Mangaluru: The Central Crime Branch (CCB) sleuths probing the drug scandal with alleged links to Sandalwood stars and other celebrities on Saturday, September 26 questioned Actress cum anchor Anushree for 4 hours at Panambur Police station.
Anushree was summoned for questioning on her reported links to Kishore Aman Shetty, dancer-choreographer, who is in judicial custody on charges of consumption and peddling of drugs.
Tarun, a close friend of Kishore, who has been arrested on the charge of drug consumption, had told the police that Anushree had also attended Kishore Aman Shetty’s party, after which she was summoned to record her statement.
She arrived at the ACP office in Panambur police station in Mangaluru at 9 am on Saturday. Police officials from the Central Crime Branch (CCB) and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) questioned her.
Addressing reporters outside the CCB office, Anushree said, “I answered all their questions and will cooperate fully with the investigation.”
“I have never attended any drug party,” she added.
Earlier on Thursday, September 24 in a Facebook post, Anushree had stated that she had travelled to Mangaluru to appear before the CCB for questioning.
“Even though the CCB has only called me for questioning, the media has taken a picture from one film I acted in and there are attempts to brand me as guilty. I request the media to understand that I have no role in the investigation and being questioned does not make me guilty. I will cooperate fully with the investigation. I request that the media does not take a stand on this,” Anushree said.
