The FIR says that the accused “hatched a conspiracy and obtained false prescription on the letterhead of a government hospital for a banned medicine which is annexed under the NDPS Act and administered the same without supervising doses and quantity which may result in a chronic anxiety attack and which resulted in the commission of suicide.”

Rhea's lawyer Satish Maneshinde said that the FIR filed under sections 420 ,464,465,466,468,474,306 r/w 120B /34 IPC AND Sec 8(1),21,22 ,29 of NDPS Act has been been transferred to the CBI as per orders by the Supreme Court.

On Monday, Rhea Chakraborty had filed a complaint before Mumbai Police against Priyanka Singh, Dr Tarun Kumar and others for having sent a 'bogus medical prescription' to Sushant.

Rhea's complaint was based on an exchange between Sushant and Priyanka on 8 June, six days before Sushant passed away. As per the messages, Priyanka is seen recommending medicines for anxiety to her brother and even arranging for a prescription.
