Sessions court refuses bail to IPS officer Saji Mohan

is in custody in connection with a drug-dealing case.

with the evidence as he was a high-ranking police officer.

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
