Drugs Case: Ravi Teja Facing A Spate Of Questions
Hyderabad: Actor Ravi Teja has been under intense grilling right since he reported to the Special Investigation Team on Friday at 10 am in the infamous drugs case.
The actor has to carry the onus, as two of his brothers had earlier come under the scanner of police for being involved in drugs. One of them, Bharath, had died on the spot in a road accident on the night of June 24 when his car crashed into a parked lorry at Kothwalguda on outskirts of the city. Evidence of liquor and drugs were found on Bharath and inside the car.
Ravi Teja is also being questioned about his relationship with the main accused in the case – Calvin and Jishan. The actor’s number has been found on the phones of Calvin and Jishan and there is also evidence of selfies and WhatsApp chats between them. In fact, Jishan had earlier told interrogators that he knew Ravi Teja for the past six years and it was he who introduced the actor to Calvin.
The actor has been asked as to where he stays when there is no shooting, the pubs he often visits and since how long he knows director Puri Jagannadh.
Meanwhile, SIT sleuths are extensively searching for two people who have links with Mike Kamminga, the Netherlander who has been arrested in the drugs case.
