The Tollywood Drug Cartel is taking an interesting turn with each passing day. The way Enforcement Directorate(ED) is handling the case raised new suspicious. Authorities who questioned Puri Jagannath and Charmee for 10 hours summoned their auditors as well. The celebrities’ bank transactions from 2015 to 2021 were examined.
The case, which came to the limelight in 2017, is thought to have revolved around Kelvin. But took a swift U-turn while the whole focus is now on the diversion of funds to foreign countries. ED has already examined investigations taken up by various states in relation to drug cases. Excise Department also investigated the charge sheets submitted to the court by SIT team.
While the media is just highlighting the drug angle in the case, the ED was learned to dig up money transactions, investments in foreign countries, paper companies, the illegal inflow of funds from abroad angles. In fact, celebrities who have been accused of drug abuse may not have sent money directly abroad from their own accounts.
Chances are high that the ED might concentrate on the flow of money from the accounts of celebrities whose names are included in the list.
