Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, a famous Bollywood star, was discovered dead at his home.Mumbai: Days after the CBI contradicted a FIR documented against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sisters on Rhea Chakraborty’s objection in the Bombay High Court, marking it as “vitiated and bad in law”, the Mumbai Police on Monday told the court the grumbling “disclosed commission of offence”.In a sworn statement recorded in the court, the police said it was “duty-bound” to document the FIR (first data report), excusing the charges that it was attempting to harm the standing of the 34- year-old actor – discovered dead at his Bandra home in June – or his sisters. The police presented the oath in the court, looking for excusal of the appeal documented by Sushant Rajput’s sisters – Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh – to suppress the argument against them.”The FIR was registered based on the information provided by the first informant (Rhea Chakraborty), disclosing commission of offence,” the sworn statement read, focusing on that “a fake medical prescription was sent by the petitioners with the help of a Delhi-based doctor wherein medicines for anxiety were prescribed to Rajput”.”This may have led to administration of psychotropic substances without actual examination of Rajput by the doctor, and may have caused and contributed in his suicidal death. This version of the informant disclosed cognisable offences warranting investigation and requiring no preliminary enquiry. Therefore, the Mumbai police were duty-bound to register the FIR,” the court was told.Last week, Rhea Chakraborty – confronting various examinations over the death of actor Sushant Rajput – had asked the Bombay High Court not to excuse the body of evidence against his two sisters.Her protest, she has stated, depends on WhatsApp messages between the actor and his sister on June 8 – six days before he was discovered dead. The talks demonstrated that Priyanka Singh had encouraged her sibling to take three meds – Librium, Mexito and Lonazep – which are endorsed for gloom and uneasiness. The visits, which surfaced in the media days prior, demonstrated that in spite of their cases, his family knew about his emotional wellness problems.A day later, the CBI said the charges by Rhea Chakraborty against the (***************’s) sisters are “presumptive and speculative” and could well have been essential for the continuous examination. The Mumbai Police, in any case, on Monday explained in the court it’s making an effort not to “influence or derail” the CBI probe.”The CBI is conducting investigation meticulously and professionally without being hindered by any external factor and would thoroughly look into each and every aspect relating to the death of Late Sushant Singh Rajput in a fair and impartial manner,” the focal test office had told the High Court last week.Sushant Singh Rajput, 34, a mainstream Bollywood star, was discovered dead in his loft in Mumbai on June 14. His family has charged Rhea Chakraborty, who was dating him and left his home on June 8, of intellectually pestering him, utilizing his cash and assuming a part in his death.(With contributions from PTI)
