A huge drug scandal rocked the Karnataka film industry recently and two big names from Sandalwood have already been arrested by the Central Crime Branch (CCB) of Bengaluru. And it appears as though the cops have now found a bigger interstate nexus involving, actors, celebrities and drug peddlers. Among those arrested are celebrity party planner, Viran Khanna. The cops believe he organized events to cater to expats close to actress Ragini Dwivedi.

The CCB sleuths are now apparently probing the interstate link and how drugs were brought into Bengaluru from other parts of the country. It’s being said that the drugs entered the city via Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Maharashtra, Punjab and Kerela. The sudden arrest of actress Ragini Dwivedi had come as a huge shock to Sandalwood. The CCB cops had landed at her home early in the morning on September 5 for questioning her regarding her links to the drug scandal. Following her arrest, actress Sanjjanaa Galrani was also nabbed.
