Bengaluru: Modelling and drugs is a familiar paradigm, but this model has allegedly taken it a notch further and turned a trafficker.
Darshitmitra Gowda, the winner of the Miss Queen Karnataka 2014, was arrested by the Bengaluru police on Thursday on charges of trafficking drugs to college students in Bengaluru, Goa and Mangaluru.
The case relates to a NCB raid on November 30, 2015, when the agency raided an apartment in RT Nagar, Bengaluru where Gowda was staying with her boyfriend Nishant. The NCB sleuths had recovered over 100 gms of cocaine, 20 gram hashish, 1 gram MDMA and one LSD blot during the raid. It came to light that Nishant was running a drug trafficking racket in multiple locations.
During interrogations Nishant revealed that Darshitmitra was a member of a gang supplying drugs and handled the financial transactions.
The NCB had earlier issued summons to Gowda and was arrested when she appeared before agency on Thursday.
