In a startling development, a highly confidential report has been received by the Sindh Inspector-General of Police, Ghulam Nabi Memon.
The report exposes the widespread distribution of drugs in schools and restaurants across the metropolitan city of Karachi.
The report reveals a distressing reality, as artificial medicines and drugs have infiltrated the lives of teenage boys, girls, and students, presenting a grave social issue that puts the youth of the bustling city at risk.
The findings of this report have sent shockwaves through the community, raising urgent concerns about the safety and well-being of our future generation.
The spread of drugs within educational institutions and popular eateries has cast a dark shadow over the city, calling for immediate attention. Details of the report have not been revealed to the public and speculations on which schools and eateries are on the list are underway.
Action Taken by Police to Combat Drug Supply in Karachi
The crackdown on the mafia involved in drug distribution has begun after the Police General Sindh, instructed the Special Branch Sindh to monitor the schools and restaurants highlighted in the report and further ordered the AIG Police Special Branch, AIG Karachi, DIG Special Branch, DIG Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas and Sukkur Range, Larkana and DIG East, West and South Zones Karachi to increase their surveillance and act swiftly on the matter.
The letter with surveillance orders states:
“It has been learned through a reliable source that both organic and synthetic drugs/ narcotics are being supplied to teenagers/children/students at schools/restaurants/cafes and to other customers with impunity. Thus, spoiling our future generation and image of Sindh police.”
Combating Drug Distribution in Schools
As authorities delve deeper into this troubling matter, it is crucial to confront the underlying social issues that contribute to this pervasive problem.
The presence of drugs in schools not only jeopardizes the academic progress and prospects of our young minds but also undermines the very foundations of a healthy and prosperous society.
A concerned educator from a school in Karachi shares the experience of finding drugs in her institution.
“Drugs found in our establishment were not in the form of actual drugs that we perceive – instead we uncovered a number of boys consuming a sort of candy that was provided to them for a week outside their local community centres/parks. The suppliers lured the boys giving them the drugs for free and later on began charging for it once they were addicted to the substance.”
The battle against drugs is ongoing as law enforcement takes charge of the matter, however, strict protocols need to be put into place by schools where spot-checking must be conducted randomly. Schools can also create a supportive and inclusive environment for students who would wish to come forward for help.
Having an alternate healthy outlet is essential for students, sporting activities and other co-curricular activities develop a sense of belonging and would reduce their susceptibility to drug use.
Families affected by this ongoing menace need to be given awareness in terms of counselling and rehab facilities where they can help the affected.
