had links with politicians but no one had been named so far.

On Wednesday, the name of former minister and Chamrajpet Congress MLA BZ Zameer Ahmed Khan came to the fore for his alleged links with the actor Sanjjanaa Galrani, accused number 14 in the Sandalwood drug case being investigated by the Central Crime Branch (CCB) police.

Sources said that the Galrani was part of Khan’s entourage to the island nation of Sri Lanka in June, a fact that the lawmaker denied. Both were said to have taken part in gambling at a casino there.

Sources said that Galrani and her associate and alleged drug peddler, Sheik Fazil, are said to have hosted the former minister during his visits to Sri Lanka.



Based on the information that Galrani provides, the Congress MLA could be summoned for questioning, a source in the police said.

It is said that Fazil and Galrani were organising several parties in Sri Lanka where drugs were also being supplied.

There were also murmurs that the recent seizure of a large cache of marijuana by the Bengaluru police was also linked to Khan.

Never met her: Khan

Speaking to Bangalore Mirror, Khan said that he had never met Galrani. “I don’t even know how she looks. I have not watched any of her movies too,’’ he said denying the charges.

Khan said that he had been to the island nation on June 8. “May be a section of media is linking this visit to Sri Lanka with the present case,’’ he said.

Khan said that he has filed a case at the Chamrajpet police station demanding an investigation into the charges against him.

“Let my travel history and that of hers be probed. Moreover, in any foreign country, one needs to show their passports to check into any hotel. This apart, there is a rule that CCTV footage not be deleted for 10 years (in Sri Lanka). Let the police probe all this. Someone should have taken my photo with the actor. Let them give the evidence,’’ he said.

On his links with Fazil, the Congress leader said that hundreds and thousands of people come and take photos with politicians. “Aren’t there photos of Ragini Dwivedi with Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa and his sons or other BJP leaders?’’ he asked.

Khan said that he will also file a defamation suit against film distributor Prashanth Sambargi who had alleged Khan’s involvement in the Sandalwood drug case. “Let the government confiscate my entire property if the charges are proved,’’ said Khan.
