New Delhi: A non-bailable warrant has been issued by a Delhi court against Sahil Zaroo, facing trial in a drug abuse-cum-peddling case involving late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan's son Rahul.

Additional sessions judge S C Rajan issued the warrant against Zaroo for his failure to appear before the court to attend its proceedings.

Zaroo's counsel told the court that he had gone to Jammu and Kashmir but had not contacted him after that.

"Kamlesh Anand, advocate, states that accused Sahil Zaroo had gone to Jammu and Kashmir but he has not come back nor made any contact with him. In view of this, NBW be issued against accused Sahil Zaroo and notice under section 446 CrPC be issued to his surety for the date fixed," the court said.

The court has also issued notice to the police "to depute any police officer not below the rank of sub inspector to execute the NBW upon the accused and the notice upon his surety personally".

Zaroo is facing trial along with Rahul Mahajan and others after the sessions court had earlier framed charges against them in the case.

Zaroo, Mahajan and his accomplices Harish Sharma, Nigerian nationals Abdul Latif Ashola alias Mohd Abdullah, Egbedokun James Taiwo and others are facing trial under the IPC and the NDPS Act for their roles in the case.

The court, however, had to defer the hearing to December 17 as it was yet to receive the main case file, which was sent to the Delhi High Court earlier.
