new Delhi: Recently a lookout notice was issued against Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi’s brother-in-law Aditya Alva in connection with the drug scam in the Kannada film industry. Aditya, who is the son of late minister Jeevanraj Alva, has been absconding for the past one month as police have initiated action against drug peddlers, suppliers and rave party organizers.

On Thursday, the Bangalore police raided Vivek Oberoi’s Mumbai-based residence in search of Aditya Alva.
A top police officer told PTI, “Vivek Oberoi is his relative and we got some information that Alva is. Therefore a court warrant was obtained and the team of the Central Crime Branch went to his house in Mumbai. “
Aditya Alva is absconding in a drug case registered at the Cottonpet police station. More than 15 people have been arrested so far in the alleged drugs case, including Kannada film actresses Ragini Dwivedi, Sanjana Galrani, rave party organizer Viren Khanna, realtor Rahul Thons, and some Nigerians.
Last month, the Karnataka CCB raided a property owned by Nandini Alva, the mother of Aditya Alva.
Police have also interrogated Ricky Rai, son of former underworld don-social activist Muthappa Rai, a day after his house was raided in Hebbal in northern Bengaluru. The police believed that Ricky had given asylum to Aditya Alva and so they called him to come in reference to the whereabouts of the accused. The police also suspect Ricky Rai as he is in contact with some of the accused in the Chandan drug scam.
