An Indian tourist has confessed to consuming hashish at a hotel in the Al Murraqabat area of Dubai, it has been reported.

The 32-year-old was arrested at his hotel on September 15 after Dubai Police’s Anti-narcotics department was tipped off, according to The National.

Although no drugs were found on him when he was arrested, a urine test later came back positive for traces of hashish.

Appearing in court, he confessed to the charge of consuming hashish, saying “people in his country consumed the drug”.

"It’s OK in India, everyone takes hashish," he added, according to The National.

Another hearing in the case will be held on December 30.
