Sanjjanaa_GalraniBANGALURU : Kannada actress Sanjjanaa Galrani has been arrested after the Bengaluru Police widened its probe into the illegal drug market and its alleged links with the Kannada film industry.
The development comes in the wake of city police arresting actress Ragini Dwivedi for supplying drugs to people at high-end parties in the city. Galrani was arrested at the end of a CCB raid at her Indira Nagar residence here early this morning, they said.
A team of officers armed with a search warrant raided the actor’s house and conducted searches. Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Sandeep Patil said besides Sanjana’s house, the residence of another accused in the case, Viren Khanna, was also raided after obtaining search warrants from the court.

The actor was questioned today before she was taken into custody, officials said. He arrest comes days after the arrest of another Kannada actress, Ragini Dwivedi, on drug-peddling charges.
“Sanjana’s name was revealed by the peddlers who were arrested last week. Based on their information and the details we have gathered, the raid was conducted,” an official said.

According to CCB, Galrani was under its radar ever since her friend Rahul, a realtor, was booked in connection with the drug case, they added. Sanjjanaa was born in Bengaluru.
She made her film debut in a Tamil movie ‘Oru Kadhal Seiveer’ in 2006. She has acted in a Kannada movie ‘Ganda Hendathi’.

Meanwhile, the police also raided the house of Viren Khanna, who has already been arrested by the CCB sleuths in connection with the drug abuse in the film industry.So far 13 people have been booked and six arrested.
Ragini Dwivedi was arrested on Friday after her home was searched the same morning. Besides her, two people named Rahul and Viren Khanna were arrested. Ragini Dwivedi is in police custody which was extended by another five days on Monday.
Six people have been arrested in the drugs case so far. The police questioned Ms Galrani based on the interrogation of a person named Nayaz on Monday.
The police had on Thursday arrested Ravi Shankar, who has links within the Kannada film industry, in connection with the drugs case and a court has sent him to police custody for five days. He is a clerk in the Road Transport Office.
According to police, Viren Khanna is a big catch. “He (Khanna) is the main person who organises big parties where drugs are consumed. He was in Delhi and two CCB police inspectors had gone to Delhi and arrested him,” police officer Sandeep Patil had said last Friday.
“In the search at Viren Khanna’s house, along with other things, one fake ‘police’ uniform was found with belt, cap, shoes and no stars,” Mr Patil said today.
Ms Galrani was born in Bengaluru. She made her film debut in a Tamil movie “Oru Kadhal Seiveer” in 2006. She has also acted in the Kannada film “Ganda Hendathi”.
