BTech student caught for trafficking hashish

After attending BTech classes in Amity University, a 22-year-old undergraduate headed for his dose of glamour in the upscale party circuit. To meet his expenses, he started selling narcotics brought from Himachal Pradesh but ran out of luck and landed behind bars.

Raghav Sehajpaul’s ring of drug suppliers and customers, including women, has now been exposed by the Narcotics Control Bureau with his arrest along with a private Volvo bus driver Ramlal and his helper Krishan Chang from the hill state who were bringing the contraband for him. Both are residents of Manali.

Around 1.5 kg high-quality hashish, brought from Manali in the private tourist bus, was seized during a raid in Timarpur in north Delhi on Sunday, said an NCB official.

Rohit Sharma, Delhi zonal director, NCB, said: “Raghav sold high-quality hashish known as Malana Cream in party circuits.”

He took to trafficking to earn quick money and had a huge clientele among students in Noida-based universities, Sharma said.

“Raghav sold small packets of 10 gm Malana Cream for Rs 3,000-5,000 and many students in his own university were hooked to it,” said an investigator, adding a case under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act has been filed.

NCB officers said the hashish seized in Timarpur was concealed by wrapping it in papers and tapes, a common modus operandi adopted to hoodwink enforcement agencies.

“Initial investigations have revealed that a part of the seized contraband was meant for the use of students of Amity University,” said an official.

Questioning revealed that Ramlal and Krishan had earlier brought a number of hashish consignments, each weighing around 250-300 gram, to be delivered to different parties, said an NCB official.
