Srinagar, May 20: A one-day programme on “ Victims of Drug Abuse and Eradication of Drug Menace” was organised by District Legal Services Authority Kishtwar at Girls High School Sangram Bhata Kishtwar.

On this occasion, Mahmud Anwar Alnasir was the chief guest of the function. In his address, the Chief Judicial Magistrate Kishtwar, Alnasir impressed upon young students to work hard and remember the purpose for which their parents are working hard to send them to school. “They should feel fortunate enough that they have the facilities of education. Though education is free till the age of 14, yet there are millions of kids who are still devoid of this basic fundamental right.”

He stressed that “weak souls succumb to such menace as drugs or addiction to any substance abuse”. He told the young kids to be vigilant and not to become couriers in their innocence or carry things for strangers or deliver them. “If any such person comes into their contact they should report it.”

Others who were present on the occasion as resource persons included DLADC Adv. Naveed, Adv. Suman Bhandari, Adv. Pooja and LCPO Juvenile Justice Board Basharat. The programme concluded with interactive sessions with young students.
