On Friday, March 26, Supreme Court has dismissed the plea filled by Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh to cancel the First Information Report (FIR) lodged by Rhea Chakraborty.
The plea was heard by a bench comprising of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.
Bombay High Court on 15th February observed that there was a prima facie case found against Sushant Singh Rajput’s sister Priyanka Singh, in the FIR lodged against her by Rhea Chakraborty alleging criminal conspiracy and abetment to suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput. However, the Bombay HC dismissed the FIR against Neetu Singh, who is another sister of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Bombay High Court bench comprising Justice SS Shinde and Justice MS Karnik observed that, “There is prima facie case found against Priyanka Singh and there should not be any impediment against investigation against her,” as quoted by LiveLaw.
A team from AIIMs has already submitted its report to investigating agency CBI, stating that the late actor died due to hanging. But the CBI is yet to finalise its final report in the high class case.
