Even as Rhea Chakraborty continues to be grilled endlessl, first by the CBI, and now the Narcotics Control Bureau, the actress has launched a parallel forgery complaint against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh and Delhi-based doctor Tarun Kumar of Ram Manohar Lohia hospital. Chakraborty approached the Bandra police station and filed a forgery complaint today under section IPC 1860, NDPS Act and Tele Medicine Practice Guidelines 2020. Chakraborty’s complain pertains to Priyanka Singh recommending certain anti-depressants to Rajput and getting a prescription later from Delhi doctor Tarun Kumar.

Advocate Vikas Singh, the family lawyer of Sushant Singh Rajput has dismissed the complain as another attempt by Chakraborty to derail the investigation. Singh reckoned that the Jalebi [2018] actress has committed another offence by filing a false case.

“This is an attempt to keep the jurisdiction of the Mumbai police alive. when the Supreme Court has clearly ruled that any case that has connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput case, should only be carried out by the CBI. This is not even a cognizable offence for the police to even accept any complaint,” Singh said in a press conference.

Singh defended Priyanka Singh and assured that the family has not committed any offence and the tele consultation was within the guidelines of medical council of India. He also emphasized that the Mumbai police has no right to decide whether the tele consultation was adhered to or not.

‘This is offence under Section 182 of the IPC. If you make a false complain, which is not tenable in law, the person is liable for six months punishment. Rhea has committed another mistake by filing such a [false] complaint. There is no criminality involved. This is another attempt to derail the ongoing investigation against her,’ said Vikas Singh.

The advocate expressed surprise at Rhea’s complaint. According to Singh, in her statement [presumably to the CBI or Mumbai police], she had cited Priyanka’s recommending medicines to her brother as the reason why she walked out of Sushant Singh Rajput’s home. Singh asserted that Chakraborty is now claiming that she came to know about this [Priyanka recommending medicines] recently that contradicts her own statement.
