Tollywood famous director Puri Jagganath was investigated by Special Investigation Team(SIT) about drug case and collected a blood sample from him. The Investigation started on a Wednesday morning at Abkari Bhawan and lasted for nearly 10 hours. He was accompanied by his family members son Akash and brother Sairam Shanker.
After long suspense, Puri Jagganath came out from the Abkari Bhavan at 9:30 PM and went home without speaking any word with the waiting media members.
The SIT has issued investigation notices for 12 Tollywood personalities about the drug rocket and Puri Jagganath was one among them to be investigated at first. A four members team has investigated him about the links with drug racket. It took them a long session and got some of the clues in the investigation.
“Investigation is going on at a good pace,” said by the SIT team after the session on Wednesday night. Enforcement Director Akun Sabharwal, who is heading the team, said Jagannadh cooperated during the questioning.
SIT officials questioned him about his links with Calvin Mascarenhas the major of this drug racket. When Puri Jagganath was denied to talk about this SIT team came up with an evidence of photographs that were taken in the release function of his movie “Jyothi Lakshmi” in which he was with Calvin.
Puri Jagganath said to the SIT team that he was known to him as an event manager and does not have any links regarding the drug racket.
The SIT team also claimed they have collected blood sample with the consent of him and the medical reports will be out soon.
Cameraman Shyam K Naidu will be attending for investigation today and Charmee Kaur and Mumaith Khan will be on July 20 and 21 as confirmed by the SIT team.
After coming out of SIT investigation, Puri released a video in twitter. It was very sentimental and asked the media not to draw conclusions. We need to respect his privacy on this.
