New Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday made a surprise visit at a government school in South Delhi's Bhati Mines area after he received a complaint that drugs were allegedly being supplied inside it.

Sisodia paid a visit after he received the complaint from local residents last night.

"During the Deputy CM's visit, locals nabbed a person whom they called a drug peddler who supplied drugs inside the school. Around 18 pouches of ganja were recovered from him," said a Delhi government spokesperson.

The accused was handed over to police, the spokesman said.

Later in the day, Sisodia shared a tweet of one of government's media advisors "Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia received a complaint that some students take drug. Vice principal also accepted this."

However, the government spokesman said that as per initial probe, school management was not at fault.
