The Supreme Court has dismissed a petition filed by late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister, Priyanka Singh challenging the FIR of abetment to suicide registered against her in Mumbai on a complaint by actor Rhea Chakraborty. A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said, ‘We are not inclined to entertain. Dismissed.’ Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has now reacted to it and shared a statement saying, ‘We are overwhelmed by the order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court. Justice Prevails in India.’ He further added, ‘We bow down to the Judicial System in our Country. Truth Alone Triumphs. Satya Mev Jayate.’ Priyanka Singh had approached the Supreme Court after the Bombay high court on February 15 refused to quash the FIR against her while allowing the quashing of FIR against her sister Meetu Singh. In the FIR, Rhea Chakraborty has accused the two sisters of forging fake medical prescription for Sushant Singh Rajput and sought a probe against them for alleged abetment to suicide under Indian Penal Code Section 306 and other relevant provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. Earlier, the Narcotics Control Bureau had submitted a chargesheet against 33 persons, including actor Rhea Chakraborty, before a special court in Mumbai in connection with the drugs case filed following actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
