Constitute Special Committee For Monitoring Drug Cases At State Level To Weed Out Drugpeddling: Manipur HC To State Govt

Case: Md. Tamijur Rahaman v. The Officer-in-Charge, Lilong Police Station, Manipur and others

Coram: Justice M. V. Muralidaran

Case No.: AB No. 27 of 2022

Court Observation: In the instant case, even though the petitioners could not be spotted, the arrest of the two accused and their statements and also a collection of materials, particularly, against the petitioners, a prima facie case has been made out against them. It would not be appropriate to discuss all those materials in great detail at this stage…Though there is no direct proof to show that the petitioners have received Rs.1.5 lakh for the release of Ershad Khan, the phone call summaries of the petitioners with the arrested accused produced by the learned Advocate General during the course of arguments prima facie prove that the petitioners had contacted the accused person, particularly Ershad Khan, his father Md. Zahaya Khan and Md. Islauddin. Thus, the prosecution has prima facie established the involvement of the petitioners with the crime,

“Day in and day out, news appears in the newspapers qua possession of narcotics and psychotropic substances and its seizure from the accused and their arrest by the special team. In the history, the State of Manipur is called as jewelled land/Kangleipak or Meeteileipak. In such a beautiful State, the illegal acts of transporting, smuggling and selling the narcotic drugs is being done by the accused persons which has a drastic affect on the society at large and such illegal possession/transportation/smuggling, apart from selling, of narcotic drugs is to be eradicated in the State,”
