Accused can be given copy of Seizure Mahazar since it is a public document: Kerala High Court

The petitioner was accused of possessing commercial quantities of ganja (155.480 kgs) and MDMA (70.71 grams) in violation of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act,1985 (NDPS Act).

A Sessions Court had earlier dismissed his application for a copy of the seizure mahazar on the ground that it was not necessary for him to file a bail application.

However, before the High Court, the petitioner’s lawyer asserted that the seizure mahazar was required to understand the case and press for bail. The lawyer also pointed out that in an NDPS case, the accused has to show that he is not prima facie guilty in order the secure bail.
