Unlawful Drink Spiking

Section 316A makes it an offence to administer, or attempt to administer, in drink a substance to another person with intent to cause the other person to be stupefied or overpowered.

The quantity and nature of the substance administered is irrelevant in this offence. Furthermore, it is immaterial whether the person intended to take the drink actually takes the drink or another person does.

The maximum penalty is 5 years imprisonment.
