Sandalwood drugs case: Aditya Alva sent to 7-day police custody

Bengaluru, Jan 13 (TIWN) The special NDPS court in the city on Tuesday sent Aditya Alva, one of the prime accused in the Sandalwood drugs case, to seven-day police custody. Alva was on the run after the infamous Sandalwood drugs case came to light last year with the arrest of actress Ragini Dwivedi.

With Dwivedi’s arrest on September 4, and the subsequent arrest of another actress, Sanjjanaa Galrani, on September 8, the Sandalwood drugs case caught the public imagination, and Alva was on the run since then.

Alva is the brother-in-law of Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi.  He was produced before the special NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) court on Tuesday evening via video conference and was immediately sent to seven-day police custody, the police said.  The Bengaluru Central Crime Branch police had nabbed Alva, the son of late Janata Parivar leader Jeevraj Alva, from near Chennai late on Monday night.  Confirming the arrest to the media, Bengaluru Joint Police commissioner (Crime) Sandeep Patil had stated that Alva, who was absconding for over four months, was arrested on Monday night.
