Puri Jagannadh is having a torrid time explaining the The Enforcement Directorate (ED) team who questioned leading Tollywood film director Puri Jagannadh for nearly 10 hours on Tuesday in connection with a money-laundering probe linked to a four-year-old drug case.
Jagannadh, who, along with his chartered accountant, appeared before ED officials after he was summoned in connection with the probe, left the ED office Tuesday night.

The ED officials are reported to have recorded director Puri Jagannadh statement and quizzed him about some financial transactions. Producer Bandla Ganesh also arrived at the ED office in the evening, triggering speculations that he too was summoned.
He, however, clarified that he came to the ED office only to meet his friend Jagannadh but was not allowed. He requested media not to link him with the case.
