Popular YouTuber and rising actor Shanmukh Jaswant, known for his stint in Bigg Boss Telugu and adored by fans across the Telugu-speaking states, made headlines when he was arrested in Hyderabad on charges of drug consumption. Reports flooded social media detailing how Shanmukh Jaswant and his brother were apprehended at their residence by law enforcement officials allegedly in possession of illicit substances, prompting an immediate investigation.

Shanmukh Jaswant and his elder brother Sampath Vijay were taken into police custody after authorities discovered their involvement with illegal drugs. The situation unfolded after a woman, purportedly Sampath Vijay's former partner, filed a complaint with the Narsingh police. Allegedly, the police, accompanied by the complainant, arrived at Sampath's residence, where they found the brothers indulging in substance use, specifically reported as marijuana.

The complaint stemmed from Sampath's past relationship with the woman, spanning a decade and even leading to an engagement three years ago. However, Sampath recently distanced himself and married someone else, which prompted the aggrieved ex-partner to file a police report accusing him of deceit.

During the police visit to Sampath's flat, Shanmukh Jaswant was reportedly caught in the act of drug consumption, leading to his immediate arrest along with his brother. Further developments in the case are awaited as authorities continue their investigation. Notably, this incident follows Shanmukh's recent involvement in a hit-and-run case just a month prior, adding to a string of legal issues. Previously, he faced charges related to drunk driving.

Shanmukh Jaswant, aged 29, rose to prominence through his captivating short films and his highly publicized relationship with fellow YouTuber Deepthi Sunaina. However, their romance came to an abrupt end following Shanmukh's participation in Bigg Boss Telugu Season 5, concluding nearly a decade-long relationship. Hailing from Visakhapatnam, Shanmukh pursued his education in Business Administration at GITAM before venturing into acting, notably appearing in the feature film 'Nannu Dochukunduvate.'
