25. The police public coordination is understood to have yielded encouraging results in
detection of crime in Aizawl and other places.
During the past few days the police had arrested a drug
addict and auto-thief at Tuikhuabtiang. Also four young drug addicts, drop
outs of school belonging to the age group of 14-16 were
detected and brought to police station by VDP President Mr Zachhunga of Ramthar for legal
action. From these young drug addicts, it was learnt that they have been using
certain drugs purchased from a medical store near Aizawl Power House. The young
boys are to be prosecuted under section 27 of NDPS Act if they refused
to be treated at the de-addiction center.
| The Police Department is of the view that control over drug addicts will
help bring down crime in Aizawl. Police urged medical stores not to
sell drugs without proper prescription by qualified doctors, and
the parents and teachers to ensure that their school going children did not play truancy.
