Bengaluru Cops
On Monday, 30 August, the East Division police in Bengaluru carried out a raid on a few celebrities and reportedly recovered narcotic substances. Based on the information given by the recently-arrested drug peddler Thomas, the raids were conducted by the cops on a few celebrities' residences that include Cosmetic industrialist Sonia Agarwal, industrialist Bharath and DJ Vachan Chinnappa.

Unfortunately, some media houses mistook cosmetic industrialist to the Tamil actress and wrongly reported that the Rainbow Colony actress was arrested in a Sandalwood's drug case.

"In connection with a drug peddler case registered at Govindapura police station, there were allegations on three celebrities. We had gathered enough evidence as well. Three separate teams are conducting searches at the houses of celebrities in these areas. We will be getting more details once the search is completed in all places," Deccan Herald quotes a senior police officer as saying.

It may be recalled that actresses like Ragini Dwivedi and Sanjjanna Galrani were arrested last year in connection with the drug case.
