"Handa, organiser of the rave party and director of Oakwood Premier Hotel, has been arrested under NDPS Act... as charas and cocaine were found at the venue. He has been booked under the Act," said a police officer.
Police had said last night that two IPL players from the Pune Warriors team, one of them a foreigner, were among the 96 persons who were detained following a raid.
