Ever since the Sushant Singh Rajput began last year, it was then followed by a pandora's box which lead to the opening a can of worms in terms of the drug case. More and more names began to come forward from Bollywood with either being arrested or called in for questioning in the case by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
In the recent past, actor Arjun Rampal's girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades' brother Agisilaos Demetriades was in scrutiny as well in the case after drugs were allegedly found in his obsession in Goa. But owing to that, Rampal and girlfriend were also called in for questioning and their names were dragged into the pit of names.
Earlier in the day, brother Demetriades was arrested by the NCB. Now, Rampal went on to talk about it and released an official statement while filming for his next in London. “Dear Friends ,Followers & Public, I'm as shocked and taken aback as you are with this latest development today. It's unfortunate that my name is being unnecessarily dragged in every publication though I have no association whatsoever”.
He went on to add, “As far as my family and I are concerned, my direct family and I are law-abiding citizens. And while the incident involves a person who is a relative of my partner, I have no other connection or relationship other than that with this person”.
Rampal also urged the media to not use his name unnecessarily, “I request the media to not make headlines using my name as we are NOT related and this is causing hurt and confusion for my own family and the people I have a professional relationship with”
“I have faith in our legal system and whoever is on the wrong side of the law, should be treated as the judiciary deems fit. My trust is in the system in these matters.”
On a closing note, he said, “Let the law take its course and kindly refrain from attaching my partner's and my name to something we have nothing to do with. I appreciate all your support and humbly request you to be honest and sensitive in this regard”.
