Navdeep and film producer Ravi Uppalapati were also named in the case but declared absconding.

The police then issued summons to the makers of the recently released Telugu film ‘Baby’ for outright portrayal of drug abuse and its glorification.

However, the actor had approached the Telangana High Court seeking directives to the police not to arrest him and had applied for anticipatory bail in a lower court.

The police had cited 10 other people as customers in the case including a few high profile businessmen and persons linked to the film industry.

Additionally, raids were carried out at Navdeep’s house on September 19 in his absence, following which the officials claimed that they had found ‘solid evidence’ against Navdeep which shows that he used to buy narcotic substances from the people caught in the drug bust.
