Sidhhant was invited as a DJ at a party organised in the Park Hotel’s pub in Bengaluru on Sunday night where he allegedly consumed drugs. Acting on a tip-off, police conducted a raid at the hotel and subjected 35 guests to medical tests. Six guests turned positive for consuming drugs including Siddhanth Kapoor.
