Bengaluru, Jan 21, 2021: Kannada Actor Ragini Dwivedi, arrested in a drugs case, was granted bail by the Supreme Court today. She was jailed in September over allegations of links with an international drug cartel. The actor had challenged a Karnataka High Court order rejecting bail on November 3.
Ragini Dwivedi, 30, was arrested by the Crime Branch in Bengaluru and accused of links with an international ring involved in supplying psychedelic drugs at rave parties and other events.
She was charged under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
She had claimed that the prosecution had framed her in the false case to attract public attention.
Ragini claimed she had been made an accused and kept in jail beyond 100 days without any proof or recovery of drugs from her.
