Tollywood actor Tarun appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in Basheerbagh on Wednesday in connection with a money-laundering investigation reportedly connected to a narcotics network raided in 2017. Tarun was the last of the 12 film celebrities to be summoned by the ED to appear for interrogation. Officials questioned him using his bank account statements.
However, it is unclear whether the ED would call other film stars or conclude the interrogation, like the Prohibition and Excise Department's Special Investigation Team (SIT) did after uncovering the narcotics ring in 2017.
The ED summoned and questioned the 12 film celebrities based on the Case Occurrence Report (COR) issued by the Prohibition and Excise department.
