The Central Crime Branch (CCB), which is probing the Sandalwood drugs case, has conducted searches at Aditya Alva’s house in Bengaluru. “Search being conducted at Aditya Alva's - son of former minister Jeevaraj Alva - house in connection with the ongoing investigation in the drug case in the state,” Sandeep Patil, Central Crime Branch (CCB), Joint Commissioner told ANI on Tuesday.
Former Karnataka minister late Jeevaraj Alva's son Aditya Alva, who is also the brother-in-law of Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi, is among the 12 accused in the Sandalwood drug scandal that has rattled the state.
The search comes a day after Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi, arrested last week in case, was remanded to 14 days judicial custody by a court in Bengaluru. The court also remanded another actress Sanjjanaa Galrani to judicial custody.
Recently, the Narcotics Control Bureau, which busted an international drug racket, confiscated a large cache of drugs and arrested three drug peddlers, had indicated that drugs were being supplied to some prominent musicians, Sandalwood actors, children of VIPs and college students.
