Acting on a tip-off, the police raided a hotel on MG Road where a party was hosted. The cops sent the samples of 35 people suspected of having consumed drugs. Siddhanth Kapoor’s sample was among five that returned positive.
As many as 14 women and 21 men attended the party. All of them had claimed that they did not take drugs.
The police have since arrested five persons in the case. The accused have been identified as DJ Siddanth Kapoor, Akhil Soni, Harjot Singh, Hani and Akhil, a free lance photographer.
According to police, two packets of drugs were found near the dustbin. One had four rose coloured fills and other had three blue coloured pills.
Son of Hindi film star Shakti Kapoor, Siddhanth Kapoor is also an actor who portrayed the character of Chintu Dedha in the 2020 web series ‘Bhaukaal’. He also acted in several movies, such as ‘Shootout at Wadala’, ‘Ugly, ‘Haseena Parkar’, ‘Chehre’, etc. He also worked as an assistant director in films like ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Chup Chup Ke’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyya’, and ‘Dhol’.
Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha Kapoor was among those who were questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau in the case of the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput over alleged possession of drugs. However, nothing substantial was proved.
Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, and Deepika Padukone were questioned in September 2020 based on WhatsApp chats that the NCB had unearthed during its investigation of the drugs case that came to the fore after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
