    The above picture you are publishing is not the one who is suspended in connection with drug case. This may lead to misunderstanding to public so please review your post. Thanks

    If the search team reached the spot that is the said house in this case at 10:00 PM, how is it possible that the team seized the said drug/contraband at 9:00 PM on the said date.
