The SSP along with other police officials addressed the grievances of people and settled most complaints on the spot.

She said the village Panchayats have come forward to help police eradicate the menace and to work as a watchdog. She said so far, forty Panchayats in the district had passed resolutions.

She urged the people to provide any information regarding those indulging in drug supply and about police personnel that are hand in glove with the peddlers to the Police Department.
