HYDERABAD: The 48-hour-long interrogation session of alleged prime accused in the drugs racket, Calvin Mascarenhas and his aides Abdul Waheed and Abdul Quddoos, did not yield much for the sleuths of Special Operations Team of Prohibition and Excise department.
The officials feel that Calvin is taking them to a boring climax-like situation, where he claims to have not been in contact with anyone else except those who were summoned and to nothing else except what he has already said during initial questioning, said sources.
The custody of the accused trio, which mainly focused on collecting evidences based on confessions of Calvin and find the sources and consumers of drugs along with the role of event managers, has disgruntled the police, with the alleged kingpin giving repeated answers to questions.
Sources, however, are confident about evidences collected so far, both technical and circumstantial, and the senior officers want to take custody of the accused for few more days to make a breakthrough.
“There may be few more persons who would be summoned,” sources said quoting senior officials of the enforcement wing of Excise department.
The SIT is also expected to take custody of an event manager Brenden Ben and drug maker Piyush, who were arrested later during the probe.
