Please watch the YouTube Video on the topic of NDPS Act – Needs Urgent Review on the NISSMAT YouTube Channel:
The arrest of Aryan Khan under the NDPS Act (Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Act) and delay in granting him bail have been the subject of heated discussions in the media. Neither he had consumed any drug nor any quantity was recovered from his possession yet the lower courts rejected his bail petition. He had to remain in jail for about 22 days till the higher court granted the bail. In this incisive interview, the discretionary powers of the enforcement authorities and the prevailing lacunas in the Act have been discussed. There is perhaps an urgent need to suitably amend this Act.
