The police in India have accused rats of destroying nearly 200 kg of cannabis seized from traffickers and stored in police stations.
“Rats are tiny animals and they are not afraid of the police. It is difficult to protect the drug from them,” said a court in Uttar Pradesh in a statement.
Judge Sanjay Chaudhary said in the ruling that when the court asked the police to produce the seized drug as evidence, it was said, that 195 kg of cannabis were “destroyed” rats.
In another case involving 386 kg of the drug, the police filed a report stating that “some” The cannabis was “eaten by rats,” according to the Air Force.
According to the judge, the police were inexperienced in dealing with the matter because the rats were “too small.” The judge noted that the only way to protect the confiscated drugs is to auction them to research laboratories and medical firms, and send the proceeds to the government.
