Twenty-seven-year-old beautician Nooria Haveliwala was not only drunk but also high on drugs when she knocked down three policemen and a motorcyclist at Marine Lines here on January 30. A policeman and the motorcyclist were killed.

Haveliwala would also be booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985, police said.

On Wednesday, the police received the Haveliwala’s blood reports from the forensic sciences laboratory. The reports said she was under the influence of alcohol and drugs when the accident occurred.

R.K. Padmanabhan, additional commissioner of police (south region), said the alcohol level in Haveliwala’s blood stream was 169mg/100ml of blood while she tested positive for morphine and cannabis. “The report only states that Haveliwala had consumed morphine and cannabis but the quantity in her blood has not been specified,” he said.

“We will now initiate proceedings on Haveliwala under Section 27 of the NDPS Act [consumption of drugs], which is a bailable offence,” added Padmanabhan.
