"Actress Ragini Dwivedi Makes The Bail-In Drug Case".
Supreme Court granted bail to Kannada film actress Ragini Dwivedi, arrested for her alleged involvement in a Sandalwood drugs case.
Nearly four months ago, Kannada Actor Ragini Dwivedi was arrested in a drugs case, and this morning, she was granted bail by the Supreme Court, which said no drugs had been found at her home and her arrest was entirely based on statements of other accused.
The actress was arrested in Bengaluru in September last year, over allegations of links with an international drug cartel involved in supplying psychedelic drugs at rave parties and other events.
She was charged under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act of consuming and supplying drugs.
The actress had challenged a Karnataka High Court order rejecting bail on November 3. She had claimed that the prosecution had framed her in the false case to attract public attention. She also alleged she had been kept in jail beyond 100 days without any proof or recovery of drugs from her.
