Sanjjanaa Galrani sent to prison for two days; will share room with Ragini | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: A local court on Wednesday remanded actress Sanjjanaa Galrani, arrested in the alleged drugpeddling case, in judicial custody till September 18.
Another court remanded event manager Viren Khanna and RTO staffer Ravi Shankar in 14-day judicial custody.
The I Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court, where Sanjjanaa was brought, ordered that she be produced before the special court for Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) cases on September 18. Her advocate was asked to apply for bail in the NDPS court.
Advocate Srinivas Rao, appearing on behalf of Sanjjanaa, argued that she should be produced before the special court for NDPS cases. Rao pointed out that CCB police had not mentioned sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act under which Sanjjanaa has been arrested. “Police have not mentioned the sections in the three successive remand applications. There is no clarity in the FIR, in the investigation or in the findings,” he claimed.
Sanjjanaa’s fellow accused, including actress Ragini Dwivedi, were on Monday remanded in 14-day judicial custody.
Soon after the hearing, CCB police took Sanjjanaa, Khanna and Shankar to the Central Prison, Parappana Agrahara.
The three were taken to the jail hospital where they were subjected to routine medical check-up. Their swab samples were collected for Covid-19 test. All the accused will be lodged in the newly built female prisoners’ building until their quarantine is over.
“Sanjjanaa (undertrial number 6833) will be lodged in the same room as Ragini Dwivedi. The room measures 15ft by 20ft and is enough for two. Since they will be in quarantine, we will not allow them to come out of their barracks. Sanjjanaa too has to eat prison food,” jail officials said.
Among the 11 arrested in the case, businessman Aditya Agarwal, bullion trader Vaibhav Jain and Benald Udenna are in police custody.
