The Thane police on Saturday said they will issue a red-corner notice against Former Bollywood actress Mamta Kulkarni in connection with drug racket case.
Police said that her Kenya-based husband Vicky Goswami is already an accused and now it has been confirmed that the actress is also an accused in the case.
In a press conference, Thane Police Commissioner Parambir Singh told the media that they will send request to interpol for red corner notice against Mamta Kulkarni through CBI. They further added that some people from Bollywood are also being investigated for their connections with Mamata Kulkarni and Vicky Goswami.
Earlier this month, A city-based builder, from whom former Bollywood actor Mamta Kulkarni had bought flats, has denied any link with her husband Vicky Goswami, a drug racket prime accused, or with drug syndicate.
Shabbir Patel, who faced allegations of links with drug mafia, has written a letter to Thane Police Commissioner Parambir Singh rejecting the charge.
In April, the Thane police seized 18.50 tonnes of ephedrine and 2.50 tonnes of acetic anhydride, both banned party drugs valued at more than Rs.2,000 crore in the international market, from a pharmaceutical factory in Solapur and other locations in Thane and Mumbai.
It is an international racket and Vicky Goswami is the main link in it. As for Mamta Kulkarni, now the her role in the matter has been confirmed.
Eight persons, including Nigerian Sipren Chinassa, have been arrested in what could be India’s biggest drug haul. The Maharashtra and Gujarat police are on the lookout for at least four other people who are missing and reportedly on the run.
During the 1990s, Mamta Kulkarni was paired with some of the top Bollywood stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Kapoor, Atul Agnihotri and many more. She had participated in a TV show and bagged a Femina award too.
