Their Bench held, "There is prima facie case found against Priyanka Singh and there should not be any impediment against investigation against her." In 2020, Rhea had gone ahead to file an FIR against late Sushant's sisters Meetu and Priyanka along with a New Delhi-based doctor for forging and getting a 'fake' medical prescription of the Chhichhore star. The FIR was filed on September 8, 2020, by Mumbai Police and it was based on a six-page complaint against Priyanka, Meetu, and DR Tarun Kumar from RML Hospital in New Delhi. The complainant was by Rhea. The FIR was registered under various sections of the IPC and NDPS Act.
Later, Sushant's sisters had gone ahead to challenge the FIR filed by Rhea against them. Sushant's sisters reportedly claimed that Rhea was changing statements to make a new story. Based on it, Sushant's sisters had gone ahead to file a petition before the Bombay High Court on October 6, 2020, to quash the FIR against them.
