Delhi Police have arrested three persons for allegedly planning to supply a party drug to their ‘clients’ at a concert of American artist Skrillex in Gurgaon on Sunday. The arrested men were also supplying the party drug Mephedrone, better known as Meow Meow, to students in Delhi University’s (DU) North Campus, said the police.
“It is Delhi’s first catch of mephedrone (Meow Meow),” said DCP (North) Madhur Verma.
The accused are Sanjeev Jaiswal (25), Umang Narang (21) and Victor (42), a Nigerian national, said the police, adding that 9 grams of Meow Meow were recovered from them.

“They could not deliver the drug to their clients at the concert as we arrested them before the event. We arrested Jaiswal and Narang on Saturday from a location near the parking area in Inderlok metro station while Victor, who supplied the drugs to Jaiswal and Narang, was arrested on Monday from West Delhi,” said Verma.
The phone records and diary entries of the three accused revealed a nexus between them and DU students, said the police.
“The names of seven people, suspected to be students of DU colleges, have come up during the investigation. These students used to buy Meow Meow from Jaiswal and Narang, at the rate of Rs 10,000 per half gram shots, to sell them off at higher prices in party circuits,” said a police officer.
Victor has been living in India since 2012, said the police. The Meow Meow recovered from the trio was procured from Kasol in Himachal Pradesh and usually routed through Mumbai, said the police. “Larger consignments of the drug were expected to arrive in Delhi,” said Verma, adding that the police were looking into the operations of the nexus in Himachal Pradesh.
