Following the issue of a notice to film director Indrajit Lankesh for his remarks about a Sandalwood- drug mafia link, Joint Commissioner (Crime) Sandeep Patil said the city police are working hard to track all those involved. He said the police have traced drugs being peddled through the darknet. He said the free helpline 1098 could be used by people to provide information.
Patil said a probe would begin once Lankesh responds to the CCB notice.
Recently, the NCB arrested the alleged drug kingpin, D Anikha from Kerala, and 3 others for supplying drugs to some actors and music directors.
City Police Commissioner Kamal Pant said the NCB is investigating the Sandalwood angle, and the police are ready to share any information with the central agency.
