A Delhi court on Friday ordered the Delhi Police to submit all the drugs tested for by the drug test department in its operations to the Central Drug Testing Agency (CDPTA).
The order came in the plea filed by advocate Gaurav Pandey, who is challenging the drug testing of some accused in the drug case of Sangeet Som.
In his plea, Pandey alleged that the Delhi police is not following the norms of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act and has a bad record in conducting drug tests in cases.
He also alleged that drug tests by the police are not being conducted properly and that the police has been violating the provisions of Prevention of Drugs and Narcotic Paralysis Act, 1972 (PDPA 1972) and Prevention of Dangerous Drugs Act (PDDRA).
The petitioners also alleged irregularities in the testing procedure.
The Delhi police, in a statement issued on Friday, said the officers will submit all drug tests results in the next two days to the CDPTA.
It further said that the drug tests are being conducted by trained officers and not by the officers themselves.
It further said the police will also submit the results of drug tests conducted by others as per their requirement and will also be allowed to continue performing drug tests at their convenience.
