Open Letter to Prakash Javedekar from Shri RVS Mani on Drugs, Bollywood Mafia and connections with Pakistan
Now about the media and drugs, let me take you back to a story of 15 years vintage. This was narrated by some security personnel. A huge cache of drugs were seized in Delhi in March 2005. One person was arrested. In the said incident an accomplice got killed. That accomplice was the son of very power person in the media. They entire narrative of this killing was changed as an accident of being a hit and run case. The then Minister of I&B spoke to the Commissioner of Police Delhi of the time and personally ensured that not trail is left All this to ensure the deniability of children of elites of Lutyen’s Delhi indulging in drugs. I do not know the details of the persons. I do not want to sully the image of the child who unfortunately is not longer with us. But I am sharing this to buttress my point that no professional area is free of these menace and we need to escalate the level of diligence. The police personnel were also too keen to peddle this narrative as that would mean avoiding a lot of trouble in the sense that unnecessary media attention could be avoided as well as police personnel would be spared of any encounter killing controversy. So they too were too willing to hush up the matter and make it look like an accident.
