Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court heard the bail pleas of three accused arrested by the NCB on Friday – Samuel Miranda, Deepesh Sawant, and Abdel Basit Parihar. After the hearing, the HC observed that the bail applications have raised some important points about the law and section 27A of the NDPS Act under which most of the arrested people have been accused of financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders. The court scheduled the next hearing for September 29 to decide whether the drugs syndicate allegation even applies in the case or not.
All accused were ordered to stay in judicial custody until then. Earlier, it was reported that alleged drug peddler Karamjeet Singh aka KJ reached HC to say that he was forced into making statements during interrogation by the NCB team. In his application to the court, KJ’s lawyer mentioned that his client was physically assaulted by the anti-narcotics agency and coerced into making a statement. He also argued that the cash that was seized by the NCB team from his house belonged to his mother who had sold her jewellery to have money and they even had a bill to prove the same.
