The ongoing Bollywood drugs case appears to be going in the way of Tollywood drugs case.
In 2017, drugs case rocked Tollywood film industry.
The Telangana state government headed by CM KCR sprang into action and constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the case.
The SIT headed by IPS officer Akun Sabharwal worked day and night to dig out the truth.
It issued summons to Tollywood celebrities and asked them to appear before SIT for questioning.
They include noted actor Ravi Teja, director Puri Jagannath, actress Charmee Kaur, actress Mumaith Khan etc.
They were grilled for several hours during interrogation. The SIT officials even took blood samples from Tollywood celebrities and sent them for testing.
But no one knows what happened suddenly. The SIT became inactive. There is no clarity on the status of these cases.
The state government is refusing to furnish information about the status of these cases even if applied under RTI Act (Right to Information).
This naturally fuelled speculations that Telangana state government has dropped investigation into Tollywood drugs case as there is no progress or no trace about these cases after 2017. It is widely believed that Tollywood bigwigs 'influenced' Telangana state government and succeeded in halting the investigation.
The same situation seems to be repeating in Bollywood drugs case. Actresses Rakul Preet Singh, Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan were called for questioning by NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) and left.
In fact, Rakul Preet Singh attended questioning in Mumbai, and within a day later she is back in Hyderabad today, September 28, 2020, and taking part in film shooting as usual despite reports that drugs were recovered from her residence in Mumbai during NCB raids and she admitted that the drugs were supplied by Rhea Chakraborty.
