A Delhi man was sentenced to 10 years in jail for possessing 18kg of the drug hashish, or hash, a concentrated form of marijuana.

He was arrested in 2011 for carrying the drug into the city. The police said he was planning to sell it. A Thane court sentenced Amit Brijmohan, 33, a resident of Nand Nagri in New Delhi, to 10 years of rigourous imprisonment and fined him Rs1 lakh under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

The case dates back to 2011, when Amit and two others were arrested from the Kashimira bus stand in Bhayander with the hashish. They had brought the drug to sell it in Mumbai.

District judge Hemant Patwardhan said while hearing the case last week the evidence brought before the court was consistent, reliable and sufficient to prove Amit was guilty, beyond reasonable doubt.

“I therefore, do not hesitate to record my findings against point in affirmative,” he said.

The judge accepted Amit’s request to be transferred to a Delhi jail as his family lives there. The court said, “The jailer is directed to consider the transfer of the convict to Central Jail at Delhi, if the rules in respect thereof permit.”
