NEW DELHI: After model-actress Rhea Chakraborty's complaint, the Mumbai Police have registered an FIR against Sushant Singh Rajput's sisters and others. The late actor's girlfriend claimed that the accused prescribed drugs to him without consultation.

In a six-page-long complaint filed on Monday night, the late actor's girlfriend has cited that Sushant passed away five day after he obtained a prescription wherein he was unlawfully prescribed certain drugs by his sisters and a doctor of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. A Mumbai official told PTI on Tuesday that an offence has been registered against Sushant's sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh, Delhi-based doctor Tarun Kumar and others.

The 28-year-old actress was at the Bandra Police station in Mumbai for nearly six-and-a-half hours, and filed the complaint. The case has been registered under sections of IPC and Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. The case has been registered under sections 420, 464, 465, 466, 468, 474, 306, 120(B) and 34 of IPC and sections 8(c), 21, 22(A) and 29 of NDPS Act, a Mumbai police spokesperson told PTI.


Rhea in her complaint claimed these persons hatched a conspiracy and obtained false prescription on the letterhead of a government hospital for banned medicines and administered the same to the actor without supervising doses and quantity.


In her police complaint, Rhea had sought that an FIR be registered under IPC, NDPS Act and Telemedicine Practice Guidelines. She had also accused Priyanka of molesting her.

Rhea had also accused them of forgery and preparing a "fake" prescription of medicines for anxiety for the late 34-year-old actor, who was found hanging in his apartment in suburban Bandra on June 14.

In accordance with orders of the Supreme Court, the case has been transferred to CBI for further investigation.

Earlier on Monday, Rhea was at the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) office, and was questioned about the drug nexus for eight hours, according to a report by Times Now.

After a long day, the VJ-turned-actress will again mark her attendance at the NCB office today for third round of questioning.
