Actor Vivek Oberoi’s home in Mumbai was searched by the Bengaluru police today in connection with a drugs case allegedly involving his brother-in-law Aditya Alva.
“Aditya Alva is absconding. Vivek Oberoi is his relative and we got some information that Alva is there. So we wanted to check. So a court warrant was obtained and Crime Branch team has gone to his house in Mumbai,” a police officer said.
The home of Aditya Alva in Bengaluru was also searched.
Aditya Alva, the son of former Karnataka minister Jeevaraj Alva, is accused in a case involving drugs allegedly being supplied to singers and actors in the Kannada film industry, also known as “Sandalwood”.
Actors Ragini Dwivedi and Sanjjanaa Galrani were arrested in the case.
