Acting on a tip-off, police raided a hotel on MG Road in the city on Sunday night where a party was hosted. Siddhant Kapoor was among those arrested.
“Last night we got info that a party is going on and they have consumed drugs. We raided and detained 35 people. We didn’t find any drugs on their person but found MDMA and ganja disposed of nearby. We will investigate CCTV to check who disposed it of,” added DCP Guled.
Samples of people suspected of having consumed drugs were sent for medical tests and Siddhanth’s sample tested positive. Police said it was unclear whether they had consumed drugs at the hotel or had come to the party after taking drugs outside.
Earlier on Monday, the arrests were made after Usloor police raided a five-star hotel in the city on Sunday night on a tip-off.
“As part of our ongoing drive against (narcotics) drugs, based on credible information, police have raided a party at a five-star hotel in the city. There were more than 100 people at the party. When we subjected 35 persons to a drug test, five people tested positive. We have taken them into custody,” said Bheemashankar S Guled, deputy commissioner of police (east).
Guled said most of the people attending the party were not from the state. “All the five people, who have tested positive, are not from Karnataka. However, three of them were living in the state for some time. The fourth person was from Punjab and the fifth person is from Mumbai and a DJ (Disc Jockey),” the police officer said.
