Sushant Singh Rajput’s circle of relatives lawyer Vikas Singh Monday alleged that actress Rhea Chakraborty’s complaint with Mumbai Police is a ploy to derail ongoing CBI investigation and retain the role of state police alive in the matter. Rhea has filed a complaint with the Mumbai Police accusing Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh and a Delhi-based doctor of forgery and preparing a “fake” prescription of medicines for anxiety.
Singh said Mumbai police does not have any correct in this matter and this have been done to retain the jurisdiction of the Mumbai police alive. “The complaint is itself an offence. This can be a ploy to derail and deflect the investigation. This is an attempt to retain Mumbai police alive in the case in order that they are able to do a little mischief and make sure that the circle of relatives of Sushant does not get justice in this matter,” he told reporters.
In her complaint sent to the Bandra police here on Sunday, Chakraborty sought that Priyanka Singh and Dr Tarun Kumar, working with Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in New Delhi, be booked under applicable sections of the Indian Penal Code for forgery, the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act and the Telemedicine Practice Guidelines Singh said that there will also be no FIR in this matter and complaint isn’t maintainable as the Police does not have jurisdiction.
The senior advocate said the investigation in the case has been handed over to the CBI by the Supreme Court and the state police cannot see if Telemedicine Practice Guidelines have been violated or not. Rajput, 34, used to be found deceased at his apartment on June 14 following which the Mumbai Police had lodged an Accidental Death Outline (ADR).
