Actor Arjun Rampal is doing everything he can, to clear the stain on his and girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades’s reputation after her brother, Agisilaos Demetriades was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). NCB had allegedly seized a small quantity of drugs from Agisilaos, following which he has been sent to judicial custody.
While Rampal doesn’t deny the involvement of Agisilaos in the drugs racket, he said that there is no involvement from his and his partner’s side. He stated that he is ‘shocked and taken’ by everything that is going on. But he remains very clear on his words that although the incident involves a person who is a relative of his partner, he or his direct family have no connection with the said incident.
In a bid to clear his name, he said, “I request the media to not make headlines using my name as we are NOT related and this is causing hurt and confusion for my own family and the people I have a professional relationship with.”
In a statement, Sameer Wankhede, zonal director, NCB Mumbai said that Agisilaos’s arrest is in connection with one of three cases, related to drugs. He added that during a raid conducted, small quantity of hashish (charas) had been discovered from his residence in Pernem, north Goa, on Friday.
