While CCB is digging deep into Sandalwood Drug connect, the Internal Security Department (ISD) is silently tightening noose around film stars, television personalities and a cricketer with regard to drug abuse.

On Monday, the ISD interrogated Kannada cinema hero Yogi alias Loose Mada  and cricketer N C Ayyappa and have issued notice to couple of television industry personalities.

Last month, ISD had arrested a drug peddler and had registered a case against him. ISD ADGP Bhaskar Rao said that the peddler had revealed a lot of names during interrogation.
"We have a list of names and we are interrogating them one by one," Bhaskar Rao said.

Apart from Yogi and Ayyappa, ISD has also questioned two girls from television industry — Rashmi Chengappa and Nishchitha. Nischitha is Executive Producer at a private television channel. Both Ayyappa and Yogi denied any link with drug peddlers.

Meanwhile, ISD has issued notice to two more television actors — Abhishek and Geetha Bharathi Bhat to appear before them on Tuesday morning.
