Actress Kajal Agarwal is shocked and appalled over the arrest of her manager, Puttkar Ronson Joseph in connection with the drug racket disclosed earlier this month. He was arrested yesterday by the Telangana Prohibition and Excise Department after ganja (cannabis) was found during the investigation process in his house. 19 people so far has been arrested in this drug racket case. The actress clarified in a tweet that she has only professional relations with her manager.
"I am absolutely shocked and appalled about his whole incident with Ronnie. I am in zero support of this and my behaviour that is detrimental to the hygiene of our society.
Having said that, just because I care for people who run errands for me does not imply that I can control their personal lives/ choices.
"My parents have always managed my career and with everyone else from my industry, I share an extremely professional/ cordial relationship. I'm unaware of their whereabouts and activities once their professional duties with regards to me are completed," she said in the tweet.
After the names of some Tollywood personalities came out during the interrogation of those arrested so far, the SIT has questioned noted filmmaker Puri Jagannadh, cinematographer Shyam K Naidu and character actor P Subba Raju, besides Tarun Kumar since July 19.
The SIT was quizzing them to find out if they had any links with the racket as consumers or suppliers or with those arrested, Excise officials earlier said.
As a part of the racket, high-end drugs such as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and methylenedioxy- methamphetamine (MDMA) were being supplied.
The investigators are doubtful that along with film personalities, school and college students, MNCs employees are among its clients. The orders were placed by Darknet and was delivered through couriers.
