The State Human Rights Commission (SHRC,) on the 25th of August, sent a show cause notice to the dean of Dr. RN Cooper Municipal General Hospital and the Mumbai Police.
The notice was sent to both for allowing Rhea Chakraborty to enter the mortuary of the hospital when Sushant Singh Rajput’s post mortem was being conducted.
M.A. Sayeed, the Chief of HRC said, “We don’t know how and under what circumstances the permission to visit the mortuary was given. It should not have been so.” He further said, “I am treating the matter as urgent and have listed it for the 31st of August.”
The notice was issued after several social media posts clicked, Rhea Chakraborty with three others at Cooper hospital on the afternoon of the 15th of June. Rhea and her family members were present inside the mortuary while the postmortem of Sushant Singh Rajput was being conducted.
An officer of the SHRC said, “We are investigating how she gained entry when she isn’t related to the deceased. We will have hearings and legal consequences will follow. The police will also have to face the consequences.”
Meanwhile, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is probing Sushant’s death, after a Supreme Court order last week.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is also investigating a separate money laundering case against Rhea and others.
After the CBI and ED, now, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has also joined the probe after the ED found a drug angle with the revealed chat of Rhea Chakraborty with a drug dealer of Dubai.
