No nexus between film industry, drug mafia, says government

The government today told the Lok Sabha that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has received no actionable inputs that suggest a nexus between people in the film industry and drug traffickers.

Asked by K Sudhakaran of the Congress whether the government has conducted a detailed inquiry into the nexus between people in the film industry and those involved in drug trade during the Covid-19 lockdown, a written reply by the Union Home Minister said a case in this regard has been registered by the NCB’s Mumbai zonal unit.

Till date, 10 persons have been arrested in this case and drugs such as ganja, hashish, tetrahydrocannabinol and lysergic acid diethylamide have been seized in the operation.
