In a major development, Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi was arrested by Karnataka police in connection with a drug racket. This is the first time a South Indian actor got arrested in a drug case.
The police on Friday raided the house of Ragini Dwivedi in Bangalore and found incriminating materials. She was questioned by the authorities for hours and later was arrested.
The drug case has shaken up the Kannada film industry. The police have arrested four people in connection with the case. Several other big names have also appeared in this racket. Actress Sanjjana in a statement slammed the reports that she too has involved in the drug racket.
Ragini Dwivedi is not known much to the Telugu audiences though she played one of the female lead roles in Nani starrer ‘Jenda Pai Kapiraju’.
