Can I be punished under this law if all I have done is let my friend use my shop to temporarily store drugs?
Yes, knowingly letting someone use your house or vehicle for storing or handling illegal drugs is punishable under this law. It is understood as committing of the offence itself. You will be punishable with the punishment provided for that offence. Letting someone use your animal or conveyance knowing the purpose for which the animal or conveyance is going to be used is also an offence. 1
- Section 25, Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985.
