New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday granted bail to two persons arrested in NRI youth Anmol Sarna`s murder case for allegedly helping his friends in procuring drugs consumed during a party on the night of September 17.

Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Wason granted bail to Bhuwan Sharma and Nehul on furnishing of a personal bond of Rs 25,000 with one surety of the like amount.

Meanwhile, the court remanded Dushyant Lamba, who was also arrested along with Bhuwan and Nehul in connection with the supply of the drugs, to two days of judicial custody after the police did not seek his custody.

The three were arrested yesterday from Noida in Uttar Pradesh.

The two were freed on bail after the police failed to show recovery of huge quantity of drugs for their personal or commercial use from their possession.

Meanwhile, the judge today pulled up the Delhi police saying that instead of investigating the murder of the deceased, they are probing the drug supply in India.

It said it can be done as a parallel case but murder probe is necessary at this stage.

Nine persons have been arrested in connection with the incident of murder and consumption of narcotics.

24-year-old Anmol died on the night of September 17 after he attended a party at one of his friend`s house at South Park Apartments in Kalkaji here.

The police had said Anmol and his friends -- Shivank Gambhir, Madhav Bhandari, Pranil Shah and Ritham Girhotra had consumed drugs in Pranil`s bedroom.

Surender Bali (40) and Naresh Mishra (60), guards posted at the South Park Apartments, have been arrested under section 302 (murder) of Indian Penal Code for causing grievous head injuries to Anmol with batons after the NRI allegedly created a ruckus at duplex house of Pranil.

Shivank, Madhav, Ritham and Pranil, all in their 20s, have already been arrested under section 22/27/29 of the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act for consumption of the contraband drug.

Anmol`s friends and the security guards are in Tihar jail till September 30.

Yesterday, the court had also rejected the bail applications for Shivank, Madhav, Pranil and Ritham.
