Bharatiya Janata Party leader Rakesh Singh, who was named in a drugs case by the party’s youth-wing activist Pamela Goswami, was arrested by Kolkata police on Tuesday.

Arrest came hours after police raided Rakesh Singh’s residence in connection with the case. The search operation was led by the Anti-Narcotics & Anti-Rowdy sections of the Detective Department of New Alipore police station.

BJP leader Pamela Goswami, who was also arrested in the case on Friday along with her friend Prabeer Kumar Dey & her security guard after 90 gm of cocaine was allegedly found in her possession, had time and again named Singh in the case.

During her arrest, she demanded a CID probe into the matter & also stated that BJP Leader Rakesh Singh had ‘planted people to keep drugs in her vehicle’. She also claimed that Rakesh Singh was close to BJP’s national general secretary & observer of west Bengal, Kailash Vijayvargiya.

Meanwhile, fearing arrest, Singh had filed a PIL before Calcutta High Court, seeking quashing of a notice by the police to appear before it in connection with a drugs case. However, the court dismissed the plea on Tuesday
