Bengaluru police have arrested five individuals and seized narcotic substances, including MDMA pills, cocaine, and hydro ganja, during a raid on a rave party held on the outskirts of the city. 

The raid took place at GR Farms in Singena Agrahara village of Anekal taluk, where an actress was among the 101 guests.

Police Commissioner B Dayananda confirmed the presence of an actress at the party but did not disclose her name. He noted that attendees included both locals and people from other states. The raid uncovered a luxury car with a pass belonging to Andhra Pradesh MLA Kakani Govardhan Reddy, though no elected representatives were found during the operation.

“Following the raid, narcotic substances were discarded in dustbins, a swimming pool, and other places. However, we managed to recover the materials with the help of a sniffer dog squad,” Dayananda said on Tuesday.

The individuals arrested were identified as K L Vasu, V Ranadhir, Arun, Nagababu, and Mohammed Siddique. The party, held under the theme “Sunset to Sunrise Victory,” was organized to celebrate Vasu’s birthday and was hosted at a property owned by Gopala Reddy, Managing Director of Concorde, a real estate firm.

Hema alias Krishna Veni, an actress with over 250 films to her credit, denied attending the rave party. “I have not gone anywhere; I was in my farmhouse in Hyderabad,” she stated in a video.

Police have sent samples from about 95 party attendees for analysis and will take further action based on the results. The guests attempted to conceal their identities by covering their faces with paper and dustbin covers during the raid.

Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara commented on the incident, saying the party was organized by locals but attended by people from other states. “We have been making efforts to curb narcotics in the state, and the police will take appropriate action in this case too,” he added.

The Central Crime Branch conducted the raid following a tip-off, underscoring the ongoing efforts to combat drug-related activities in Karnataka.
