Mumbai: Police files charge sheet against 8 people in a drug seizure case

Mumbai: According to an official, the Mumbai police’s Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC) on Friday filed a lengthy charge sheet against eight people in a special court in connection with the discovery of mephedrone worth approximately Rs 2,500 crore. According to him, the 4,818-page report was submitted to the special court established by the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS Act).

The official said the charge sheet was filed against eight accused persons, who were arrested by the Mumbai crime branch for manufacturing the synthetic stimulant drug, popularly known as meow meow. All the accused persons, booked under the NDPS Act, are currently in jail under judicial custody, he said.

Last month, the ANC conducted raids at Nallasopara in adjoining Palghar district, Ambernath in Thane district and in a follow-up action at Ankleshwar in Gujarat, and seized mephedrone valued at around Rs 2,500 crore and also arrested eight persons, the official said.

The investigation in the case was still on, he said. After unearthing the drug manufacturing chain, the ANC will now start work on tracing the supply network, the official said.
