Vikram Goud, former AP Minister Mukesh Goud's son, who got arrested a few weeks ago for allegedly orchestrating a shooting conspiracy on himself, clarified that he had no connection with the drug scandal.
A day after releasing from the Jail on bail, Vikram Goud spoke to media on Sunday and said that film director Puri Jagannath had visited him in the hospital just because they were good friends.
Since the shooting episode happened just when the probe in drugs scandal was at peaks, and also because Puri, the alleged prime accused among Tollywood celebs in drugs case, visited him in the hospital, reports emerged about the young politician's involvement in drugs case.
'I don't have any involvement in the drugs scandal. If the officials are still in doubt, I am ready to voluntarily offer my blood sample for investigation purpose. Rumors are circulating that I have a Pub in Hyderabad, but they are completely false. I have a restaurant in the city, which only meets people's dining needs. I am in no way involved with drugs,' he affirmed.
He also vehemently denied the allegations leveled by police against him of hatching his own shooting conspiracy to escape debts and also to gain voters' sympathy. The 33-year-old Congress leader added that he wishes to contest the 2024 Assembly elections.
