MP Police Charge Amazon India Executed In Alleged Marijuana
Amazon had earlier said in a statement that it does not allow the sale of illegal products through its platform and is cooperating with the investigation into the matter.
Bhind Superintendent of Police Manoj Kumar Singh said that a case has been registered against the executive directors of Amazon India working as ASSL in the country under section 38 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.
He said that no particular person has been named in the FIR.
Section 38 deals with the role of companies and their management in drug-related offences.
The SP said that a case under the NDPS Act has been registered at Gohad police station in the district on November 13 after 21.7 kg of ganja was recovered from Gwalior residents Bijendra Tomar and Suraj alias Kallu Pawaiya.
He said that another resident of Gwalior, Mukul Jaiswal and buyer Chitra Balmiki, a resident of Mehgaon, Bhind, were arrested during interrogation.
Investigation revealed that Pawaiya and Jaiswal had formed a company named ‘Babu Tex’ and registered it as a seller on Amazon, Singh said.
He said they supply hemp from Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh under the guise of selling stevia through the company, which is a plant-based sweetener.
Earlier this week, an Amazon spokesperson said that the company’s platform enables third-party sellers to display, list and offer sale products directly to customers.
He had said that the company does not permit the listing and sale of products prohibited under the law in India.
“The issue was reported to us and we are currently investigating whether there is any non-compliance on the part of the seller. We assure the investigating authorities of the full cooperation and support required,” the spokesperson said.
