Police on Wednesday issued notices to 4 people belonging to the Telugu film industry to present themselves before the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the shocking drugs haul case. Those issued notice include three young heroes, four producers, two directors and one fight master.
They were instructed to present themselves before the SIT within six days for an interrogation. They have been warned of serious consequences if they fail to make themselves available for investigation.
Apart from members of the film industry, others involved in the drugs abuse include multinational professionals and school children. It may be recalled that a ninth standard girl using drugs had shocked both people and police in Hyderabad.
While many bigwigs in the Telugu film industry have acknowledged the involvement of film celebrities and its personnel in abuse of drugs, they have taken objection to the entire film industry being maligned in the media because of a few.
Movie Artists’ Association (MAA) President Sivaji Raja, producers Suresh Babu and Allu Aravind, and hero Srikanth had spoken on the issue at a recent event held by MAA in the city.
