Bawa was also charged with the two other Indians, who were bogth unemployed, with drug trafficking after they were arrested on the same day in a car on Tsung Kwai Highway in Tsing Yi.

Seized from the three were six packs of herbal cannabis weighing 3.3 kilos and one metal container which contained herbal cannabis weighing 33 grams.


In addition, Bawa was also charged for three offenses.

After he was arrested, police found in his possession an apparatus usually used in inhaling “ice” (or shabu), in violation of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance.

Bawa was also caught driving a car that was not registered and licensed, in violation of the Road Traffic Ordinance.


Since the same car was not insured, he was also charged with violating the Motor Vehicle insurance (Third Party Risks) Ordinance.

While Bawa was able to post bail of $60,000 in cash and $30,000 in surety and Alam was set free on a cash bail of $100,000, Mohammed and Poblacion were remanded in jail custody by Acting Principal Magistrate Amy Chan.
