A special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Court in Mumbai rejected the Bail plea of a 21-year-old allegedly found in possession of 20 LSD blots weighing a commercial quantity in 2020.

The Sessions Judge M.G Deshpande observed that, “Paper, gelatin are carrier materials. Paper contains fibre. Once the blot is dropped on paper, it occupies all fibres thereof. One who consumes LSD cannot separate the blot/droplet from the paper and requires to consume the whole mixture of blot/droplet and paper stirp.”

The Court cited the Supreme Court judgement in Hira Singh on weighing a mixture to decide its quantity, and also that age of the accused ought not to be taken into consideration for Bail when the offence is of such grave nature.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) through its special Public Prosecutor, received the information that the accused was a drug trafficker.

The NCB conducted a raid with a team comprising Zonal Director Counsel Director Samir Wankhede, Superintendent V.V Singh and others.
