The Bengaluru East Zone Police have issued summons to Telugu Bigg Boss 3 contestant Tanish, a producer, and three others in connection with a drug case. The Govindapura police had recently busted a narcotics racket run by foreign nationals from Africa.
Now, the news of Tanish's involvement in the drug's case has gone viral on social media. Tanish reacted to this 'fake news' and released a video in which he stated that the police had sent him notices under the 67 NDPC Act. He said that some of the media houses were spreading fake news on his alleged involvement in the drugs case.
He further added that it is very sad that Telugu media houses are publishing fake news without even verifying the actual truth. Tanish further asserted that after the completion of his Bigg Boss Show, he got numerous offers. As a part of it, he met the producer who has been arrested for his alleged involvement in the drugs case. He said that two years ago, he met the producer in Bangalore, and after that, he has never visited the city. He also added that he had never contacted him by phone or even texted him in the last two years.
Tanish also justified him reacting to the issue saying it was a sensitive subject which could make it traumatic not only to him but also his parents. The former Bigg Boss contestant urged media persons not to publish fake news because he and his family members were not ready to willing to suffer the trauma anymore. He also made it clear that he will approach the court if the media continued to publish fake news.
