As per the prosecution story, the petitioner was found possession 2Kg “Opium”. Thereafter, investigation was carried out and charge sheet was filed against the petitioner. Thereafter, the charge under section 18 NDPS Act, 1985 was framed against the petitioner to which petitioner pleaded not guilty and claimed trial.
The Ld. Trial Court passed the judgment convicting the petitioner under section 18(c) of the NDPS act and sentenced him to under rigorous imprisonment for 5 years and a fine of Rs.50,000/-.
Aggrieved from the order passed by the Ld. Trial Court the petitioner preferred an Criminal Appeal before the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi against the conviction order. The Hon’ble High Court of Delhi dismissed the appeal filed by the petitioner and upheld the order passed by the Ld. Trial Court.
Thereafter, the convict filed the Special Leave Petition which was admitted but he was not granted Bail.

Ajay Garg Advocate and the Hon’ble Supreme Court vide order dated 16-03-2018 enlarged the appellant/convict on bail keeping in view the fact that the appeal of the appellant is pending and the appellant has already undergone sentence for a period of 4 years and 4 months out of the total period of the sentence of 5 years.
