A special court granted bail to Rahul Mahajan on Wednesday after observing that the Delhi Police failed miserably to quantify the drug seized from him and prove the charges of him financing drug deals and harbouring peddlers.

“Nothing worthwhile has been placed on record as yet to show that accused Rahul Mahajan has been indulging in systematic and organised trafficking of drugs or was found in possession of commercial quantity,” said special judge Swarn Kanta after granting bail to Mahajan. The judge directed Mahajan to furnish a personal bond of Rs 2 lakh and a surety of the same amount, and ordered him not to leave Delhi and India without its permission till the chargesheet was filed.

The court also rejected the police’s claim that Rahul was involved in financing the contraband. "The investigating agency was not able to distinguish between financing through one single transaction for personal consumption and a series of financial transactions,” said the court order. Besides this, after acknowledging the fact that Mahajan’s blood test proved consumption of heroin, the court suggested “he needs professional help for being rehabilitated”.
