Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 25 (ANI): Commenting on the ongoing probe in a drug case linked with Sushant Singh Rajput's death, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Friday criticised the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for calling people one after the another for interrogation and questioned that in which field there is no addiction?"Narcotics Control Bureau's job is to prevent drug smuggling, but here they are calling one person after the other. In which field, there is no addiction? Some have an addiction to money, some have other addictions," he said in a press conference.
"Mumbai's Aura will not decrease. Mumba Devi's importance will not decrease, let them move any office into this matter... If the Film industry is being expanded in the country then it's welcome. But no one would leave the luxury of film industry here in Maharashtra. No one will leave from here. On the contrary, we would say that that a film city should be started in Kashmir too," he said.
