Sandalwood Drug Scandal: Reports claim Ragini Dwivedi mixed water with urine sample to avoid detection of drugs

According to reports, the CCB sources said that the doctors at the hospital were able to detect water in the urine sample. This was because of the temperature difference.The temperature of human urine lies between 90 F and 100F. However, when the temperature was  less, the doctors believed that the urine sample might have been mixed with water to avoid detection of drugs. 

After discovering this, the officials made Ragini drink more water and made her give another urine sample. The officials have informed the court of this incident and said that the toxicology report will reveal the truth. 

 Ragini Dwivedi's house was raided by police a few days before her arrest. They seized her laptop and phone. CCB also retrieved chats between Ragini Dwivedi and a man named Simon, who is believed to be from an African country. In the chat, Ragini asked Simon for drugs in a code language. 

The drug scandal in the Sandalwood industry came to limelight after late journalist Gauri Lankesh's brother Indrajit who is a filmmaker as well claimed the connection between the celebrities in the industry and drugs. He was reportedly questioned by CCB and he gave 15 names.
