“We are trying our best to make the people aware by holding seminars and bring the drug addicted into main stream so that they can lead normal life. We had registered 405 cases under NDPS(Narcotics drugs and psychotropic substances act 1985) and 573 accused were arrested in last year. We have also recovered Rs 40 lac drug money as well. We are giving a strict message to the drug peddlers or criminals engaged in the drug supply that nobody would be spared. We have also started attaching the properties of the drug peddlers under section 58 F of IPC so that we could build up pressure on the drug peddlers that if they make properties by selling drugs, it would also go. We have forwarded 18 cases of having the property of drug peddlers attached to Delhi. SSP Sahib Rajbachan Singh Sandhu is taking a personal interest to check this menace,” said Kulwant Rai, SP(PBI) Muktsar.

MUKTSAR: Muktsar police on Thursday organized an awareness camp in village Kotli Ablu with the participation of village residents and members of Vigilante committee against drugs to cause awareness among the locals about the drug abuse and help to check the delivery and abuse of drugs.

Kulwant Rai, Superintendent of Police (SP, PBI) addressed the gathering and sought the help of the people to check the menace of drugs.

“The drugs are destroying our society and ruining some families. The drug addicted also commit many crimes as thefts, loots and fights and even more serious. Our youth is getting trapped in drugs and we need to save our society, particularly youth from drugs. For this purpose, the police need the help of the locals so that drug peddlers could be arrested and addicted could be motivated for de-addiction,” Kulwant Rai said.

“The parents must keep a close eye on their children so that they do not fall into the bad company,” he said.

He also emphasized the people on the need to form village level drug vigilant committees and keep a close vigil in the villages round the clock so that police could be informed and action could be taken against the drug peddlers.

He said that police have also increased the patrolling in the district and special check points are being laid to nab the criminals.

“Due to cold weather, earlier there was some problem about guarding the village at night, but now I exhort the people to guard their villages at night too,” he said congratulating the anti drug vigilante team of the village.

“There were around 300 odd residents of village and Kotli Ablu is a drug free village as locals are making all out efforts to eradicate the evil of drug addiction,” said Kulwant Rai, SP(PIB)

Inspector Angrej Singh, station house officer of police station Kot Bhai also addressed the gathering and assured them all kinds of help to make the villages drug free.
