Thane: Bollywood actress Mamta Kulkarni is being investigated as the central figure in international drug racket case spearheaded by her husband Vicky Goswami that tried to smuggle in contraband in Maharashtra’s Thane district.

The police seized approximately twenty tonnes of ephedrine in a record haul from a Solapur factory earlier this month.

The development came as investigators revealed on Wednesday that Mamta’s Kenya-based husband, Vicky Goswami, was the kingpin of the drug operation.

Police officials said that this is an international racket and Vicky is the main link to it and that they are probing the actress’s role in it too.

Vicky was named as the prime suspect after the police received information about his operations from the United States’ Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) on Tuesday.

Mamta who is believed to be in Kenya currently, made her Bollywood debut with the 1992 movie ‘Tirangaa’.
