ED summons Tollywood actor Navdeep in drug scandal

HYDERABAD: The Enforcement Directorate on Friday issued a summons to Tollywood actor Navdeep, instructing him to appear before the agency in the drug scandal. ED sources disclosed that Navadeep had been asked to present himself on October 10.
The Telangana State Anti Narcotics Bureau recently interrogated actor Navdeep Pallapolu regarding a case registered at Gudimalkapur police station. Police investigations revealed that the actor had been in contact with Nigerian drug peddlers, who were apprehended in Bengaluru on September 14.
Navdeep was served a notice under CrPC Section 41A after the Telangana high court granted him anticipatory bail.
An ED source stated, “We have summoned him in connection with the old Tollywood drug trafficking case. We will also incorporate the current case into it. Navdeep has been summoned twice, but he failed to appear before us.”
