Mumbai: The sessions court here on Saturday rejected the bail application of IPS officer Saji Mohan, who is in custody in connection with a drug-dealing case.

Mohan had sought bail saying that the chargesheet had already been filed in the case and he would not abscond.

However, the prosecution contended that he might tamper with the evidence as he was a high-ranking police officer.

His lawyer, Balkrishnan said he would file an appeal in the High Court.

Mohan, a former zonal director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Chandigarh, was arrested on January 25, 2009 for allegedly being in possession of 12 kg of heroin.

Police's case is that Mohan stole the drugs from contraband seized by his department and he was supplying them to drug dealers in Mumbai through another accused Vicky Oberoi.
