New Year drugs bust: NCB arrests four students from universities in Delhi-NCR
Four students of premier Delhi-NCR-based institutions – the DU, JNU and Amity University – have been arrested by the NCB as part of a major New Year eve crackdown against drugs rackets.
The agency, at the end of a three-day long operation that started on December 28, said it has also seized 1.14 kg of charas (cannabis) and three LSD (Lysergic acid Diethylamide) blot papers that were supposed to be supplied to the party circuit of students in and around the DU’s North Campus and other similar locations for New Year celebrations.
The Delhi Zonal unit of the NCB identified the four, arrested under the provisions of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS), as students of reputed academic institutions. Two are from the Hindu College and one student each from the Jawaharlal Nehru University and the Amity University.
“Aniruddh Mathur (22), Tenzin Phunchog (23) and Sam Mallick (21) are all abusers of charas and used to get it from Gaurav Kumar (22).
“They have also informed that abuse of drugs is rampant in the Delhi University campus area. They have given information about drug peddlers and others involved in the racket which is further being verified,” NCB Deputy Director General (North) S K Jha said.
