today, a senior Mumbai police official, refuting Vikas Singh’s claim, said that anyone can register a case, however, considering CBI has been charged with the investigation, this case will also be transferred to the central investigation agency. As per latest reports, Rhea’s case has also been transferred to the CBI.
In a press conference, Sushant Singh Rajput’s family lawyer Vikas Singh called Rhea Chakraborty’s FIR baseless. He also said that Bandra Police Station seems to be Rhea’s second home and she runs to it whenever she feels like. Vikas Singh also alleged that Bandra police and Mumbai police, in general, is favouring Rhea, otherwise, they wouldn’t have registered a case, going against the Supreme Court’s ruling that only allows the CBI to register fresh cases in this matter now.
Narcotics Control Bureau’s Special Investigation Team has prepared a list of 25 top Bollywood celebrities who are related to the drug cartel currently under investigation, as part of the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.

The electronic devices seized from arrested drug peddlers also establishes a Bollywood connection and corroborates Rhea and Showik’s claims.
Summons, based on this dossier, will soon be sent out to the 25 people on the list.
