Mumbai: A 45-year-old man allegedly suspected to be involved in a drugs case allegedly tried to harm himself in the custody of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in Mumbai by consuming toilet cleaner on Tuesday. The suspect was rushed to the JJ Hospital where he is undergoing treatment. His condition is reported to be out of danger, officials informed.
According to the NCB, the suspect identified as Ejaz Supariwala alias Psycho was allegedly involved in two drug-related cases registered by the NCB. In one of the cases, he was granted bail by the court. The NCB wanted to examine Ejaz in the other case in which he was allegedly involved. Ejaz was then caught by the NCB officials and was brought to the NCB office in South Mumbai on Tuesday.
"He was upset that he was caught in the other drugs case. He requested to visit the toilet and after he entered the washroom, he spotted a toilet cleaner inside and consumed it. When the officials learnt about this they immediately rushed him to the hospital. Once he will get discharged from the hospital, we would take the required action," said an NCB official.
He added, "From his action, it appears that his intention was not to commit suicide but to evade arrest."
