New Delhi: Hyderabad Police on Thursday stated that the drug peddlers, involved in the Sonali Phogat case, are all from Goa. However, the main accused is still not caught.
“After an enquiry with all the drug consumers in our area, we got to know that their peddlers are Pritish Narayan and Adwin and both of them are from Goa,” stated Hyderabad Commissioner of Police, CV Anand.
“Our team went to Goa and caught Pritish but were unable to arrest Adwin. During the Sonali Phogat case, the Goa Police named Adwin as one of the suspects. We got to know that all the peddlers involved in the case are from Goa only,” he added.
Goa Police and Hyderabad Police not on same frequency
Additionally, Hyderabad Police allegedly refused to work with Goa Police anytime they attempted to contact them, as per CV Anand.
On August 23, Sonali Phogat, 42, was pronounced dead at the St Anthony Hospital in Anjuna, North Goa. Her body had blunt force trauma, according to a post-mortem report, and the Goa Police then opened a murder investigation.
The actor, who gained notoriety through her TikTok videos, ran for office as a BJP candidate in the 2019 Haryana election but lost to then-Congress leader Kuldeep Bishnoi (he has since joined the BJP). In 2020, she also made an appearance on the reality series Bigg Boss.
