Bail provided for alleged drug peddler due to non-compliance of law

Devendra Dangi vs State of Madhya Pradesh | High Court of Guwahati | Status: Disposed off | |

Devendra was arrested and imprisoned under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985. Most lawyers refused to represent him and he was also unable to get assistance from the Legal Aid Services by the State. Swapnil filed an application to suspend the sentence and grant bail in the matter. Swapnil argued that the provisions of Section 50 of the NDPS Act, which are to be to be followed were contravened by the police. The court after hearing arguments provided bail to Devendra Dangi.
