Delhi High Court sets aside city court order under NDPS Act
The Delhi High Court set aside an order passed by a Patiala House Court where the accused was charged under NDPS Act for having illegal possession of 704 unlabelled Bupine injections.A single bench of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait allowed and disposed of the petition against the order passed by the Magistrate and Assistant Session Judge, Patiala House Court and opined that both the orders are bad in law and deserve to be set aside.
The counsel for the petitioner argued that the petitioner has been roped in the case and made a scapegoat in the original proceedings as the case property has been planted upon the petitioner.During the course of investigation, the respondent filed an application under Section 52A NDPS act before learned MM for disposal of seized narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances which came to be passed against the petitioner. The order was upheld by the learned ASJ/Spl. Judge, Patiala House Courts.
