Three arrested for supplied NRI student drugs: Police

New Delhi, Sep 20 (IANS) Three people, who provided drugs to NRI student Anmol Sarna, now dead, and his four friends for a party, have been arrested, police said Friday.

According to police, Dushywant, Nehul and Bhuvan - all in their 20s - were arrested Thursday late night from Noida in Uttar Pradesh.

Nehul and Bhuvan are the students of a prominent college of Noida, while Dushyant is a drug dealer, police said.

"Dushyant used to provide drugs to college students through people sitting overseas. He contacted the sources through internet and sought the required contraband. Their agents delivered the consignment to him," said a police officer.

Police is now trying to locate the main source of the drugs.

Sarna, 21, died in a hospital where he was taken after being found unconscious in a pool of blood outside a residential complex in south Delhi where he was partying at his friend's flat Sep 13.

He was allegedly beaten up by two security guards when he created ruckus after taking a drug overdose at the party. His autopsy said he died due to shock and haemorrhage caused by head injuries. There were major injuries on his private parts also.

The two guards are now in custody, along with the four friends, who were arrested under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. A court Friday rejected the four's bail pleas.

Sarna's family, who have reached Delhi from their home in the US, have demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation inquiry into his alleged murder.
