Speaking on the awareness, OC/Moirang Police Station RK Anilkumar said that there has been so many drug abusers in the state since years.

He said, apart from creating troubles and problems in their families, there has been so many cases of theft, snatching of gold earrings’ from the children and even murder in their localities by these drug abusers only to meet their needs.

The OC further said that once a time, some of the students from Manipur who went for further studies at outside states had come back as drug addicts without even pursuing their studies and while they were trying to bring back into normal life, many of the young generations of Manipur had already begun consuming drugs and illicit items.

The OC pleaded to the help extended to Manipur Police   by Anti-Drug Cell, local clubs, organisation etc. in the movement to ban the sales and use of drugs and alcohols in the State and said that Manipur Police has been taking up various initiatives to bring back the drug abusers into their normal life.

Many have been admitted at Rehabilitation centers and the responsibility taken up by Anti-Drug Cell Tronglaobi is one of the best steps, the OC added.

In continuation of the awareness, many speakers spoke on how to give up the use of drugs, how to recognise drug sellers, smugglers and peddlers, and how a person begins the use of drugs, etc.
