VADODARA: Alarm bells started ringing at M S University campus on Wednesday when a group of students nabbed a youth who was allegedly in possession of ‘ganja’.
After a long drama, Sayajigunj police, however, said that the youth was smoking a cigarette and was not in possession of ganja.
According to the students group, which identifies themselves as Gumbaj Group, noticed the youth rolling out ganja and consuming it while sitting beneath the famous arts faculty dome.
“When we saw him rolling ganja and questioned him, he was so sloshed that he entered into heated arguments with us and threatened,” said Mohammed Raiyan, a third-year student who along with Bashar Khan, faculty representative and another first year student Aadil had caught the youth.
The students group had also shot a video which shows the youth intoxicated.
The group called university’s vigilance staff which took him to university’s head office where he was questioned about his presence in the campus even as he did not possess any identity card.
The university’s vigilance staff said that it had no means to ascertain that the youth was in possession of ganja and handed him to Sayajigunj police. A police official of Sayajigunj police station said that the youth, a resident of Waghodiya Road, was smoking a cigarette and hence he was allowed to go after taking a fine of Rs 200 for smoking in public place.
It is worth mentioning here that MSU officials are already in the dock as they have not taken any steps to prevent drug menace in campus despite recently receiving a strongly worded missive from Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) – the national nodal agency in the field of drug law administration and enforcement which had questioned university’s silence on drug abuse.
NCB’s Ahmedabad zonal unit in a two page letter to MSU had stated that till now not a single case of drug abuse or illicit trafficking was handed over to it by the university authorities – showing sheer silence or connivance with the wrong doer, from the institute side.
