- An NCB official said only a heart check-up was done before being arrested in a drug case
- Senior Advocate Ujjwal Nikam said NCB should have tested the blood of celebrities.
Bollywood has been accused of being part of a drug syndicate since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. The Bureau of Narcotics Control has questioned Riya Chakraborty, Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Bharti Singh and others in this regard. However, none of these were tested for blood in the context of medicine. This was confirmed by an NCB official. Blood samples from Arjun Rampal and Harsh Limbachia were also not taken for drug testing.
‘Usually there is no medical examination’
“Usually no medical examination is done for the accused’s drugs. A normal heart checkup is done before arrest. There is a misconception in the media that Bharti Singh has been investigated in terms of drugs. It did not happen,” the official said. General medical checkup has been done. The same thing applies to Deepika, Sara, Shraddha, Arjun etc. No blood test of the drug was done even after the number 1 of the crime. “
‘Bharati’s case is small, only traffic congestion allegations’
So how will the crime of the accused be proved? When asked, the official said, “Since the NDPS Act came into force, there has been no blood test. It is not a practice. It is not a common practice. In some cases, the state drug department has never given drugs.” It has been tested keeping in mind. But this is not a common practice. Bharati’s case is small. He has only been charged with consumption. The blood test of the accused caught in a drug case should be done, it is not part of routine practice. “
‘Blood tests have nothing to do with justice’
The official added: “There is no connection between the blood test and conviction, trial and justice. It is also a crime for the accused to take certain amount of drugs. The amount of punishment is punishable. In some cases, blood tests were done occasionally. So far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange.
There are two types of complaints in the case of medicine: Ujjwal Nikam
Talking to Daily Bhaskar Senior Advocate Ujjwal Nikam about this, he said that NCB should have tested the blood of all celebrities. Nikam said, “There are two types of allegations in the case of drugs. One is possession of drugs and the other is drug use. In the case of Deepika, Sara, Shraddha, Bharati, etc., it is a matter of conviction or possession.”
‘NCB should have had blood test’
Nikam added, “If there is a case of drug use, it is important to do a blood test. However, blood tests are not done only in cases of possession. I think I should have had a blood test for the rest of Rhea. “
‘To rely on the officer to check or not’
Nikam said, “In the case of a celebrity, it is a matter of drug addiction. If it is a habit, then the person concerned must have taken the drug on the day of the investigation or one evening. The blood test was done. However, it depends on the investigating officer whether he wants to take the test. .
Finally, Nikam said, “If anyone has taken the drug a month or two ago, there is no doubt even after a blood test. Ar 86 grams of narcotics were found from Bharati Singh or the same amount found from Arjun Rampal.” Accordingly, the sentence will be fixed. These are incidents of occupation. Not a conviction. So, blood tests are not very important here. “
‘Celebrity has no clean chit’
The NCB official said, “The case of a celebrity like Arjun Rampal has not been fully covered yet. The big paddlers who have been caught are being processed. Yes, no celebrity has received a clean chit. Everyone is being prepared a chargesheet. The direction is the same. However, Deepika, Sara, Shraddha did not give a clean chit to anyone. “
“Whether to challenge the High Court’s decision in the rest of Riya Chakraborty’s case will be discussed by the NCB DG in Delhi. Now the NCB has found more evidence in the case. Chargesheets are being prepared against them,” the official concluded.
