The Andhra Pradesh Police on Tuesday night arrested former air hostess and model Sangeetha Chatterjee from her residence in Kolkata for her alleged involvement in a red sanders smuggling case. She is charged with spreading smuggling network spread in six states in India and other countries, including China and Japan. Chatterjee will be produced before Pakala Court in Chittoor district later today. Sangeetha is wanted at least in four cases in Pakala, Yadamarri and Chittoor police stations in the last three years. She was actually arrested in Kolkata in May last year. However, when she was produced in a local court to seek a transit warrant, about 20 advocates had swung into action to get her bail.
The local court reportedly granted her bail directing to appear before Chittoor Court. Howeevr, despite six legal summonses, she did mark her presence in the Chittoor court. In December, the court issued a non-bail-able warrant against her. The Chittoor police deputed special teams about 28 times to Kolkata and Nagaland to hunt for her. Chatterjee is allegedly second wife of red sanders smuggler M Lakshman, who was arrested in July 2014 from Northeast of India. He has his first wife and family in Chennai, the police said. The police informed that Lakshman’s arrest, Chatterjee took over the business control. Her fixed and movable assets are under the police scanner. Chittoor deputy superintendent of police SA Razak told Mirror, “Sangeetha is wanted in many cases of red sanders smuggling. Today, we arrested her in Pakala case. She is also facing charges of involvement in illegal arms dealings. We will get more information in course of interrogation.”
