Kannada actress Sanjjanaa Galrani has been taken for questioning as Bengaluru Police widened its probe into the illegal drug market and its links to the Kannada film industry. The questioning of the actor comes days after the arrest of another Kannada actress, Ragini Dwivedi, on drug peddling charges.
Searches were conducted at the home of Ms Galrani this morning by the Central Crime Branch of Bengaluru Police after getting a search warrant from a court. She has been taken to the office of the Central Crime Branch for questioning.
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.
Sanjjanaa Galrani was under the radar of the crime branch ever since her friend Rahul, a realtor, was charged in connection with the drug case, officials said.
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”.
