Aditya Alva, an accused in the high profile drugs case in Karnataka, has been arrested, police said here on Tuesday.
Alva, son of former minister late Jeevaraj Alva, has been absconding for the past five months ever since the state police launched a crackdown against drug peddlers, suppliers and rave party organizers.
He was arrested on Monday night in Chennai, based on a tip-off.
Kannada film actress Ragini Dwivedi, Sanjjanaa Galrani, party organizers Viren Khanna, Aditya Agarwal, RTO clerk KRavishankar, a few Nigerians and several others were arrested already in this connection.
However, Aditya Alva remained at large.
Police launched a crackdown on the drug traffickers, peddlers and consumers after the Narcotics Control Bureau arrested three people from Bengaluru with drug haul last year.
The trio had told the NCB sleuths that they were supplying drugs to Kannada film actors and singers.
