Sandalwood Drug Scandal Case: Aditya Alva Moves Karnataka High Court Seeking Quashing Of FIR

Aditya Alva and four others were charged under Section 120B of the Indian Penal Code for criminal conspiracy and various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 (NDPS) Act. 

Aditya Alva made a plea in the Karnataka High Court comprising a bench of Justice Suraj Govindara to revoke the First Information Report (FIR) made against him in the drug case.

Meanwhile, the Central Crime Branch (CCB) informed the court that while making a search in Alva’s house in September, they found some evidence in connection with the Sandalwood drug scandal case such as Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) pills, marijuana, and other materials. Thus, the plea made by Aditya Alva should not be entertained.

Aditya replied that all the allegations made against him are false and that nowhere in the complaint was there any mention of the commission of a cognizable offence.

Out of the four others listed in this case, one Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi also filed a petition stating that the takeover of the drug was not from her and thus she cannot be allocated the same. Therefore, she prayed that she should be granted bail in the drug case.

The court heard the case and left the matter to be heard on November 13, 2020.
