Ravi Teja’s Driver Appears Before SIT:- In connection with a high-end online drug racket busted by the Telangana Prohibition and Excise Department, actor Ravi Teja’s driver Srinivas Rao on Saturday appeared before the SIT.
The driver was among the 12 personalities, including directors and actors from the film industry, summoned by the SIT which is questioning several people as part of cases registered in connection with the racket.
On Friday, the SIT grilled the “Kick” actor for about 10 hours in connection with the case. The actor has acted in several movies directed by Puri Jagannadh, who was the first person from the film industry to be recently questioned.
The SIT has questioned cinematographer Shyam K Naidu, actors Subba Raju, Tarun Kumar and Navdeep, actresses Charmi Kaur and Mumaith Khan, and art director Dharma Rao alias Chinna, since July 19.
The investigators suspect that film personalities, employees of MNCs, school and college students were among the clients. The criminals have placed orders through Darknet and through couriers the drugs were delivered, including from overseas, said the officials. The Darknet is said to be a restricted online network, frequently used in illegal activities.
