Ravi Teja’s brothers held for drug peddling

Actor Ravi Teja’s brothers Bharat and Raghu Babu and their associate Naresh were arrested by the Banjara Hills police on Thursday while they were allegedly buying cocaine from a Nigerian national.
The police reportedly seized eight grams of cocaine from the trio and 51 grams of cocaine from the Nigerian after nabbing them at Road No. 3 in Banjara Hills. The police said the actor’s brothers (who themselves are small time artistes) had gone to the drug peddler in a Ford-Panther Black bearing registration number AP 13 L 8999 which belongs to Ravi Teja. Police pounced on them while they were buying the cocaine from him.

Banjara Hills police has reportedly registered a case under Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances against all the four. The nabbed brothers were said to have made a number of calls to some of their artiste-colleagues, but knowing that they were under the police custody, there was no response to the calls. Investigation is on.

Meanwhile, the development has sent shockwaves in the Tollywood circles.
