"SIT carried out its investigation in an objective manner. The touchstone of the principle of proof beyond reasonable doubt has been applied. Based on the investigation carried out by SIT, a complaint against 14 persons under various sections of the NDPS Act is being filed. Complaint against rest 6 persons is not being filed due to lack of sufficient evidence," a press release by the NCB said.

“Glad that the legal principles have been rightly applied when deciding the question of filing of the complaint. Also glad that the department has had the courage and objectivity to do the right thing. Else sometimes one sees that once an arrest occurs a charge sheet follows as a matter of course. It is such situations which must make us ponder over the use of the power of arrest” Senior Advocate Amit Desai, who appeared for Khan told Bar & Bench.
