CCB Searches Vivek Oberoi's Mumbai Residence to Find His Brother in Law in Sandalwood Drug Case

After Vivek Oberoi‘s brother-in-law was named in Sandalwood Drug Case, now the actor’s house in Mumbai has been reported to be searched by the Central Crime Branch in connection to the drugs case.

As per a report by Times Now, the authorities were allegedly searching for Vivek’s brother-in-law Aditya Alva, the son of former Karnataka minister Jeevaraj Alva. According to PTI’s report, a police officer stated, “Vivek Oberoi is his relative and we got some information that Alva is there… So a court warrant was obtained and the Central Crime Branch team has gone to his house in Mumbai.”

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.
