The drug scandal that has erupted in the Sandalwood film industry following the arrest of two prime accused individuals, who go by the names of Anika and Ravindra, is likely to only get murkier after the recent revelations by Indrajit Lankesh. The Kannada filmmaker told Deccan Herald, “Some actresses do consume drugs at the parties. I am aware that they consume the banned substances inside the vanity vans on the sets. It's true that there is a link between Sandawlood and the drug mafia. I've heard that some budding artistes and those wanting to hog limelight within no time consume drugs at rave parties.”
Quick to add that no big names from the Kannada film industry are involved, Indrajit Lankesh said, “As far as I know, no big star in Kannada film industry is involved in the racket. I haven't heard that big stars consume drugs. They have a sense of social responsibility due to their image. It may be safely said that they aren't involved in such incidents.”
Raising doubts over an actor's recent death, without naming said actor, while also questioning the shoddy investigation of drugs found in a car involved in an accident, Lankesh continued, “Why was the autopsy not conducted after the death of an actor recently? A car was involved in an accident some years ago at South End Circle in Bengaluru. It was reported that drugs were recovered from inside the car and there were some artistes inside. What is the status of the case? Why did the police not conduct a thorough investigation? Why did the police not initiate action against those inside the car? Are politicians too involved in the racket?”
Meanwhile, CCB joint commissioner of police, Sandeep Patil, decalred that had issued a notice to the filmmaker to come in for questioning. “We have asked him to come to the CCB office on Monday,” he said, while a senior police officer added, “The Anti Narcotics Wing officials will ask him to share information and support the city police in the fight against the drugs mafia. We are going to investigate each and every information he shares with us.”
Time along will tell who all will be named in the Sandalwood drug scandal.
