Rhea Chakraborty, one of the prime accused in Sushant Singh Rajput case, during an interview said that the late actor was in touch with Dr Harish Shetty for his mental health issues even before he had met her. Now, the doctor in question has given a statement to the Mumbai Police about the late actor’s diagnosis.
Dr Harish Shetty aka Harishankar Shetty, in his statement to Mumbai Police, has revealed that the late actor had visited his clinic in Andheri only once in 2014. He said that the actor had met him and spoke about his ailments.
According to Dr Harish Shetty’s statement, which was accessed by India Today, he claimed that when Sushant Singh Rajput visited his clinic, he only had sleeplessness and insomnia. To which the doctor examined him and did not find any serious issues back then.
Dr Harish Shetty statement reads, “In 2014, Sushant Singh Rajput visited my clinic in Andheri. He did not have any prior appointment to see me. That time the clinic was crowded and a lot of people were present inside. Sushant then told me that he couldn’t provide all the details of his ailment then and if needed he will come and see me again. He told me that he was suffering from sleeplessness and insomnia. So, I screened and examined Sushant and didn’t find any serious issues then. For sleeplessness and insomnia, I prescribed some medication and gave him a future date for an appointment.”
The doctor further claimed in his statement that Sushant Singh Rajput didn’t come for his follow-up appointment. In the statement, he also revealed his methods for treating his patients. He said that he would ask his patients if they are having any suicidal thoughts or fear or any kind of phobia.
“While treating or examining any patient, I ask for detailed information from them. During a primary examination, I ask them whether they have any suicidal thoughts. Whether they fear anything or have any kind of phobia. Whether they are getting proper sleep and if their appetite is normal. Only after that, as needed, I prescribe medicines to the patients. The patients are also asked to regular follow up visits. If required, I also refer them to other psychiatrists,” Dr Harish Shetty said in his statement to the police.
