Thane Police names Mamta Kulkarni as accused in Rs 2,000 crore drug racket, to issue red corner notice


Thane police on Saturday named former Bollywood actor Mamta Kulkarni as an accused in the Ephedrine drug bust case.

The police is planning to issue a red corner notice against her soon to get her extradited back to India. Thane police claims to have sent over a request to the Interpol for a red corner notice against Mamta through CBI, verifying her bank accounts and investments.

A police officer told Times Now that their records showed that Kulkarni was present in the meeting that took place on 8 January in Kenya.

Kulkarni, who vehemently denied the charges of drugs smuggling against her and her husband Vicky Goswami, is reported to be in Kenya at the moment.

Vicky too is named as an accused in the case and is currently out on bail in Kenya.


Previously the Thane police had probed the Rs 2,000-crore drug bust and stated to issue a red-corner notice against Vicky.

The drug racket was first busted with the arrest of a Nigerian national on 18 April.

The arrest led them to a shed of Avon Life sciences in Solapur MIDC from where they recovered 22 tonnes of ephedrine.

Ephedrine is a controlled substance, which is often used as an ingredient in medicines to cure asthma and bronchitis.
