Illegal Drug Trade goes on under the tutelage of Tilak Marg SHO Brijesh Mishra
Delhi Crown Bureau
New Delhi: A well-organised drug cartel is going on under the tutelage SHO of Tilak Marg Police Station Brijesh Kumar Mishra around the Supreme Court of India, much to the embarrassment of the country’s apex court.
Drugs like Ganja, Charas and Smack are discretely sold in ITO area and druggists at Bhagwan Das Road, Tilak Marg Road, and Mathura Road enjoy them round-the-clock under police protection provided by none other than SHO Brijesh Kumar Mishra.
According to sources, this illegal drug trade has been going on since Inspector Brijesh Kumar Mishra took over as the SHO of Tilak Marg Police Station a couple of years ago.
Several calls, text messages and WhatsApp messages to SHO Brijesh Kumar Mishra to elicit his response regarding this illegal drugs trade went unanswered. “SHO Brijesh Kumar Mishra enjoys free lunches and snacks from the people actively engaged in this illegal trade,” said a source on the condition of anonymity.
The source said that SHO Brijesh Kumar Mishra is well-aware of the illegal drugs trade going on under his Police Station’s jurisdiction, but gives it a “blind eye” because he gets a “hefty sums of money” in return.
A beat constable, who covers the areas near and around ITO and the Supreme Court of India, said, “Yes we know that illegal drugs trade emanates from ITO area, but we haven’t yet received any direction(s) from our SHO Sir to take any action against those involved in this illegal trade.”
One shop keeper at the intersection point of the Bhagwan Das Road and the Mathura Road told www.thedelhicrown.com, “Throughout the day we see drugs exchanging hands between the sellers and the consumers living in the immediate vicinity. But we can only be mute spectators, nothing else. The advocates visiting this area also sometime see this trade happening in this area.”
Another source said that SHO Brijesh Kumar Mishra pockets a huge amounts of money every month for “allowing” this illegal trade in his area. “But, since we have the country’s apex court – the Supreme Court of India in this area, this illegal trade must stop immediately,” he added.
