Srinagar: Police on Saturday said that by acting tough against drug peddlers and eradicating the menace of drugs from society, Budgam Police booked five notorious drug peddlers under PSA after obtaining formal detention orders from the competent authority.

The statement further stated that the booked drug peddlers have been detained and subsequently lodged in Kot-Balwal Jail Jammu.
Pertinent to mention that the above drug peddlers were involved in 12 NDPS cases registered in various Police stations of the district and were promoting the drug abuse trade by supplying drugs to local youth of District Budgam. Despite their involvement in many FIR’s these drug peddlers did not mend their activities and were again promoting the drug abuse trade by supplying drugs to local youth in various areas of district Budgam.
The general public of Budgam appreciated the role of the Police in their action against drug peddlers. Budgam Police’s consistent actions against the drug peddlers should reassure the community members that Budgam police is making all efforts to keep our society free from drug abuse, reads the statement.
