Doctors Can't Discuss Sushant Rajput's Mental Health Without Consent: Family Lawyer

Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case: The actor was found dead in his apartment in Mumbai on June 14.

New Delhi:

Sushant Singh Rajput's family lawyer Vikas Singh on Saturday said doctors cannot share sensitive information of patients without the consent of their legal heirs.

He also said that any doctor who claims to have treated Sushant should discuss his medical history with the family first.

"I have seen a disturbing trend that so-called doctors of Sushant are discussing his mental health on news channels," Mr Singh told reporters.

"According to MCI professional rules, no doctor can share sensitive information related to their patient. As Sushant is no more, it can only be done with the permission of his legal heir i.e., his father," he said.

The lawyer also refuted the claims of a few that Sushant's mother's mental health was not right and clarified that she died due to brain haemorrhage.
