A man was awarded 15-year imprisonment after he was found guilty under the NDPS Act on Thursday.
A fine of Rs 1 lakh was also imposed on him by additional sessions judge JS Bhinder.
The Chabbewal police had arrested Parminder Singh, alias, Pindi, of Aslamabad colony here, and recovered a cache of habit forming drugs from his possession in May 2012.
During a special patrolling, the police had recovered 250 bottles of Rexcof syrup, 105 injections of Norgesic, 285 injections of Avil and 360 gram of narcotic powder from unlawful possession of Parminder Singh, alias, Pindi, a resident of local Aslamabad colony, who was neither a chemist nor possessed any licence.
The court decided on the quantum of sentence taking into consideration the chemical examiner's report that maintained that 250 bottles of Rexcof contained nearly 25 kilogram of codeine, an opiate, which made a huge commercial quantity.
