Siddhanth Kapoor who was recently arrested in a drug case has now praised the Bengaluru police for their commendable work. The recent statement was released after his arrest in a drug case.
The actor was arrested following a raid at a party in Bengaluru on Sunday and was released on bail on Tuesday, after a day-long interrogation, reported Hindustan Times.
The actor and filmmaker on Tuesday broke his silence for the first time in a statement he issued after he was released by Bengaluru police. He said that he has been cooperating with the investigation.
The official statement read, “I was at the hotel and there was an investigation going on. I have been cooperating. The Bangalore police have been really good, they are doing a great job. They should continue what they are doing to save many lives.”
Meanwhile, Siddhanth’s lawyer Praveen Muguli also expressed his views on the statement and noted that Siddhanth will cooperate with the police and go to Bengaluru whenever he is asked to.
Earlier on Wednesday, Siddhanth had shared a selfie from a flight suggesting his departure from the city.
His lawyer said, “The alleged offences are bailable in nature. Yesterday he (Siddhanth) was released on bail. Today he came for a statement. The police have recorded the statement. He will cooperate and he will come for investigation purposes. Anytime he’s asked to come, he will corporate with the police. The matter is under investigation. I can't say anything now. If this really happened, police will file a charge sheet. (Right now) he is cooperating with the investigation."
Recently, Shakti Kapoor had spoken about his son Siddhant’s arrest and pointed out that his son was in Bengaluru, as he plays as DJ at parties, but added that he can't believe the charges against him.
Meanwhile, Siddhanth's sister, actor Shraddha Kapoor, has not yet commented on the matter.
