Beneath political turmoil, drug abuse in Kashmir growing by the day


On January 31, the Jammu and Kashmir police arrested two local peddlers in Kupwara with almost 19 kilograms of brown sugar worth Rs 80 million in the international market. “The narco-smuggling network in regions like Kupwara is so intricate that every month, we confiscate twice or thrice such consignments, and each consignment consists of a kilogram of narcotics, at least,” said Ambarkar Shriram Dinkar, SSP Kupwara.
