Rahul, 5 others chargesheeted for drug abuse

New Delhi, August 3
The Delhi Police today filed the chargesheet against Rahul Mahajan, son of late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan, and five others in the drug overdose case.

Additional Sessions Judge S.N. Gupta issued notices to all accused to be present in the next hearing on August 5.

Besides Rahul, the police also chargesheeted co-accused Sahil Zaroo, Harish Sharma, Rahul's servant Ganesh and two Nigerians Abdul Lateef Ashola Mohammad and E.James Taiwo.

However, another Nigerian accused Ebrahim was not named due to lack of evidence.

Chief Public Prosecutor B.S. Joon has filed the chargesheet.

During the investigation it was found that, accused Sahil Zaroo had used a car for transporting drugs from Vasant Vihar to the official residence of the slain BJP leader Pramod Mahajan where Rahul was staying.

The doctors in Apollo Hospital had deliberately misled the police regarding the treatment and Rahul's health status. Hence, a complaint under Section 182 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered against the management of the hospital, the chargesheet said.

“The filing of the chargesheet will be a significant step in this case and I indeed believe the court would very soon take cognisance of the chargesheet,” said B.S. Joon.

Rahul was chargesheeted under Sections 21, 25, 27 and 27-A of the NDPS Act, whereas Sahil was chargesheeted under Sections 21, 27, 27-A of the NDPS Act. Ganesh and Harish Sharma were chargesheeted under Sections 201and 34 of the IPC for destruction of evidence and common intention to commit a crime. — UNI
