The Supreme Court rejected the petition recorded by Priyanka Singh, sister of late bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, testing a Bombay High Court order which declined to subdue the case documented against her by Mumbai Police following a complaint from entertainer Rhea Chakraborty. The three bench judge presided by the Chief Justice of India, S.A. Bobde and including Justices A.S. Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian stated that, “We are not inclined to engage this request.”

Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, appearing on behalf of Priyanka, contended that the High court has exceeded its powers by looking at charges which were set before the police through media documents. Priyanka’s request said it is appropriate to take note of the fact that Rhea’s whole case depends on media documents and files and it does not present any validity with regards to the
source or genuineness of such reports.

The petition further read that, “The court in the matter between Dr. B. Singh versus Union of India [(2004) 3 SCC 363] has explicitly held that media reports are not permissible as proof, and accordingly, it tends to be held that there is no case or argument against the said applicant.”

Rhea, in her plaint based on which the First Information Report was recorded, had asserted that the sisters plotted with Tarun Kumar, a doctor by profession, to acquire illegal medicines administered them to the late entertainer. The Bombay High Court had observed that there was at prima facie argument found against Singh in the complaint registered by Rhea.

Additionally, the High court subdued the procedures against Sushant’s other sister Meetu Singh, who was also named as an accused in the matter.
“This lead of Respondent No. 1 (Maharashtra government) shows that the current first information report was enrolled on same day with no request and is smeared with malice intentions and retribution as Respondent (Rhea) is herself blamed in the matter for the demise entertainer Sushant Singh Rajput documented by father of Petitioner in FIR No. 241 of 2020 at P.S. Rajiv Nagar at Patna,” added the supplication.

The request then argued that it is surprising that the Hon’ble High Court had recorded a case against Tarun Kumar, who is a senior cardiologist working in RML Hospital at Delhi and was absent from the court proceedings The plea additionally stated that “it is important to mention that the medicine was given in accordance to the MCI Regulations and Telemedicine Practice Guidelines and Telepsychiatry Operational Guidelines, where it is allowed to clinical expert to recommend medication through tele-consultation and furthermore through a guardian.”
