"I have always emphasized this that we have lost one generation to violence and we cannot afford to lose another generation to drugs," the IGP, who was chief guest to release souvenir HAYAAT, said.

The souvenir contains several chapters based on the work done by PDDSC J&K Police and DLL KU in rehabilitating the drug-abusers to start a new life.

"Although the magnitude of this problem here is not as big as it is in some other states like Punjab, but if not checked right now, it will assume bigger proportions. It will assume larger magnitude and it will affect our society, our youth and our generation together. It is in this context that JK police tried to understand its role and started contributing towards eradicating this menace," he said.

JK Police is the only force in the country to establish a Drug De-addiction Centre at the Police Control Room and to take a lead in the de-addiction process.

"We need to increase the level of awareness in the society and at the same time university can provide its academic and research based inputs once such cases are shared by the PDDSC J&K Police with us," said Syed Afad-ul- Mujtaba, DIG Central Kashmir Range.
