The Delhi High Court upheld stringent penal provision for illegal use and abuse of Ketamine, notorious for its use as a date-rape drug. A division bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath upheld a 10 February, 2011 notification of the central government which included Ketamine as Psychotropic Substances (any drug capable of affecting the mind, emotions, and behaviour) under the NDPS Act. The bench took into note the submissions of the central government that Ketamine, which is a popular anaesthetic in veterinary medicine, is subject to abuse and the same is gradually rising in India.
