Siddhanth Kapoor drug case: Veteran actor Shakti Kapoor's son and actor Siddhanth Kapoor who was arrested on Monday when his medical reports confirmed his consumption of drugs has been released on bail. The actor was detained from a party at a five-star hotel in Bengaluru. Hours after his release, Siddhant took to Instagram and shared a selfie with a woman on a flight. He added a red heart, folded hands, and evil-eye amulet emojis to the picture, in which he can be seen sitting with the woman on the flight. Both of them had their masks on their faces. This marks Siddhanth's first post after he was arrested for alleged consumption of drugs. However, it seems like he has now deleted the image.

We have already arrested him and are following the procedure. We will be sending him to judicial custody."
Acting on a tip-off, police raided a hotel on MG Road in the city on Sunday night where a party was hosted. "Last night we got info that a party is going on and they have consumed drugs. We raided and detained 35 people. We didn't find any drugs on their person but found MDMA and ganja disposed of nearby. We will investigate CCTV to check who disposed of it," added DCP Guled.
