TS High Court dismisses anticipatory bail plea of Goas bulk drug supplier

Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court vacation bench headed by Justice Chillakur Sumalatha on Thursday heard the anticipatory bail petition of Edwin Nunes, a bulk drug supplier from Goa, seeking to release him on bail in connection with a case filed by the Osmania University police station, Hyderabad.

Senior counsel Pradyumna Kumar Reddy appeared for the petitioner, Edwin Nunes, and argued before the court that the petitioner is innocent and not connected with the case which has been filed against him by the Osmania University police, Hyderabad, and to grant him anticipatory bail for the sake of justice. Assistant public prosecutor Khaja Vizarath Ali objected to Edwin Nunes' bail plea, who is an accused (A-7) in the drugs case filed at the Osmania University police station.

APP Vizarath Ali further informed the court that Edwin Nunes is an accused in the Sonali Phogat murder case, and he has been arrested by the Goa police in this case. Moreover, in the drugs case, the Hyderabad police went to Goa to nab an accused, Priteesh Narayan Borkar, who was supplying drugs to consumers. They arrested Borkar and found that Borkar's boss was Edwin Nunes. They tried to arrest Nunes but their efforts were in vain, said the APP.

Further, he informed the court that Hyderabad Narcotic Enforcement Wing (H-NEW) found that Edwin was among the six people who allegedly supplied drugs in bulk to Borkar, who in turn supplied them to clients across the country. Many of them are from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh also, Vizarath Ali alleged.

The assistant public prosecutor informed the court not to grant bail to Edward Nunes or else it may cause inadvertent issues in the investigation of the police. Hearing all the contentions from both sides, Justice Chillakur Sumalatha dismissed the bail plea of Edward Nunes.
