Yesterday September 2, the producer turned actress Charmee appeared before ED with her Charted Accountant in relation to the ongoing Tollywood drug case. Reportedly, the ED officials had interrogated the producer for about 8 hours. A team led by Director Abhishek Goyal inquired her on the third floor of the office and Charmi has reportedly submitted all the details of her two bank accounts to the authorities. Accordingly, she was questioned about the transactions that appeared suspicious. Additionally, the authorities have also enquired about her relationship with the drug supplier Kevin.
“Did you give money to him for buying drugs? Did you have any phone conversations or Whatsapp chats with him?, Did you send any money to his account online?, Did you call the phone number named ‘Dada’ on your phone? were some of the questions reportedly posed at Charmee and she had reportedly answered that she doesn’t know anything about Kevin and she had no such dealings with him.
She also reportedly talked about her business association and transactions with director Puri Jagannath and she was sent away by the authorities to attend the hearing again if necessary.
Charmee who came out from the ED inquiry reportedly talked to the media and said that the ED officials have asked her to attend the hearing after being summoned and she had answered all the questions posed by them and also have submitted all the bank documents that they asked for. She also mentioned that she had fully co-operated with the investigation and she will also return once again if required.
Meanwhile, It is known that ED officials have also summoned Rakul Preet Singh to attend the hearing on the 6th of this month, but Rakul appealed to ED to give her some more time, to which ED officials reportedly rejected her plea as several people were likely to be interrogated in the days following. Rakul reportedly agreed after the authorities suggested that she should attend the hearing on Friday 03/09/2021. ED sources too confirmed the same.
