Meanwhile, Rhea had filed a fresh complaint against the late actor’s sister Priyanka Singh, a doctor at Ram Manohar Lohia and some others, alleging forgery. After an eight-hour grilling session on Monday by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), the actress reached the Police Station to file her FIR, In her six-page long complaint, the actress shared that Sushant passed away five days after he obtained a prescription wherein “he was unlawfully prescribed psychotropic substances at the behest of his sister Priyanka”. As per the Supreme Court initial order, the actress’ FIR has been transferred to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The family as well as the family’s lawyer Vikas Singh reacted to the FIR and said that it will not break their will to seek justice for the actor. Sushant’s sister Shweta Singh Kirti tweeted, “Nothing’s gonna break us, definitely not this fake FIR!” On the other hand, senior advocate Vikas Singh said, “Mumbai police shall not accept any such complaint as it would be a clear violation of the Supreme Court’s order. The order clearly prohibits any other agency apart from CBI from registering any new complaint in this case.”
