Sushant’s family lawyer Vikas Singh had arrived in Mumbai for the physical hearing of the case. According to ANI report, On January 7, Bombay High Court reserved its order on an application filed by SSR’s sisters seeking quashing of FIR filed by Rhea. The actress had alleged SSR’s sisters involvement in his death. The Court has now asked all the parties to file their written submissions within a week. The bench comprised of Justices MS Karnik and SS Shinde.

“From his face, one can make out that he was an innocent and sober and very good human being. Even in MS Dhoni. Everybody likes him, especially in that film,” Justice Shinde remarked about the late actor during the hearing as per Bar & Bench report.

In her FIR, Rhea had accused SSR’s sister of prescribing medicines to the late actor without any consultation. The actress had also named Delhi’s Ram Manohar Lohia hospital in her FIR and accused them all obtaining a fabricated prescription for anti-depressants for Sushant. Rhea had also alleged that Sushant died within five days after obtaining the prescription.

During the hearing, Vikas Singh argued that the Telemedicine Practice guidelines allowed a doctor to prescribe medicines to someone after an online consultation. He also said that due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions, Sushant wasn’t able to go for a physical consultation.

Vikas is now hopeful that Rhea’s FIR against the late actor’s sisters will be quashed. He took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “# Hearing concluded in the SSR sisters matter. Justice will prevail. The FIR registered by Rhea likely to be quashed.”
