Hyderabad police have arrested South Indian Telugu film actresses Saira Banu & Jyothi in connection with prostitution on August 23, 2010 Monday. On the early hours of Monday, the Hyderabad police busted the racket at Spring Heaven Apartments in Begumpet, Hyderabad,where these two were caught red handed with their customers along with one woman belonging to Uzbekistan.
Commissioner of Police AK Khan said that since past few days they were having their eyes on several suspects of drug consumption that included these actresses as well.
For Saira Bhanu, her name was also featuring in the phone list along with Trisha of the Uganda Nationalist Victors phone book in connection with drugs. And for Jyothi, she married an NRI few years back and quit films. But she came back into Telugu movies recently and was now caught red- handed.
The police believe that some rich as well as some famous people are involved in this racket, as the locality that was raided has houses of many Ministers, bureaucrats and other eminent personalities. Though, the officials have not revealed anyone else’s identity as of now.
The arrest of the actresses is another setback for the Telugu film industry, after Ravi Teja’s brothers Bharat and Raghu were red handedly caught recently for dealing drugs with a Nigerian national.
