HYC delegation meets DGP on drug issue

Shillong, May 27: HYC leaders met DGP Idashisha Nongrang at her official chamber on Monday to discuss the need to tackle drug abuse.

The HYC members wanted a more stringent strategy to reduce the supply of drugs into the state. The HYC suggested that the
police, the Border Security Force and the Customs & Central Excise should conduct joint operations and share information on drugs by pooling in resources to effectively tackle the menace of drugs in the state as frequently as possible and also rope in the village authorities in this effort. Regular checking should be conducted more frequently at the entry points to the state, the HYC president Roy Kupar Synrem said while taking to reporters..


The HYC also emphasised  the need to create awareness on the provision of receiving stolen property, the HYC president said, “Section 317 of The Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023 (Repealing the Indian Penal Code, 1860), which shall come into force on 1st July, 2024 provides for the provisions relating ‘receiving or retaining’ any stolen property. During our interactions with the ‘drug users’ as well as their family members, we have come across many cases where the users in order to get money for buying drugs are forced to commit theft even from their homes or family members. These stolen properties are then sold at take away prices to some persons and hence in order to create awareness about this particular provision of law and to create a deterrent effect so as selling and buying of stolen properties, especially by drugs users, are not easy, we asked the DGP to take necessary steps to inform the public about this provision and the consequences of violating the same,” he added.
