Mangaluru: After drug accused Kishore Shetty and Tharun revealed they also knew TV anchor Anushree, the Central Crime Branch, Mangaluru summoned and subjected her to 4 hours of intense grilling. 

The anchor claimed innocence and said she was summoned as she had done a six months dance project some 10 years ago and had met them (drug case accused) at a dance studio, beyond which she has no knowledge of them.

She said she has answered all the questions and if necessary, she will return again. To a question on the current drug trend in Sandalwood, she said, “This is a big concern and the police are trying to fight it. As a responsible citizen I should cooperate."

The anchor was said to be part of a few parties hosted by the drug case accused, to which she reacted saying this information is far from the truth.

The anchor indicated that she knows Kishore Shetty and Tarun as choreographers and that she has no knowledge about their activities.

The anchor was grilled by both CCB and the Narcotics Police team. The anchor will leave for Bengaluru today.
