Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 13: In a Public Interest Litigation filed by Atharv Mahajan a student of law seeking initiation of a special drive by J&K police in the entire state for checking the growing menace of drugs amongst youths and regarding Low conviction in NDPS Case, a Division Bench of State High Court Comprising First Puisne Judge Justice Alok Aradhe and Justice Sanjay Kumar Gupta after hearing Sr. Adv Sunil Sethi, Adv Deepika Mahajan for the PIL, directed that Pharmaceutical Drugs shall not be misused and sold without proper prescription.
During the course of hearing, Division Bench observed that senior counsel for the petitioner submitted that the respondents are not taking any effective steps to prevent the menace of Pharmaceutical Drugs and the Drug Controllers are under obligation to ensure that the Pharmaceutical Drugs, which are capable of being used as narcotic drugs, are not supplied to the Medical Stores and in this regard some mechanisms are to be devised. It is further submitted that the Narcotics Control Bureau should also suggest some measures to the Drug Controller to prevent misuse of the Drugs as Narcotics and Psychotropic substances.
DB after hearing both the sides directed Drug Controller who shall place on record an action plan to ensure the monitoring of the sale and supply of the Pharmaceutical Drugs to various medicine outlets in the State. DB also directed NCB Jammu to suggest some measures to the Drug Controller to prevent misuse of the Drugs as Narcotics and Psychotropic substances. The status report in this regard shall be filed by the Narcotics Control Bureau, Jammu, by the next date of hearing.
DB after perusal of the status report filed on behalf of the respondents, found that status report is vague in so far it pertains to the treatment offered to the drug addicts. Upon this DB directed official respondents to furnish particulars of the persons to whom the treatments are given under Sanjeevani Programme.
DB also directed Additional Advocate General to file status report with regard to the action taken by the Drug Inspector for seizure of the Pharmaceutical Drugs which are to be used as Narcotics and Psychotropic substances in respect of Jammu, Samba and Kathua, by the next date of hearing.
