“In connection with this case (drug case), we had summoned Diganth and Aindrita Ray.. they had appeared for the inquiry. A detailed inquiry was done and we got lots of information,” he said.

Speaking to reporters after being questioned by CCB officials, Diganth said that the probe in the case was in progress and he and his wife were cooperating with the investigation.

“We will come (again to appear before CCB) if we are summoned,” the actor said. D

Diganth had made his debut with the Kannada film ”Miss California” in 2006 and acted in a number of movies. Aindrita Ray started her career in the Kannada film industry with the movie ”Meravanige”.

She is best known for her performance in the movie ”Manasaare,” in which she played the role of a mentally challenged girl.

The couple, who married in 2018, was holidaying in Kerala when they were summoned for questioning. They were questioned in the drugs case registered at the Cottonpet police station, in which Kannada actresses Ragini Dwivedi, Sanjjanaa Galrani and others have been arrested. The CCB’s case is that many Sandalwood A-listers were into substance abuse, regularly attending drugs parties and procuring narcotics from peddlers.
