The plea by the two seeks to quash an FIR filed by Rhea Chakraborty, claiming that they procured a “fake medical prescription” for their brother via telemedicine without consultations.
The sisters’ advocate sought an adjournment.
The Mumbai police registered the FIR on a complaint filed by Rhea in September. According to reports, the FIR is against Rajput’s sisters – Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh – and a doctor for forging a prescription of medicines supposedly for anxiety prohibited under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.
Reports claimed that the medicines were procured shortly before the actor’s tragic demise on June 14.
Rajput, 34, was found hanging at his Bandra residence. While initial reports suggested that it was a case of suicide, Rajput’s family alleged that the actor was ‘murdered’. The case that was being investigated by the Mumbai police for over a month, was handed over to the CBI who joined forces with the NCB and the ED to probe the matter from all angles.
A recent report by the forensic team of All India Institute of Medical Sciences reportedly ruled out the ‘murder’ angle in the case. The CBI, however, has still to reveal its findings in the matter.
