The Doraha police seem all set and prepared to fight drug mafia tooth and nail and make the surrounding villages completely drug-free. With this end, it is organising awareness campaigns and seminars, laying stressing on the eradication of the menace of drug addiction.

SHO, Doraha, Karnail Singh with his team is reaching out to almost all villages of Doraha, including Barmalipur, Jaipura and Kaddon, and meeting villagers and preparing them to provide without fear any secret information regarding the involvement of any person in drug purchase or sale.

“Measures are being taken to book those who are in one way or the other involved in this nefarious drug trade. But until and unless the roots of this problem are touched, it will keep affecting many young lives,” the SHO expressed while speaking to villagers of Kaddon.

Seeking help from youngsters of Barmalipur village, the SHO said, “Youngsters can assist the police once they make up their minds to resist any such temptation and say no to drugs forever.” He also invited various social organisations to come to the aid of those youths “who are brain-washed by enemies of the nation and are unknowingly digging their own graves.”

“Those involved in sale and supply of drugs, however influential they may be, must be taken to task. As we are determined to fight this problem, we seek the help of each and every villager to collectively make a resolve that drug addiction has to be finally curbed and Punjab is made a drug-free state. Youths of the state should not destroy their own lives by getting hooked to these deadly habit-forming drugs. Rather they should be exhorted to handle the responsibilities of their families, their state and the nation at large,” the SHO added, while educating villagers of Jaipura.


'Addicts digging their own graves'

Youngsters can assist the police once they make up their minds to resist any such temptation and say no to drugs forever. We also invite various social organisations to come to the aid of those youths who have been brainwashed by enemies of the nation and are unknowingly digging their own graves.
