An NDPS court in Kolkata has extended the police custody of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader Pamela Goswami and other accused in the drugs case till March 18.
The BJP youth leader was arrested last month for allegedly possessing cocaine in her car in Kolkata. Pamela Goswami was found with 100 grams of cocaine in her bag and the car seat.
Social worker and politician, BJP youth leader, Goswami joined the party in 2019 and was enlisted in the BJP camp at a press conference held by state BJP president Dilip Ghosh. This was shortly after Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee’s July 21 meeting in 2019.
Goswami was also a model before joining politics. She was also an air hostess and a Bengali television actress.
Pamela Goswami had alleged that she was “framed” as part of a “conspiracy”. The BJYM leader also accused BJP’s Rakesh Singh, considered to be a close aide of Kailash Vijayvargiya, of “sending his men to plant” the pouches of cocaine recovered from her vehicle by Kolkata Police.
West Bengal Police on February 23 arrested BJP leader Rakesh Singh from Galsi in Purba Bardhaman district in connection with the drugs case. The arrest was made by the Detective Department as Rakesh Singh was apparently trying to flee the state.
