Priyanka and Meetu Singh, sisters of later actor Sushant Singh Rajput, have requested the Bombay High Court for an early hearing of their petition. They fear that they could be arrested by the CBI at any moment.

The division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice MS Karnik had earlier asked them as to what was the urgency in hearing the petition. The sisters, Priyanka and Meetu, had filed the petition for quashing the FIR registered by actress Rhea Chakraborty.

Advocate Madhav Thorat, appearing for the sisters, told the court that since there is already an FIR against the sisters, they are already an accused in the case, and this is why they fear that they could be arrested any time.

In the petition, Priyanka and Meetu are also seeking an interim relief that no coercive steps are taken against them.

On September 7, 2020, Rhea had registered an FIR against the sisters for forgery and giving medication to Sushant which were wrongly prescribed. She claimed that the sisters, along with some doctors, hatched a conspiracy and obtained a false prescription containing banned medicines and annexed the same without supervising dose and quantity which may have resulted into a chronic anxiety attack and resulted in Sushant's suicide. The FIR was registered by Bandra police and was transferred to CBI.

Maneshinde has also pointed out that the investigation against the sisters is at a nascent stage and so the petition should be dismissed. In the meantime, the court after hearing Thorat asked Anil Singh, the additional Solicitor General who is representing CBI and the Mumbai police, to file their reply by Wednesday. The court will now be hearing the petition on November 4.
