Rats in India  destroyed the seized  200kg of cannabis from dealers which was kept in police stations, as per BBC.

"Rats are tiny animals and they have no fear of the police. It's difficult to protect the drug from them," a court in Uttar Pradesh state has said.

The court called on the police to provide the stash as evidence in cases of drug peddling. Then the judge produce three cases in which marijuana was destroyed by rats.

Judge Sanjay Chaudhary said in an order that when the court asked the police to produce the seized drug as evidence, it was told that 195kg of cannabis had been "destroyed" by rats.

In another case involving 386kg of the drug, the police filed a report saying "some" of the cannabis was "eaten up by the rats".

Judge Chaudhary added around 700kg of cannabis seized by the police was stored in police stations in Mathura district and that "all of it was under danger of infestation by rats".

He said the police had no expertise in dealing with the matter as the rats were "too small". The only way to protect the seized goods from "such fearless mice", he added, was to auction the drugs to research labs and medicine firms, with the proceeds going to the government.
