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.

30-year-old Dwivedi, who has over 25 films to her credit and has won the SIIMA award too eight years back, had consulted lawyers abt the case too. She had evaded questioning on Thursday citing illness. On Friday she appeared before the CCB.

Shetty, a known name in film circles, is a close friend of another prominent actor Sanjana Galrani, who has acted in al four South Indian languages. Her role too is being investigated, though she said she only knew Shetty through other film networks.

“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.

“CCB has been working on this for the last one month, ” Said Bengaluru police commissioner Kamal Pant, at a press conference Friday evening.

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.
