Telangana Excise Department and Special Investigation Team faced criticism after a reply to RTI Petition gave an indication that Tollywood Celebs who were questioned in connection with drug scandal received clean chit as their names weren't mentioned in any of the four chargesheets filed so far.
Civil Supplies Commissioner Akun Sabharwal who was the Excise Commissioner when the drug scandal was bursted clarified, 'What's being reported by media at present is the info existing on the date June 13th, 2018. Investigation of the Drug Case is still under progress. More chargesheets will be filed in future'.
Forum For Good Governance Founder Padmanabha Reddy questioned about the Lab Reports of the hair strands and nails collected from the Film Celebs. He demanded the Special Investigation Team which handled the drugs case to disclose those reports.
Can Akun Sabharwal's explanation be treated as an official assurance from Excise Department on the drugs case? Why the current Excise Commissioner hasn't responded yet? When will the investigation come to an end?
