The Central Crime Department police raided 5 pubs within the metropolis as a part of its crackdown in opposition to the drug menace.
The searches have been carried out on Saturday evening, they stated.
“Within the drug case investigation, we discovered that generic medicine are taken in some pubs. So, search warrants have been taken and 5 pubs searched yesterday evening,” Bengaluru Joint Commissioner of Police Sandeep Patil stated in a short assertion on Sunday.
Police haven’t shared any data on the end result of the raids.
The police have began a drive in opposition to the drug abuse within the metropolis and have arrested just a few Kannada movie actresses, drug peddlers, rave occasion organisers amongst others as a part of the investigations.
The crackdown got here within the backdrop of the Narcotics Management Bureau (NCB) busting a drug racket.
Two police officers have been suspended just lately on fees of leaking data associated to the CCB probe to the rave occasion organisers and others.
