Popular anchor and actress Anushree, who was summoned to her hometown of Mangaluru in connection with a drug peddling case, joined the investigation at the Panambur Police Station on Saturday, September 26.
It can be recalled that the celebrity anchor was issued a notice based on the alleged revelations of Tarunraj, a close friend of dancer-choreographer Kishore Aman Shetty who was arrested September 24.
Anushreee was grilled for around four hours by a CCB police team, led by DCP Vinay Gaonkar, about her connections with Tarun and Kishore.
Soon after the interrogation was concluded, Anushree spoke to the media and said, “Drug are a demon creating nuisance in the state. It should be cleansed from society. I am ready to support the police investigation in all ways and also appreciate their efforts in this regard. We are with them.”
Speaking about the interrogation, she said, “I have answered all the questions asked by the police. If they call me again for the investigation, I am ready to come.”
About her links with the accused, Anushree said, “I first came in contact with Tarunraj 12 years ago when he choreographed me for six months. I know Kishore also, but I have never attended any of the drugs parties, nor do I have any connections with drugs.”
