Mumaith Khan To Quit Bigg Boss For Drugs Probe:- Tollywood’s item girl cum Actor Mumait Khan will soon have to quit the reality show, Bigg Boss Telugu, after she has received summons from the excise department as part of the ongoing investigation into Tollywood’s links with drug peddlers.
The actress will soon return to Hyderabad from the Big Boss sets in Lonavala for questioning by the excise department officials on July 27.
“The actress will appear before SIT on July 27 for the questioning.” “Mumait Khan will have to appear for questioning like the others who have been issued notices under Section 67 of NDPS Act,” the Enforcement Director Akun Sabarwal said. However, unlike her male colleagues who have been appearing before the investigating officers at the SIT office in Abkari Bhavan at Nampally, Mumait Khan will have the choice of talking to the SIT officials at a place of her convenience. “But she will be questioned in Hyderabad,” a SIT official said.
The SIT officials who could not trace at her residences in Hyderabad and Mumbai contacted the Big Boss organizers to serve the notice. Only after the Big Boss show was aired on Television, the authorities have known her whereabouts.
“We contacted the show managers and the actress confirmed that she will be appearing before police for questioning,” a SIT official said.
So far, from the tinsel town, Director Puri Jagannath, Cinematographer Shyam K Naidu and actor Subbaraju have questioned by SIT in the drug peddling case.
Mumait will have to leave the show for questioning and might come back. In the first season on Big Boss which is hosted by Tollywood actor Jr NTR, she is one of the contestants. Mumait Khan has acted in 40 Telugu, 20 Hindi, 16 Tamil and five Kannada films.
