Taking suo moto cognizance of media reports that a huge quantity of toffees having drugs was seized from a godown at Kandasamy layout in Villupuram in Chennai, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued notice to the Chennai's District Collector.

A huge quantity of such toffees was also found abandoned near a burial ground in Kovilpatti area. A few days back, a school boy had to be admitted to a hospital after consuming drug chocolates, which he purchased from a shop in RK Nagar area in Chennai.
