A bench of Justice Muhammad Yaqoob Mir while rejecting the bail petition of the accused, Shahid Farooq and Shabir Ahmad Wani held that the trial court had framed charges against them for committing offences under section 8/20 of the NDPS Act.
On September 25, police had stopped a Sumo at Pandrethan and recovered one kg of Charas from the procession of an accused woman, Haseena.
The accused had divulged to police that she is a member of an organized group and she had supplied contraband to other two accused Shabir Ahmad and Shahid Farooq who were arrested by the police on the same day. The other two accused in the case were identified as Tafazul Khaleel and Javaid Ahmad.
The Pantha Chowk police had investigated the case and had filed a chargesheet against the five accused in the trial court.
The trial court framed charges against the five accused and rejected their bail on the grounds that they belong to an organized group involved in Narcotics trade.
Following the rejection of their bail by the trial court, two of the accused filed a petition before the High Court.
