Mumbai: Indradev Pandey
The Azad Maidan Police Unit of the Anti Narcotics Cell conducted a raid in Paidhuni on Friday. 150 grams of MD drug worth Rs 15 lakh have been seized from there. The team of DCP Datta Nalawade has arrested the accused named Ayaz from there. The team of Senior Inspector Dattatraya Masvekar and Sachin Kadam had been keeping an eye on him for the past several days.
Ayaz was also reported by some police inspectors and was running a drug racket under the guise of giving news, an official said. Last month, a video of a policeman stopping a late night car in South Mumbai went viral.
According to sources, the man seen in the video is the same accused. In a separate case, Khar police arrested a drug supplier two days ago. It is suspected that he had supplied drugs to some students at the party held in Khar on the night of 31 December. That night, 19-year-old Jahnavi Kukreja was killed in a fight between some students. Police has imposed Murder Section 302 in that case and arrested two students – Shri Jogdhankar and Diya Padalkar.
About a dozen students attended this New Year party. The police have got everyone tested urine and blood, so that it can be known who took the drugs that night. The police is also investigating if some students had taken the drugs, had they consumed them before coming to the party or were they supplied during the party itself This whole matter came to light when the investigation team found that one of the arrested accused, Mr. Jogdhankar, had taken the Cannabis before the party started.
