Drugs, the use of other drugs or the raves of Bollywood stars are nothing new. New cases continue to appear frequently. It just happens that every time a new case comes in, there is a little stir, the headlines for a few days, and then gradually the matter is stored cold. Due to this freezing process, despite all the arrests and investigations to date, the drug business has not only flourished but is at its peak as of today. Almost all of Bollywood seems to swing in the lap of banned drugs. When Riya Chakraborty was arrested after the drugs angle in the Sushant suicide case, many sensational revelations came to light.
Some reports citing Riya say that around 80 percent of people in the Bollywood industry use drugs. It was only after Riya’s reveal that the NCB called in famous Bollywood stars for questioning. Many celebrities were also arrested. After questioning Riya, NCB had summoned many celebrities. Subsequently, the statements of stars such as Karisma Prakash, Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor were recorded. For what reason the stars were summoned and what statements they made is not very clear.
What did the agencies do in the old drug cases?
However, Bollywood is currently under discussion because failed actor Armaan Kohli is on drugs. The drug was seized from Armaan’s home after a tip from a drug dealer. For which he is being detained and interrogated in judicial custody. Armaan’s chapter also gets interesting in the sense that the rower he’s been captured by was arrested three years ago in a drug case. Armaan’s case makes it clear that all actions related to drug trafficking so far have proven to be a mere sham. The departments involved slow down over time or turn a blind eye due to the high-profile rackets. Because both the buyer and the seller in this business are “white collar” people. Not only are Armaan Kohli or his paddler in question, but many movie stars were captured even before Armaan. Caught years ago and even then the agencies failed to shoot arrows.
I don’t know how many rave party action images have come to the fore. The main celebrities were also involved in this. But in the future, what happened to rave parties and the celebrities involved in them, this mystery could never be exposed. However, after the arrest of Riya Chakraborty, especially in Mumbai and Bollywood, long-term actions and activism against drugs and their network are seen for the first time. How effective and long it will be, will be clear in the future. Today you know about the famous Bollywood drug cases and the celebrities caught up in them. Do you also know what happened in those cases so far?
