MUMBAI: Several parents and security agencies across the country heave a sigh of relief after the Central government recently included drug mephedrone or meow as psychotropic substance under the Narcotics, Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985, deeming it illegal.

Now, sources said those caught with meow will be booked under the NDPS act which is non bailable, mephedrone is being declared as a psychotropic substance, thereby bringing the said drug under the schedule 1 category, wherein production, transportation, storage and consumption of the same would be treated as an offence and cognisance is taken under the NDPS Act.

The central government which cleared the proposal on February 12, is likely to issue notification in this regards in this week. We have heard that the meow drug has come under the ambit of NDPS but we are yet to get the notification. We are happy that now we will be able to book those peddlers caught under this act which will to some extend deter the racket.''said Dhananjay Kulkarni, official spokesperson of Mumbai police.

Mumbai, particularly, the south Mumbai and Muslim pockets like Dongri, Mohammed Ali road, Chor bazaar, Mahim and Kurla have maximum victims as the drug has a big market among youth and people looking for an alternative to anxiety drugs.
