ED interrogates Bigg Boss 16 fame Abdu Rozik; Know why

Popularly known for his stint on Bigg Boss 16, Abdu Rozik was questioned on Tuesday by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for a money laundering case involving narcotics dealer Ali Asghar Shirazi, according to news agency ANI.

According to the ED, Abdu showed up at the Mumbai office on Tuesday afternoon to give his statement.

Prashant Patil, Abdu’s attorney, reportedly stated unequivocally that his client is only involved in this case as a prosecution witness against a man named Kunal Oza.

“The Enforcement Directorate called my client, Mr. Abdu Rozik, to testify as a prosecution witness against a man named Mr. Kunal Oza.” Mr. Abdu Rozik has traveled from Dubai to provide his statement under section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act as part of his obligation to the law enforcement agencies in our nation, according to India Today, which quoted Patil.

Bigg Boss 16 co-contestant Shiv Thakare was questioned by the investigative agency last week, and Abdu Rozik was summoned by the ED.

According to a Free Press Journal report, Ali Asghar Shirazi founded Hustlers’ Hospitality Pvt Ltd, which provided funding for a number of businesses, including those of Abdu Rozik and Shiv Thakare. It involved Abdu Rozik’s Burgir, Thakare Chai and Snacks, and Shiv’s food and snack restaurant. Narco-funding appears to have generated revenue for the company.

In addition, Abdu Rozik has dabbled in the fast food startup space, launching the Burgiir burger brand in collaboration with Hospitality Through Hustlers.

For those who don’t know, Abdu established a burger restaurant in Mumbai last year. Sonu Sood was among the many celebs who attended the inaugural event.
