Mamta Kulkarni’s husband, Vicky Goswami, has been arrested by the police. Allegedly, Goswami is the kingpin of an international drug cartel, and was wanted not just in India, but across the globe.
Goswami will be taken to the States and tried for drug smuggling. American agencies detained Goswami from his temporary home in Kenya late last night. Along with him, the police have also caught hold of two of his associates, Ibrahim and Baktash Akasha, reports Spotboye. In being deported to America, the pair will be tried there in court for smuggling drugs illegally into the country.
Meanwhile, Kulkarni’s former husband has been wanted by the Thane police for over a year now. He has been accused to be one of the prime suspects in a Rs 2000 crore drug bust case. Local police authorities were trying their best to get Goswami to India and try him under the Indian Penal Code. However, up until now there has been a significant lack of progress. Kulkarni herself was also one of the suspects who have been named by the Thane police in the drug bust case.
Goswami who hails from Ahmedabad, is the son of a police officer working for Gujarat Police. It is said that he ventured into illegal drug trafficking at a very early age in life, and it was during that time only that he got associated with both Bollywood and Underworld.
