“Anyone could see Sushant Singh Rajput’s face and it shows him as a good man”. Bombay High Court praises the actor


Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Thursday praised the work of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput in “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story” and said that anyone could see the actor’s face and show that he was a good man.

A bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice MS Karnik made the remarks while preserving their verdict on the petition of Rajput sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh. The petition has sought the dismissal of the FIR lodged against Priyanka and Meetu for allegedly tampering with and misleading Sushant’s medical prescription.

Justice Shinde said, “Whatever may be the case …. anyone could have said by looking at the face of Sushant Singh Rajput that he was innocent and straight … and a good man.”

He said, “He was especially liked by everyone in the MS Dhoni film.” The Bandra police had registered a case on September 7 against Sushant’s sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh and Delhi’s doctor Tarun Kumar. The FIR was lodged based on a complaint by Rhea Chakraborty, a female friend of Rajput. Rhea claimed in her complaint that these people conspired and falsely consulted the use of banned drugs on the prescription of a government hospital and administered the drug to the actor without consulting its dosage and quantity.

It is noteworthy that Sushant was found dead on June 14, 2020, in his flat in Bandra, a suburb of Mumbai.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is investigating the case.

His father KK Singh, angered by the Mumbai Police’s investigation into Rajput’s death, had filed a case of abetment to suicide and criminal conspiracy against Rhea Chakraborty, his family members and others before the Bihar police. The Supreme Court handed over the case to the CBI.

Senior advocate Vikas Singh, appearing on behalf of Sushant’s sisters, argued on Thursday that the guidelines on ‘telemedicine practice’ allow the doctor to give a medical consultation after seeking online advice.

He said that due to Covid-19, Rajputs could not personally visit him to meet the doctor. Vikas Singh said that even if the medical prescription was purchased, there is no evidence that Rajput had consumed any medicine.

Senior advocate Devadatt Kamat, appearing for Mumbai Police, claimed that no online advice was taken in the matter. Kamat said that a conversation between Rajput and his sisters on WhatsApp on June 8, 2020, clearly shows that Priyanka received the form without consulting the doctor by the patient. Kamat said, “Police has evidence that an unidentified person went to the OPD of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on June 8, 2020. He took the token and later filed a letter with the accused doctor Tarun Kumar.”

Meanwhile, Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Manashinde requested the plea to be dismissed and said that a “dangerous mix of narcotics and drugs” could be one of the reasons for Rajput’s death.

The bench ordered the lawyers to make representations in writing and reserved their verdict.
