Actor Varun Sandesh in Drug Racket?

The Tollywood made it to headlines once again for wrong reasons. The names of young heroes Varun Sandesh and Abhishek cropped up in the drug racket case on Friday when the West Zone police (Hyderabad) arrested one Dr. Naga Siddhartha and Fredrick Langar House and seized 50 gm of cocaine. While Siddhartha is a surgeon at Bangalore, Fredrick is a Nigerian. The police have kept an eye on Fredrick for quite some time now only to catch him red-handed. During investigation, both Fredrick and Dr. Siddharth admitted that they sell drugs to film celebs including Varun Sanesh, Abhishek (Danger and Nenu-fame) and producer Ravi Uppala, among others and also a few politicos.

This is second such major breakthrough in the case of drug racket where film personalities are confirmed to be involved. It may be mentioned that Ravi Teja’s brother Bharath was arrested red-handed while buying drugs a few months ago. Quite recently, the names of Naani and Trisha too emerged as part of the case, which they denied.

Reacting to the allegations, Varun denied knowing Fredrick and said the police didn’t contact him yet. However, he conceded to have been acquainted with Dr. Naga Siddhartha and brushed off the news that the latter supplied him drugs.
