Delhi Police unsuccessful in tracking ‘Meow Meow’
Delhi Police has failed to seize a single consignment of popular party drug ‘Meow Meow’, despite its rampant use in the national Capital, even after the drug’s induction in the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act six months back.
While the existing network has come in handy in providing leads in cracking cases relating to other hard drugs such as cocaine, heroin, pseudo-ephedrine, LSD and even methamphetamine, it has failed with regard to Meow Meow, said an official in the Narcotics Wing of Delhi Police Crime Branch.
“The presence of Mephedrone (Meow Meow) in party circuits of Delhi-NCR and its rampant trade in certain parts of the city are known to the police,” the official said.
However, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said the city police have a ‘dedicated’ team tracking drug trade. “We have made several good catches in connection with heroin, cocaine and other drugs. We shall continue our efforts with regard to any sort of banned narcotic or psychotropic substance being traded in Delhi,” Yadav added. In Delhi, it is suspected that Mephedrone sold at around one-tenth the value of cocaine has created a new customer base for itself in the city's party circuit, especially among youngsters.
