A city court on Monday sent Kannada actor Ragini Dwivedi and four other accused to 14-day judicial custody and on the other side, extended the police remand of another starlet Sanjjana Galrani by three days. According to the Central Crime Bureau police, Ragini along with four other accused, including a Senegal national, Galrani’s friend Rahul Ranka and alleged drug supplier Loum Pepper Samba, were arrested around 11 days ago in connection with a drugs case.
A few days ago, Ragini Dwivedi had to give her urine sample, and she purposely mixed water in her sample and handed it over to the doctors who were conducting a drug test on her. As per a report, she was taken to the KC General Hospital in Malleswaram, Bangalore on Thursday for a drug test in the case. The doctors figured out that the sample given by Ragini was contaminated and informed the CCB officer who was part of the investigation.
Ragini Dwivedi is the first mainstream actor who has been nabbed by the police (on September 6) in the Kannada drug racket out of 15 others who were named in the case.
