Drug scandal has seen maverick director Ram Gopal Varma vehemently defending Puri Jagan and his friends, who have been questioned for hours together. RGV has asked if the SIT will question school children who are into drugs for such a long time. He also said that the SIT was using film industry to get publicity.
But, Excise Enforcement Director Akun Sabharwal has given a counter to RGV in Monday’s press conference. He said there was no question of revealing any school-going child’s name. He said if their names are revealed, their lives would be ruined. “But, we are counseling their parents. Those who came to the SIT were counseled personally and those who did not like to come to the SIT office were counseled telephonically. He told plain and frank that there was no need for the excise department to get publicity.
