Chaturvedi was arrested on August 2, 2005, and the police had allegedly recovered three grams of Cocaine from his residence.
Earlier, Provogue's Manager Vishal Meghlani was arrested on January 26, 2005, from the city airport for possession of Cocaine.
Meghlani had then reportedly told the police that Chaturvedi, film director Ken Ghosh and Bollywood actor Fardeen Khan [Images] were his clients. Following this, police arrested Chaturvedi and raided his residence where they allegedly recovered the drug from the bathroom.
