On Thursday, two suspected drug peddlers Ravishankar and Rahul Shetty had been arrested by the CCB. Ravishankar, a Karnataka govt transport dept employee, was a close aide of Dwivedi, because of which she was summoned for questioning.

“As far as I know, he is a nice person, he has acted in small roles. If he has done something wrong, I don’t know why my name is getting mixed up in this, ” Said an indignant Galrani to media persons.

In all, there are 12 persons accused in the sou motu case taken up by the police in West Bengaluru.

So far four of the 12 have been arrested.

The fourth is Viren Khanna who was picked up by CCB inspectors from Delhi, allegedly a well-connected individual who organizes big parties that see a free flow of drugs. Ravishankar has suspended from his government job also, pending an investigation into his role as a drug supplier.

The investigation continues based on inputs gleaned during the Interrogation of the three, besides checking their phone records. It is now widening to the second layer of their networks, pant said.

“They (Ravi and Rahul) procured drugs from a foreign national. We have zeroed in on that natl as well. Certain information was given by him on past incidents. Our officers are working on that,” Pant said.

London Bridge Down: Death of Queen Elizabeth brings a moment of reckoning for Britain



queen elizabeth ii

LONDON: Queen Elizabeth II has died in Scotland aged 96 after battling health problems since last October, the Royal Family announced Thursday. Doctors had placed the queen under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle, her estate in the Scottish Highlands.

Buckingham Palace has just released the following statement: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

Her close family rushed to her bedside as doctors grew “concerned” about her health on Thursday, Buckingham Palace said. Her grandson and his wife, Harry and Meghan Markle – who had a public showdown with the Palace, flew in from Canada.

According to news agency AFP, the Queen pulled out of a planned meeting with her senior political advisors on Wednesday, after being told to rest. The previous day she had audiences at Balmoral – her Scottish Highlands retreat, with outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson and appointed his successor, Liz Truss.

In recent months, the Queen appeared visibly frail and had a series of withdrawals from public engagements. She had taken to walking with a stick and was also seen touring the Chelsea Flower Show in a motorized buggy.

In June, the UK came together for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the British throne. Her husband, Prince Phillip, died last year at the age of 99, two months before his 100th birthday.

Queen Elizabeth II’s tenure as head of state spanned post-war austerity, the transition from empire to Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War and the UK’s entry into – and withdrawal from – the European Union.

Her reign spanned 15 prime ministers starting with Winston Churchill, born in 1874, and including Liz Truss, born 101 years later in 1975, and appointed by the Queen earlier this week. She held weekly audiences with her prime minister throughout her reign.
