The police seized his mobile phone and laptop, and have summoned the producer for questioning.

On February 26, the police had arrested three foreign nationals who were allegedly involved in drug peddling and recovered synthetic drugs worth ₹3.5 crore from them. They had allegedly named former Bigg Boss contestant Mastan Chandra, whose residence the police had raided. Based on information gathered, the police also raided Gowda’s residence.
