Bengaluru: As the city police widened its probe into alleged drug abuse in Kannada film industry with the arrest of another actress, the Karnataka government on Tuesday said it would strengthen the legal system to ensure procedural lapses don’t allow those apprehended to escape the law.
The Central Crime Branch (CCB), probing the drug abuse in ‘Sandalwood,’ as the Kannada film industry is popularly known, arrested Sanjjanaa Galrani after raiding her Indira Nagar residence early on Tuesday, police said.
State Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai said the government would strengthen the legal system to ensure that the people arrested in the drug cases do not ‘escape’ due to procedural lapses.
Galrani’s arrest comes days after the CCB officials picked up her industry colleague Ragini Dwivedi for allegedly supplying drugs to people at high-end parties in the city.
Galrani was arrested at the end of a CCB raid at her residence here early this morning, police said.
