Seized MDMA turns out to be urea – Times of Nation
Tiwari was arrested on September 6, 2022, by Morar Police under the NDPS and Arms Acts.The prosecution claimed that Tiwari was arrested by SI Sumitra Tigga and her team on specific information about contraband and that the cops had seized “720 gms of ‘MDMA’, two pistols and bullets” from them.
The sample was sent to the central forensic science laboratory, Bhopal, which said there was no MDMA and that the powder was urea. Tiwari’s counsel said that he was falsely implicated and had been in custody since his arrest. The high court granted him interim bail for two months. The counsel then sought compensation for Tiwari for violation of his personal liberty due to the police’s wrongdoing.
The Gwalior bench of the high court ordered that Tiwari be released on bail and ordered the DGP to payRs 10 lakh compensation to him within two months for wrongful confinement. The high court instructed the DGP’s subordinate officers not to repeat such an irregularity in the future. “The DGP is free to recover the amount from the erring officials,” the high court said.
After the high court ordered compensation, police sent seven more samples to the central forensic science laboratory in Delhi. The report was received on Friday and has been submitted in court. Sources say that the Delhi lab has not found any drugs in the samples.
