Police probing supply of drugs to Gurgaon concert

With the arrest of three men, Delhi Police are probing the possibility of drugs having been supplied to the crowd at American EDM artist Skrillex’s concert held in Gurgaon on Sunday.  One of the accused is a Nigerian national and police have recovered nine grams of party drug ‘meow-meow’.

A 23-year-old woman from west Delhi had collapsed and died at the concert, apparently due to a heart attack or suffocation.

Police said Nigerian national Victor, 42, has revealed that huge quantity of meow-meow and LSD was to be supplied at the concert on Sunday.

“Meow-meow also known as white magic stimulates the central nervous system. It is used in rave parties by youths as it is cheaper than cocaine,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Madhur Verma.

The two other accused in the case have been identified as Sanjeev Jaiswal, 25, and Umang Narang, 21. During interrogation, the three men told police that they used to supply drugs to students at North campus, Delhi University.

On October 10, Sanjeev and Umang, residents of Rani Bagh, were nabbed when they went near Inderlok Metro station to deliver meow-meow. Six grams of the drug was recovered from their possession. They revealed that it was supplied to them by Victor, a resident of Nawada.

Victor was also arrested at the instance of Sanjeev with three grams of meow-meow. He came to India in 2012 and his visa expired in 2013.

“Victor has also kept the caller tune of his mobile phone as cats and kittens meowing. For identification of genuine customers, it was kept mandatory to make cat’s voice on the phone,” Verma added. Victor procured the drugs from Mumbai.

A strict vigil has begun in the North Campus to curb the use of drugs in Delhi University. A de-addiction drive is also planned.
