J&K police start mobile campaign against drug abuse & illicit trafficking


As part of the International Day against drug abuse and illicit trafficking, the  J&K police today started a mobile campaign to spread awareness against drug abuse and illicit trafficking among the school kids, parents and civil society here.

“To spread awareness about drug abuse and illicit trafficking, an anti-drug campaign vehicle would move around the entire Jammu city throughout the day,” SSP Crime, Mubassir Latifi, said.

The vehicle would make announcement so as to make general public aware about the menace of drug abuse and also motivate people to keep their children away from it, he said

“School children become easy target of drug abuse so the Crime Branch would educate their parents to keep their wards away from this menace,” the SSP said, appealing parents to keep a strict watch on their children.

Focussing on the importance of keeping an eye over unscrupulous elements who sell drugs to school students, Latifi advised the general public to share information about such people at the nearest police stations and with the Crime Branch.
