Aditya is accused of being involved in a drug case that involves many artists from the Kannada film industry. The Sandalwood drug racket was exposed earlier this year by Kannada filmmaker Indrajit Lankesh. As per reports, Alva along with two other prime accused are on a run since the police launched a crackdown against the drug peddlers, suppliers, and others connected to the case.
Along with Aditya, 11-12 more names had been booked by the CCB and are reported to have been arrested in the case. Actress Ragini Dwivedi and Sanjjanaa Galrani are also under the judicial custody of the agency.
