The Delhi High Court has rejected the bail request of a man who allegedly supplied drugs to peddlers, noting that “the threat has grown to alarming proportions which are having a deadly impact on society”.
Judge Subromonium Prasad said the effects of drugs on society had been spelled out in several judgments.
“It has been observed that the organized activities of the underworld and the clandestine smuggling of narcotics and psychotropic substances and the illegal trafficking of these drugs and substances lead to drug addiction among a significant part of the population, in particular adolescents and students. remarked Prasad.
According to the first information report, on September 11, 2021, a secret informant alerted Mandawali Fazalpur Police Station that Shakeel of Badaun would come to South Ganesh Nagar, Mandawali to slap a Gulshan aka Kallu between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.
The information was reported to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Eastern District, who ordered a raid.
The raid party was waiting at the Ganesh Nagar Underpass when Shakeel handed over a polythene package to Kallu.
Upon seeing the police, Kallu and Shakeel attempted to escape but the raid team overpowered them. A black polythene bag was recovered from Kallu which contained 270 grams of smack.
The investigation revealed that Shakeel had been to Delhi on several occasions and he revealed that he had obtained a smack from Sakir and Nushrat Khan.
On October 11, 2021, Nushrat was apprehended and he revealed he was involved in the sale and purchase of smack. He used to buy the smack from Zahid, Kabil, Ram Bharose, the petitioner in this case, Shakir Hussain and Pooran.
Petitioner Bharose, who was subsequently arrested, asked the High Court to seek bail.
Denying his request for bail, the court said that Bharose is charged with an offense under various sections of the Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Act.
“The investigation is in its infancy. The allegation against the applicant [Bharose] is that he is the person who supplies the drugs to the hawkers for distribution to the consumers. The amount involved in this case is 270 grams of smack, which is a commercial amount, ”the court said, dismissing the bail application.
