Hyderabad drug racket case:
Many film stars from Tollywood have been quizzed in the drug racket case involving various Tollywood actors. The latest to be quizzed in the case is the young actor, P Navdeep.
Navdeep is the 5th celebrity who has been questioned by the authorities for alleged links with drug peddlers arrested in the case.
The actor is among the 12 celebrities who has been summoned for the alleged links with the drug peddlers.
Art director Dharma Rao alias Chinna will appear before SIT on Tuesday.
The investigating officials on Saturday grilled actor Tarun. They had quizzed actor Subbaraju on Friday. Known for his negative roles in many films, Subbaraju had reportedly provided leads to the SIT for further investigations.
The SIT earlier questioned director Puri Jagannadh and cinematographer Shyam K. Naidu.
The celebrities were summoned for questioning as their contact numbers were found in the call data of Calvin Mascrenhas, the kingpin of the racket.
Actors Ravi Teja and Nandu, actresses Charmee Kaur and Mumaith Khan are among the other celebrities who will be questioned this week.
The enforcement wing of the department has so far arrested 19 accused, including US citizen Dundu Anish — an aerospace engineer who had earlier worked with the NASA, and seven B.Tech graduates, most of whom were working for multi-national companies.
