Bengaluru: Sandalwood star couple Diganth Manchale and Aindrita Ray were asked to appear before the CCB office on Tuesday.

The couple was asked to arrive at the CCB office at 11am on September 16 through a telephonic notice.

Aindrita Ray promised on her Twitter handle to arrive at the CCB office and co-operate with the CCB officials.

As mentioned in the tweet, the couple arrived at the CCB office at 11:08am on September 16.

It is reported that the CCB has close to 44 questions to be asked to the couple, regarding the Sandalwood drug scandal.

Unlike actresses Ragini and Sanjjanaa, the couple’s residence was not raided by the CCB and they were not brought to the CCB Office in the department’s vehicle. 

The couple arrived at the CCB office in their private car along with their lawyers.

There are reports that the couple had contacts with the drug kingpin in this case, D Anikha. However, the CCB has still not confirmed the same.
