Kannada actor Sanjana Galrani has been arrested as the CCB police widened its probe into the illegal drug market.Sanjana Galrani, along with her mother, were detained by the crime branch police of Bengaluru, for their alleged involvement in a drug case. She was formally arrested on September 8, 2020 and remanded to five days police custody.

Galrani and her mother were sent to the CCB office situated in the Chamrajpet area of the city for further interrogation. A senior police official said that a search was being conducted at Galrani's residence in Bengaluru after a warrant was obtained from a court. Police sources said she came under the radar ever since her friend Rahul Shetty, a realtor, was charged in connection with the drug case. According to police, Rahul was involved in ensuring celebrity presence in high-profile parties and procuring drugs for them.

Sanjana is a multilingual actor who has acted in over 45 films, predominantly in Kannada and Telugu. Her younger sister, Nikki Galrani, is also an actor who has acted in over 25 Tamil and Malayalam movies. Earlier, sources had said that two mobile phones were seized from her residence.

The Kannada film circle has come under scrutiny for alleged drug use after the Narcotics Control Bureau foiled an international drug trafficking racket in multi-city raids in August. It was then that the arrest of a kingpin led the police and the NCB to find drug trafficking networks among the Sandalwood industry.
