Varun Sandesh
Hyderabad, Aug 29: Budding Telugu actor Varun Sandesh, whose name has been under the scanner related with a drug racket is likely to be interrogated by Hyderabad's Central Crime Station(CCS). The young actor is to be quizzed for drug-peddling or consumption as his name has figured in an accused person's confession last month.

"The actor will be issued summons shortly and we will question him soon along with other suspects," a senior police officer supervising the investigations into the various drug racket cases busted in Hyderabad, said.

Last month July, the police nabbed Dr DV Siddharth and a Nigerian, James Egems and seized 45 gms of cocaine from them. During interrogation, the duo “confessed" that they were supposed to deliver cocaine to Varun Sandesh. “The accused disclosed the name of Varun but we can arrest him only if we find cocaine in his possession," Langer Houz Inspector G Sridhar said.

“It was through my friend U Ravi I know Siddharth. He approached me for doing a film which actually did not work out. Besides, I do not know anything about him," Varun told a TV channel.
