Acting on a tip-off, police on Friday reached the top floor of the paying guest premises where the accused was living. On searching Akashdeep’s room, police recovered 80 gm of drugs, including, 60 gm heroin and 20 gm ice, along with 25,000 drug money and an electronic weighing scale for the drugs, from him.

Crystal methamphetamine or meth is a strong, addictive stimulant drug which has a crystal-like appearance, hence its name, said police, adding that its overdose could cause chest pain, breathing problems, fits, unconsciousness, brain stroke, heart attack and even death.

A case was registered against the accused under Sections 21, 61, & 85 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act at the Balongi police station. Police obtained a remand after presenting the accused in a court.
