Bengaluru: CCB police on Friday arrested Viren Khanna, whom they termed as a 'big catch' in the Sandalwood drug racket case. Bengaluru Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Sandeep Patil in a statement stated that Khanna is the main person who organises big parties where drugs are consumed. "He was in Delhi and two CCB police inspectors had gone to Delhi and arrested him," Patil said. Khanna has been remanded to 4-day police custody.
