HYDERABAD: ‘Chocolate boy’ Rishi Sanjay Mehta is now in the Erragadda Institute of Mental Health as per the directions of the court as he has recently been showing symptoms indicating that he is mentally unsound. Rishi was arrested and sent to judicial custody after the police found him making hash oil chocolates and discreetly selling them to his customers online.

In order to extract more information from him about how he obtained the ingredients for the hashish oil pastry and knew about his customers, the Musheerabad police sought his custody, but the city court rejected their plea and ordered that Rishi be admitted to the Institute of mental health in Erragadda for two months.

Hyderabad Narcotics Enforcement Wing (H-NEW) nabbed Rishi, who is a student of business management at Phoenix University in the US, for his involvement in making hashish oil chocolates. The Bowenpally and Musheerabad police charged him under the NDPS Act and then sought a five-day judicial remand and filed a petition to that effect in the court.

Meanwhile, Rishi, who was in judicial custody, started behaving strangely in the jail and it seemed that he was not mentally sound. The police also came to the conclusion that in his current state, even if the police were to take him into custody, he would not be able to cooperate with them and provide them with any information that would help them understand the extent of the extortion. The city court then referred him to the IMH in Erragadda for treatment.
