Expressing her inability to depose before CCB immediately, the actress, in a tweet said, “I consider it my duty as a citizen to humbly participate in any questioning that the police might have. I have nothing to hide and have no connection with any unlawful activity which is being probed by the CCB police.”

Dwivedi said her advocates have appeared on her behalf before the police and explained her inability to turn up. Her lawyers have sought time till Monday.

“As I received it (notice) at a very short notice, I was unable to appear today before the CCB police…. I am committed to appear on Monday morning before the police,” she said in another tweet.

Drug menace in the Kannada film industry has become a talking point, after the Narcotics Control Bureau of India arrested three persons in Bengaluru for allegedly storing and supplying drugs to singers and actors here.

Filmmaker and journalist Indrajit Lankesh had given his statement to the CCB about the drug abuse in the ”Sandalwood”. He had also claimed that at least 15 people in the industry were involved in drug business.
