Shootout At Wadala actor Siddhanth Kapoor, who was held on charges of consuming drugs in Bengaluru, was released on bail late on Monday night.

Siddhanth and the four others who were arrested were released on station bail with a direction that they have to depose before the police as and when required, a police officer said.

Siddhanth was detained by police on Sunday night at a five-star hotel on MG Road, Bengaluru, during an alleged rave party.

"It is confirmed that Bollywood actor Shakti Kapoor's son Siddhanth Kapoor took drugs. He tested positive for taking drugs in the blood test report," Deputy Commissioner of Police Dr Bheemashankar S Guled had told reporters on Monday.


About 35 people present during the party were subjected to medical examination and five of them, including Siddhanth, were confirmed to have consumed drugs.

In the raid, police also seized seven 'Ecstasy' pills and a packet of marijuana from the party area.

The accused were booked under section 22A, 22B and 27B of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.
