Courts showing the way
12/8/2022 12:59:22 AM

Courts in Jammu and Kashmir are acting tough against the drug peddlers and the ones who are caught with narcotics. Accused who are booked under NDPS Act don’t get the bail easily from the courts.
Recently while rejecting a bail plea of two accused booked under NDPS Act, a court in Doda observed that even small towns are now becoming hub for substance/contraband abuse and its worrying indeed.
Easy availability of drugs including supply thereof at doorsteps is a menace that is rapidly gripping the youth.
It is in this context that the offences involved in the case in hand are grave and serious in nature and grant of bail to the accused sends a very wrong signal to society at large.
The courts are leading the way and are setting an example. The Judges are giving very clear and explicit judgments and are not allowing the drug peddlers to get away.
People who sell this poison to the youngsters are real culprits who need to be dealt with sternly. Law enforcing agencies and the courts are ensuring that the culprits don’t get away and the ones who are found involved in selling drugs are being awarded exemplary punishments.
As a society people need to wake up. They have to understand that they can’t leave everything on the law enforcing agencies. They have to maintain a vigil in and around their vicinity and keep an eye on unscrupulous elements.
Parents have an important role to play. They have to ensure that their children don’t fall into bad company and remain away from such people who are out to destroy the youngsters.
During the past few years hectic efforts have been put in to make the people aware about the ill effects of drug abuse. It has helped in driving home a point that the drug addiction is turning into a monster and it cannot be allowed to eat up the society.
The courts by denying bail to the drug peddlers are making it clear that such criminals cannot ruin the society and they will be punished for targeting the innocent youngsters.
