RGV Reacts On Tollywood Drug Mafia July 22, 2017 11:37

RGV Reacts On Tollywood Drug Mafia:- Maverick director Ram Gopal Varma is quite aware of the happenings in Tollywood though he stays in Mumbai.

Puri Jagannadh has been cornered much and he even attended the investigation. After a complete day at SIT office, he has been asked to attend the investigation once again on August 3rd. His blood samples along with nails and his hair have been collected by the Special Investigation Team (SIT). There are talks that the SIT officials have collected all the evidences after which they have been called for the investigation that is taking place. Ram Gopal Varma took his official facebook page to reveal about his reaction on the drug abuse and the Tollywood celebrities involved in drug mafia. Here is his response: “I am very much wondering if the school children taking drugs also will be summoned by SIT and interrogated for 12 hours like they are doing to Poori jagan and Subba Raju ..just asking? Ofcourse everyone kind of know it exists but first time everyone actually heard about this department only because they are using the film industry as a teaser trailer for people to come to know their existence. Whatever the actual truth of the drugs matter the law in its own course might tell or not tell but for the moment Akun Sabharwal is being projected like Amarendta Bahubali by the Media ..Maybe S S Rajamouli should make Bahubali 3 with him. Nobody is denying the integrity of Mr.Sabarwal or his department but even without any charges or conclusive proof to allow the media leaks to destroy the reputations of people apart from causing distress to their families is highly deplorable”.

Indian Man Convicted In US For Using Fake Identity To Get Citizenship July 22, 2017 10:24

Indian Arrested In US, US Citizenship, Balbir Singh, Ranjit Singh:- According to the U.S. Department of Justice, an Indian man has been convicted for using a false identity to procure American citizenship, after deportation orders. The accused has been identified as Balbir Singh aka Ranjit Singh (50), a resident of Houston. He had previously tried to get asylum under a fake pretence. An immigration judge then ordered his deportation from the United States, when that attempt failed. This has made him ineligible to ever become a naturalized citizen. Moreover, instead of leaving the country, he changed his name to Ranjit Singh and also date of birth. He even tried to obtain naturalization, based on a marriage to a United States citizen.  In the process of obtaining the citizenship, he denied ever being ordered deported, seeking asylum or using a different identity. “In addition, Singh sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2013. In it, he complained about the anxiety and frustration he experienced in having to wait for an extended period at the airport every time he returned from an international trip due to discrepancies in his biometric information. He requested DHS clear these discrepancies,” the Justice Department said. After obtaining the citizenship, a fingerprint comparison established that Balbir Singh and Ranjit Singh were the same person. Balbir Singh will face sentencing on October 13 of up to 10 years in federal prison, a possible USD250,000 possible fine, revocation of his citizenship and enforcement of his outstanding deportation order.
