Rats eat away drugs seized by cops: SC told

DNA (Delhi) - - DELHI -

Courts are told that rats eat away drugs seized by the po­lice when nar­cotics cases come up for hear­ing, said the Supreme Court on Thurs­day as it delved into is­sues re­lat­ing to de­con­gest­ing of po­lice sta­tions in Delhi.

It also asked why im­pounded or seized ve­hi­cles, which con­tinue to lie at the po­lice sta­tions, are not sold in cases where no­body comes for­ward to claim their own­er­ship even af­ter sev­eral years. A bench of Jus­tices Madan B Lokur, S Ab­dul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta made th­ese ob­ser­va­tions as the Delhi Po­lice said a pol­icy would be framed in four weeks on steps to de­con­gest the city po­lice sta­tions by re­mov­ing or dis­pos­ing of seized or im­pounded ma­te­ri­als and ve­hi­cles.
