[NDPS] Anticipatory Bail Cannot Be Granted Merely Because ‘Nothing Was Recovered’ From Accused: Kerala HC

The Kerala High Court has held that anticipatory bail cannot be granted in an NDPS case merely because ‘nothing was recovered’ from the accused. To allow an anticipatory bail petition filed by a person accused under under Sections 22(c), 28 and 29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, the Sessions Court noted that ‘nothing was recovered’ from him and no prima facie material are available to indicate his active participation in the crime. Therefore, it proceeded to grant the bail.
