The Enforcement Directorate authorities who are interrogating the Tollywood celebrities alleged to have connections with drug paddlers questioned actor Ravi Teja on Thursday. The Tollywood star who has been in the industry for decades appeared before the officials in connection with a money-laundering probe that is linked to the drug case of 2017.
While director Puri Jagannath, actress-turned-producer Charmee, actor Nandu, Rana Daggubati, and actress Rakul Preet Singh were already interrogated, Kelvin, the alleged peddler is under police custody now. The celebrities summoned so far were interrogated for hours together.
On July 2, 2017, the Telangana’s Prohibition and Excise department had busted a drug racket by arresting a three-member gang, including musician-turned-kingpin Calvin Mascrenhas, for allegedly peddling narcotic drugs such as LSD and MDMA.
