The NCB is currently trying to unearth the drug mafia link in Bollywood. Several other film industries in the country have also come under the scanner. A Sandalwood and even a Tollywood drug scandal have come to light over the past weeks.
Meanwhile, in Telangana, a BJP Spokesperson demanded that the Chief Minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao initiate an investigation into the drug menace and added that he would also write to Home Minister Amit Shah and MoS Kishan Reddy regarding the same.
