SHRC chief MA Sayeed said he saw clips of Rhea at the hospital. He said, “I saw several video clips of Rhea Chakraborty visiting the mortuary at Cooper. I have asked the registrar of SHRC’s legal wing to check the provisions. We don’t know how and under what circumstances the permission to visit the mortuary was given. It should not have been so. I am treating the matter as urgent and have listed it for August 31”.
Sushant Singh Rajput had died on June 14 and had taken to the Cooper Hospital for the post-mortem. As per the reports, the autopsy was conducted after 10-12 hours of death. Rhea Chakraborty had visited the morgue on the very same day.
