Vivek Oberoi Must Be Probed In Drugs Case, Says Maharashtra Home Minister

Actor Vivek Oberoi, a vocal supporter of the BJP who starred as Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an adulatory biopic, must be investigated for possible links to the drug abuse scandal being probed by the Narcotics Control Bureau or NCB, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Friday.

Mr Deshmukh’s comments came after a Congress party delegation met him with the demand following a raid at Mr Oberoi’s residence by the Bengaluru Police on Thursday in connection with the drugs scandal involving the Kannada film industry.

The police were looking for Vivek Oberoi’s wife Priyanka Alva’s brother Aditya who has been evading arrest after being named as in the drugs probe by the Central Crime Branch of the Bengaluru Police.

Priyanka Alva, the daughter of former Karnataka minister Jeevaraj Alva and Nandini Alva, has been served a notice by the Bengaluru Central Crime Branch as well, according to news agency ANI.
