Actor Vivek Oberoi faces an issue as his Mumbai house was raided by Bengaluru police.
As per the sources, the raid was thought to have been conducted to track his brother-in-law in connection with the ongoing Sandalwood drugs case.
Maharashtra Congress general secretary and spokesperson Sachin Sawant had claimed in a series of tweets that the Central investigating agencies could have shielded Oberoi and Sandip Ssingh.
He tweeted, “I had demanded with NCB to investigate the BJP Drug connection in Bollywood. In my questions to NCB, I had specifically mentioned the name of Aditya Alva found in the Sandalwood drug racket who is the brother-in-law of Vivek Oberoi who is a partner of Sandeep Ssingh. But NCB didn’t pay heed.”
He also claimed that the Gujarat government may have taken the side of the duo. “But now Bengaluru police have raided the house of Vivek Oberoi who is not only co-producer of Narendra Modi Biopic but also played the role of Modi Ji. Several Qns still unanswered as to why only this company was chosen for signing an MOU by Guj govt,” he tweeted.
He posted another tweeted, “Not only us, but BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy had also tweeted demanding Ssingh’s probe and why he frequently visits Dubai. NCB has been summoning Bollywood actors, but the demand for the probe of Singh is overlooked.”
However, BJP has denied the claims. “He is free to produce the evidence, if any, to the investigating agency or the courts. BJP never shields any wrongdoer and the search at Oberoi’s house is an example of the same. PM Narendra Modi’s integrity or sincerity cannot be contested. The allegations by Congress leaders are malicious and born out of frustrations,” said BJP spokesperson Madhu Chavan.
