MUMBAI: Actor Rhea Chakraborty, in response to quashing a petition filed by the sisters of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, said the actor died "just five days after "one of his sisters acquired a" fabricated prescription" that prescribed psychotropic substances unlawfully. She said their actions needed to be investigated. She said that such an investigation was "imperative" to verify whether Rajput took the drugs "which could have led to his death or further affected his mental health." She said she had been hounded by the actor's family and TV networks, refusing an effort to tarnish their image. She said that she was receiving threats of death and rape daily. On the grounds of Rhea The actor's former girlfriend sought dismissal of the plea in a 30-page reply to the petition filed by Rajput 's sisters, Priyanka and Meetu Singh, submitted via her lawyer Satish Maneshinde, and "vehemently denied allegations of working hand in glove with Mumbai police or any other agency." She said it was "preposterous" to say that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had lodged the lawsuit to escape arrest.
She claimed that the acts of Priyanka and Dr Tarun Kumar violated the provisions of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, and the Telemedicine Practice Guidelines, 2020, in prescribing psychotropic drugs without consultation or review. "The prescription prepared by them in connivance with each other is a fabricated and false document provided that the same reflects Sushant as an OPD patient when Sushant was in Mumbai and not in New Delhi on the date and time at which the said prescription was sent," her reply said. She also said it was shocking that a cardiologist, Dr. Kumar, had prescribed psychotropic drugs to a person he had never met and had not known.
"There is nothing to suggest that there was any teleconference between Sushant and the accused doctor." Rhea Chakraborty also called for an investigation into the "conduct of the petitioners, Dr Kumar, and other known and unknown individuals who conspired to prescribe such controlled substances to Sushant." She said in her complaint that she made a "solid prima facie case against the sisters. Because inquiries are in a 'nascent stage,' she rejected their quashing petition. The HC demanded a reply from the Centre and the state governments and posted the matter for November 4.
