LUCKNOW : Believe it or not, the Mathura police has informed special court (NDPS) that Rats “ate” more than 500 kg of marijuana that was confiscated and kept in the warehouses of the Shergarh and Highway police station.
This startling revelation was came to fore when the court ordered Mathura police to provide the marijuana seized in a case filed under the NDPS Act earlier this year.
Hearing this odd claim, the additional district judge ordered SSP Mathura Abhishek Yadav to get rid of the “mice menace” and provide proof that rats actually consumed precisely 581 kg of marijuana worth Rs. 60 lakh.
The Mathura police, in its clarification to the court, said, “Being small in size, rats have no fear of the police. SHOs cannot be experts in solving every problem.”
