Israeli arrested for possessing drugs moves Goa HC

Panaji: Citing various anomalies in the
police case against him, Israeli national David Driham alias
Dudu, arrested for possessing drugs, today moved the Bombay
High Court bench here seeking bail.

In his bail application, the 34-year-old, who was
arrested on February 21, 2010 at Anjuna by the anti narcotic
cell for allegedly possessing contrabands, has said that he is
innocent.

Driham, who is currently lodged at Central Jail Aguada,
has claimed that the letter written by investigating officer
Sunil Gudlar to deputy superintendent of police (DySP)
informing about the raid was fabricated.

"The covering letter addressed to DySP has such a wealth
of factual material added therein that it could only have been
created subsequent to the accused being apprehended," the
petition filed before the High Court reads.

The very basis of the raid has been fabricated, it adds.

The lawyer representing Driham has said that factually,
there are inherent anomalies in the documentary evidence which
go to the root of the matter and which create reasonable
grounds for believing that the accused was not guilty of the
offence for which he stands arrested.

Police have registered offence under narcotics drugs and
psychotropic substances against Driham for possessing 144
ecstasy tablets, heroin powder, cocaine, liquid LSD and
charas.
