After their police remand expired on Friday, the special narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances (NDPS) court sentenced Edwin Nunes, the proprietor of Curlies’ restaurant, and two other suspected drug dealers, Rama Mandrekar and Dattaprasad Gaonkar, to seven days of judicial detention in connection with the death of Bigg Boss star Sonali Phogat.
On September 6, a bail hearing will be held for the trio who are accused of procuring the methamphetamine that was given to BJP leader Phogat the night she passed away. For allegedly enabling the events that resulted in the actress and Tiktok star’s death, the Goa police first detained Gaonkar and then Nunes.
However, they have not been specifically mentioned as suspects in Phogat’s murder. Five people have been detained by the Goa Police thus far, including Phogat’s manager Sudhir Sangwan and his accomplice Sukhwinder Singh. They are suspected of killing the BJP politician and allegedly gave her methamphetamine under duress the night she passed away.
A murder investigation was opened based on the complaint made by Phogat’s brother. After the case was elevated to murder, Sangwan and Singh were detained after it was claimed that CCTV evidence showed how they gave her a drink from a glass that had been tainted with meth.
