On September 23, two police officials have been suspended recently on charges of leaking information related to the CCB probe to the rave party organisers and others.

 

The Central Crime Branch police raided five pubs in the Bengalooru city as part of its crackdown against the drug menace.

According to the official report, the searches were carried out on Saturday night. However, Police have not shared any information on the outcome of the raids.

"In the drugs case investigation, we found that generally drugs are taken in some pubs. So, search warrants were taken and five pubs searched yesterday night," Bengaluru Joint Commissioner of Police Sandeep Patil said.

The police have started a drive against the drug abuse in the city and have arrested a few Kannada film actresses, drug peddlers, rave party organisers among others as part of the investigations.

The crackdown came in the backdrop of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) busting a drug racket here.

On September 23, two police officials have been suspended recently on charges of leaking information related to the CCB probe to the rave party organisers and others.

According to the report, Assistant Commissioner of Police, MR Mudhavi of the Woman Protection Wing, Central Crime Branch (CCB) police and head constable Mallikarjun were suspended.

After the internal enquiry about two police officials, Sandeep Patil submitted a report to the Bengaluru city police commissioner Kamal Pant, and recommended suspension of two police officials. According to Patil based on the report, the government suspended them.

The CCB unearthed the drug scam while probing cases related to a few peddlers who were arrested last month. 
Based on preliminary inputs, the CCB conducted searches on Sandalwood's sizzling stars, Ragini Dwivedi, on September 4 and four days later, on Sannjanaa Galrani's house.

After the search, these stars were arrested and since then they have been lodged in Parappana Agrahara Central jail. 

The CCB has so far arrested more than a dozen drug peddlers and high-profile event organisers in this connection.
