26 June 2012 - Actor Apurva Agnihotri, who rose to fame with popular TV serial Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin, was among the 44 people who tested positive for drugs consumed at a high-profile rave party at a suburban hotel last month, police said.
As many as 44 out of the 92 people who had been caught during a high-profile rave party at Oakwood Premier Hotel in Juhu on May 20 have tested positive for drugs, making their arrest inevitable, the officer said.
However, since the ravers are not accused of possessing a 'commercial quantity of drugs', they would get bail after the arrest, he added.
According to the officer, they can later apply for drug rehabilitation in a government hospital as per section 64 (A) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. They can then apply to the court for exemption from further action.
The hospitals took urine and blood samples to test alcohol presence and the same samples were also sent to a laboratory for drug tests. The results of 46 men were received yesterday, police said. Out of the 44, who tested positive, 27 had consumed cannabis, one had MDMA , while 16 had consumed both.
The results of the other 46 people, including two IPL cricketers, Wayne Parnell and Rahul Sharma (both played for Pune Warriors India) and 38 women have not been received yet, police said.
