Blind Item – April 2018 3
Alright, so the blind item below is being spoken about. Honestly, we weren’t surprised because we have heard most of it. Of course, some parts are exaggerated and some parts might be untrue. The thing is, this blind item is by CDAN, which is a Hollywood blind item site or gossips site. We have mentioned about CDAN before with a warning that some of their stuffs are fabricated and are not true. What they do is, they get emails about particular news or blind items and they just publish it.
The highlighted in bold part in the blind item is the part that we don’t think happened. Why? Because a similar incident was reported about the same director, except in that scenario was the main culprit and made the lady’s mother watched. We are sure some of you had heard this story before and when you see the blind item, you will connect the dots. We cannot blame CDAN for that because they don’t know anything about Bollywood, they only received this info and published it without any fact checking.
Most people familiar with the scandals in Bollywood know about what this director did to one of his leading ladies. Word on the street was, he forced himself on most of his leading ladies and that time, he was a very famous and bankable director. He did what the blind item is suggesting they did to his wife, he actually did that to a leading lady of his and made the mother watch. If you wonder why some old time actresses stay away from Bollywood once they get married, it’s because of the torture they went through. They are more than happy to stay far away from the dirty land of Bollywood!
Also, note that this actress’ significant other back then couldn’t be on Indian soil. We don’t know whether he was forbidden or barred from coming to India back then, but he wasn’t around that time to do what the blind item is saying he did.
Enough said, just check out what we are talking about below.
Four For Friday - The Trafficking Train
A lot of moving parts here that involve not just sex trafficking, but also drug trafficking and an obscure piece of geography that makes it all possible.
A couple of decades ago, this foreign born actress was the hottest actress in her country. She wanted to be known. She pushed the boundary of what was socially acceptable in that country and eventually paid the price when the public wanted her to reign it in a bit and she refused. The last movie she made, she was kicked off when she wouldn’t sleep with the director. That all changed when a mafia leader in the country went to the home of the director with three other men and raped the director’s significant other at the time while making the director watch. The next day, the actress was back on the film, but it was her last.
That mafia leader became the husband of the actress and they moved to the Middle East to, you guessed it, Dubai. There they started trafficking in men to be exploited in the construction industry and in women to supply maids and housekeepers for private homes. Those women were often sexually assaulted by their employers and also abused and even in some cases murdered.
Other women were trafficked to the country solely for use as sex workers for the men working in the construction industry.
The pair never got into any trouble for any of the human trafficking, but did get in some hot water for drugs. They had paid enough in bribes over the years though, that a potential death sentence just led them to having their visas revoked and they were kicked out of the country.
The couple then found themselves in an African country. Kenya to be exact. There they continued their human and sex trafficking business and added Kenyan women to the growing list of people they were shipping all over the world. What brought them down again was their thirst for more money and drug trafficking. They just couldn’t stop and they were busted.
In order to get a lighter sentence, they sold some people higher up in the food chain to authorities and also dropped a lot of high powered names around the world who were the recipients of these women for their “household staff.” A shocking number of them went through Canada to the US by a fluke of geography that allows a piece of what should be mainland Canada to actually be located in the US. The border there is porous or non existent and once across, the trafficked women can be moved easily to another state.
The way it worked was the women would be flown from India to Canada where they didn’t need a visa or were able to easily get one and then walked across the border to the US where they were then put on a boat for an hour to a more easily accessible US location. The couple estimates they shipped 500-600 women that way that were basically sex slaves to their employers. Over the past few years, some of those employers have been exposed when their “employees” have managed to escape.
Actress: Mamta Kulkarni
Husband: Vicky Goswami
Mumbai: Non-bailable warrant has been issued by a special court against former Bollywood actress Mamta kulkarni and alleged international drug mafia Vijaygiri aka Vijay Goswami in a 2,000 Cr drug bust case.
The investigating officers claim to have gotten ‘clinching evidence’ against the duo, based on which they intend to file a chargesheet. The non-bailable warrants were issued by a special court led by H M patwardhan on Monday.
Both Kulkarni and Goswami are on the run ever since their names cropped up in the drug case.
Shishir Hiray, special public prosecutor for the prosecution, sought the warrant from the special court in a marathon submission and told the court that they have ample evidence against Kulkarni and Goswami and their alleged involvement in the drug case as prime accused.
Based on the confession of an arrested accused, Hiray said that Kulkarni and Goswami are main culprits in the case and had set up a well-oiled drug cartel. From procuring raw material of ephedrine from India to a well-planned transportation and manufacturing of methamphetamine in Kenya, the duo was involved in the entire process.
The arrested accused- Jai Mukhi and Kishor Singh Rathod- during the investigation apparently told the investigators about meeting in a hotel in Kenya where a deal was struck between Goswami and his aides, Akasha borthers, Mamta Kulkarni, ex director of a pharmaceutical company, Manoj Jain, Jai Mukhi and Abdullah.
“Ample technical evidence, call records are in possession of the investigators and various facts have been revealed during questioning of the arrested accused and statements made by them,” Hiray reportedly told the court.
Kishor Sinh Rathod, one of the arrested accused and son of a former Congress MLA from Gujarat, told the investigators that they (the accused) were to make Mamta Director of a company.”They also had plans to make Mamta a director of Avon Life Sciences Pvt Ltd,” Hiray reportedly told the court.
Police made frequent visits to Mamta and Goswami’s houses and recorded statements of people who knew them. Hiray produced a case diary before the court and finally got warrants issued against the duo.
Goswami, who got busted through a sting operation conducted by US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) officers, is in US custody while Mamta is absconding.
Mamta’s involvement was refuted in September 2016 by a bunch of domestic and international lawyers.
