Charmme Kaur: Different moods - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: After playing various tricks to skip the interrogation by the special investigation team of Excise and Enforcement department in drugs scam, Tollywood actress Charmme Kaur on Monday challenged the investigation in the Hyderabad High Court.

The actress who was originally scheduled to appear for the investigation on July 21 after director Puri Jagannadh's questioning, has been summoned to attend on July 26 (Wednesday).

In her petition challenging the SIT investigation, Charmme said extraction of blood, hair and nails samples from the suspects is a violation of Article 20(3) of the Constitution.

Article 20 (Clause 3) of the Constitution Of India says: No person accused of any offence shall be compelled to be a witness against himself or herself.

Charmme also sought the High Court permission to take an advocate along for the interrogation. Advocate Vishnuvardhan Reddy filed the petition on her behalf and the case is likely to be taken up for primary examination this afternoon.

It may be recalled here that the Excise and Enforcement department has sought an additional police security to be deployed at Abkari Bhavan on the day of Charmme's interrogation.
