Hawaiian Shack disc jockey Jolly alias Baljit Singh has revealed names of several people from Bollywood and the television industry, who bought charas from him.
Jolly has also revealed names of five popular DJs who were his clients.
ANC officers arrested Jolly and his friend Sachin Singh from opposite the Bandra pub Hawaiian Shack with 450 grams of charas when they were selling it to a customer.
The ANC has questioned the celebrities who have confessed to buying drugs from Jolly.
ANC officers said Jolly, a resident of Bandra, has been working for Hawaiian Shack for four months. A graduate, Jolly stays with his parents and sister.
Mridul Singhvi, manager of Hawaiian Shack, said that Jolly had been working as a part-time DJ and had been supplying music to the resident DJs. “I was called for questioning but it what Jolly did outside the pub is not the concern of Hawaiian Shack,” said Singhvi. “We have put up notices in the pub saying that drug consumption inside the pub would be reported to the police.”
An ANC officer who was in the team that arrested Jolly said that the DJ used to get charas from a man named Sunny Sawta from Hoshiyarpur in Jalandhar, Punjab.
“Jolly has been supplying drugs to several other DJs in the city and even to some who organize rave parties. On Jolly’s tip-off we detained another DJ a club in Bandra but that DJ said that he had bought drugs from Jolly for personal consumption,’ said the ANC officer, requesting anonymity because he is not authorised to speak to the media. The ANC is verifying the second DJ’s claims.
The ANC officers are now investigating the involvement of other celebrities DJs in the drug peddling business.
“We are now keeping a check on all the pubs, clubs and discos in the suburbs after Jolly's arrest," said Sunil Paraskar, deputy commissioner of police, ANC.
