STATE TIMES NEWS KATHUA: SSP Kathua Shridhar Patil on Thursday sought support of every section of society for eradicating menace of drugs. In a statement issued here, the SSP Kathua, Shridhar Patil said that drug abuse affects capabilities and energies of youth and it is the responsibility of all stakeholders to work together for eradicating the growing menace, which has risen to an alarming position in modern society.

Drug abuse makes youth dependant and incapable to face challenges of life, ultimately costing their lives”.

Besides performing professional duties, the JKP has been working tirelessly for spreading drug de-addiction in various areas and in this regard, a centre has already been made operational at Police Control Room Srinagar, he informed. “A number of youth has been treated in the centre by doctors, enabling them to give-up dreadful consumption of drugs and joining normal lives,” asserted Patil, stressing for more joint efforts by all stakeholders to overcome the menace and save youngsters from drugs, which also leads to other evils and crimes. Patil said that drug de-addiction is one of the major scheme under Civic Action Programme for welfare of State youth and all our efforts have been bringing good results. In this regard, the SSP exhorted upon all SHOs to take stern action against all those involved in drug peddling. “A massive crackdown has been launched against drug peddlers and further pressure will be built on people involved in the illicit trade,” Patil said. Patil reiterated his call to various sections of society, including lawyers, judiciary, doctors and students, to cooperate with State police to eradicate the menace. Later, the SSP also managed a movie show for Police personals, as on every festive season, Police personals remain busy in performing their duties and did not get time for entertainment, which they also deserve.
