What is Rhea’s case against Sushant’s sisters?

In August last year, Rhea Chakraborty registered a complaint with the Mumbai Police against Priyanka Singh who lived with Sushant Singh Rajput for a few days. The complaint was based on a WhatsApp conversation dated June 8, 2020, in which Priyanka had allegedly prescribed three medicines – Librium, Mexito, and Lonazep – without any formal prescription from the doctor. All the medicines are usually prescribed for depression and anxiety. However, these medicines are banned under the NDPS Act, and none of them can be bought without a formal prescription.

Rhea also mentioned in her complaint that as opposed to the SSR’s family’s claims that they weren’t aware of his mental condition, sister Priyanka was aware and that’s why she allegedly fabricated the prescription on WhatsApp for her brother.

What did Priyanka Singh tell the court about the FIR against her by Rhea Chakraborty?

Priyanka Singh’s lawyer argued in the SC on Friday that there was no evidence that SSR had taken the medicine as mentioned Rhea’s complaint. The lawyer also claimed that the doctor whom Priyanka consulted was qualified to prescribe drugs through consultation over the phone.

Meanwhile, both Rhea and her brother Showik Chakraborty are currently out on a bail on the drugs case related to the SSR death case.
