Kannada television host and actress Anushree has been reportedly summoned by the Mangalore Central Crime Branch, in connection with the ongoing #Sandalwooddrugscandal.
As per reports, the Mangalore CCB on Thursday (September 24) noon had reportedly sent a notice to ace TV host Anushree through Whatsapp to appear for interrogation. Further details regarding the date of investigation are awaited
On the other hand, host Anushree confirmed to a regional news channel that she has not received any notice from the Mangalore CCB as of now. She also mentioned that she is deeply disheartened by such kind of news.
According to sources, Anushree’s summons are based on the investigation of Bollywood dancer and choreographer Kishore Shetty. Kishore was arrested by the CCB Mangalore on September 19 for allegedly possessing drugs. It was reported that Kishore Shetty consumed synthetic drugs and had been arrested by the CCB sleuths after they received information about the same.
She also expressed displeasure that media is jumping gun and not being sensitive on issues like this. She has expressed confidence that, she is not involved in such such activities and would co-operate with investigation agency.
During his investigation, Kishore has reportedly revealed that Anushree used to be a part of a few parties, and hence the Mangalore CCB has summoned Anushree for questioning.
On a career front, Anushree is one of the highest-paid anchors of Kannada television, reports suggest. She has been given a tough competition to her contemporaries in the showbiz world. In Kannada TV with more number of male anchors, Anushree has won the hearts of millions with her on-screen persona and style of hosting.
She was also listed as the most desirable woman on Kannada TV 2019 by Bangalore Times.
