Just like the Bollywood film industry, the Sandalwood industry has also come under the scanner in the drug-related case. The Central Crime Branch had allegedly begun their probe into the drug trafficking case and have arrested several people so far.
On Tuesday (September 15), Karnataka Police conducted searches at former Karnataka minister late Jeevaraj Alva's son Aditya Alva, who is also the brother-in-law of Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi.
Aditya Alva is named one of the 12 accused in the Sandalwood drug scandal.
Speaking to India Today, joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) said, "Search warrant was taken and search being conducted at Aditya Alva house near Hebbal called 'House of Lives'."
The development comes a day after Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi arrested last week in the police crackdown against drug abuse in the film industry. She remanded to 14 days judicial custody by a court in Bengaluru.
So far, the Karnataka police have arrested Ragini Dwivedi, Sanjjana Galrani, Viren Khanna, Aditya Alva, and a few others in its crackdown against drug abuse in the film industry.
