Early Times Report

RAJOURI, May 26: In a resolute move to tackle the alarming issue of drug abuse and trafficking, District Magistrate Vikas Kundal chaired the 11th meeting of the District-Level Narco Coordination Centre (NCORD) Committee today.
The meeting witnessed the participation of key stakeholders and departmental representatives, who engaged in fruitful discussions to devise effective strategies and measures to combat the drug menace prevalent in the district.
Wakeel Ahmed Bhat, the District Social Welfare Officer, provided a comprehensive update on the progress made in implementing previous decisions. Notably, it was revealed that 535 medical stores have adhered to instructions by installing CCTV cameras to monitor the sale of banned drugs.
In a bid to enhance enforcement, the District Magistrate emphasized the need for CCTV installations at all medical stores and directed the authorities to ensure strict compliance.
Furthermore, the District Magistrate urged the Assistant District Magistrates (ADMs) to take immediate action in declaring four Panchayats per sub-division as drug-free zones. This proactive initiative aims to protect the grassroots level and shield the community from the devastating consequences of drug abuse.
Recognizing the importance of raising awareness, the District Magistrate instructed relevant departments to initiate widespread campaigns in schools, colleges, and public spaces.
These campaigns seek to engage members of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), students, and locals in spreading awareness about the perils of drug abuse.
The education department was specifically urged to prioritize anti-drug abuse awareness programs in all educational institutions.
Moreover, seamless coordination among the health, police, and social welfare departments was emphasized to effectively monitor and address drug-related offenses. The District Magistrate emphasized the significance of sharing crucial information about drug addicts to ensure their timely rehabilitation and support.
Highlighting the role of citizen participation, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Amrit Pal Singh urged individuals to promptly report instances of drug trafficking or related activities.
By collaborating with law enforcement agencies, everyone can contribute to the collective efforts against drug proliferation.
The meeting reiterated the unwavering commitment of the District Magistrate, SSP, and other officials to combat the drug menace and safeguard the well-being of the community.
The joint efforts of government departments, law enforcement agencies, educational institutions, and local communities are crucial in creating a drug-free society.
The meeting was attended by Additional Deputy Commissioners Rajouri, Kalakote, and Sunderbani, along with other esteemed members of the committee.
