new Delhi: The government said on Tuesday that no actionable information has been received by the Drug Control Bureau (NCB) that reveals the alleged nexus between film industry people and drug traffickers.
Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kishan Reddy said in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha that NCB continuously conducted searches, confiscations, arrests and investigations throughout the year on actionable information obtained by it or from other sources.
The minister said, “During the period of lockdown of Kovid-19, NCB did not get any actionable information which exposed the collusion between film industry people and drug traffickers”.
“However, a case was registered by NCB’s Mumbai Regional Unit on August 28, 2020 in this regard,” Reddy said. So far 10 people have been arrested in this case. In this campaign, drugs like cannabis, hashish, tetra hydro cannibanol and lysergic acid d-ethylamide were seized.
The minister was answering the question whether the government has conducted a detailed investigation in the matter of collusion between the people of the film industry and those involved in the drug trade during the Kovid-19 lockdown.
