A GOOD INITIATIVE TAKEN BY SP CHAMPHAI IN COMBATING DRUGS MENACE IN MIZORAM

  
 

World over three regions are known for narcotics production i.e. 1. Mexico and Columbia. 2. Golden Crescent and Golden Triangle.

Mizoram shares border with golden triangle and Champhai is the bordering district. Hence it shares the high risk of all the ill effects of drug supply trade including susceptibility of local population being its victim of usage owing to comparatively lower prices and easy availability.

Drugs usage by local populace represents a complex problem as after being victim of drug they invariably finance their drug consumption by becoming a part of drug trade. As per directive of worthy DGP, IGP and AIGP, Champhai police has launched a mega drive against drug menace. Its structure and significant features are:-

  1. Curtaining supply- through development of active intelligence assets and surveillance. A trained sniffer dog supply possibility is being explored, if at least training to one of our men is made available through BSF or Delhi Police both of the organizations maintain training infrastructure. Through our preliminary discussion we have received very positive response for them.
  2. Curbing Demand- by targeting, vulnerable section and vulnerable age groups.

To achieve both these set of objectives “Ruihhlodotu Champhai” mission has been started in Champhai, in association with Young Mizo Association, Mizo Zirlai Pawl and other NGOs.

Its beginning was done by a detailed of the entire crime incidents in the last two years in Champhai, it showed that places with highest incidents of burglary and thefts are also the places where highest number of cases of NDPS have been registered. Thereby showing a complex web of crime interlinked with drugs. After this a detailed field survey was carried out following facts came out.

  1. School drop outs have maximum chances of starting drugs.
  2. In most of the cases drugs were introduced by friends.
  3. In most of the cases drug abuse started with late part of teenage.

After knowing these crucial facts and having a detailed discussion with eminent persons, social activists and NGOs an intensive mission was planned, under “Ruihhlodotu Champhai” which entailed displaying through audio visual aids and lectures, in every school of the district, the harmful effects of usage of narcotic drugs, accompanied by a lecture of a reformed drug addict. All the Schools of the district will be covered in this drive.

The first stage began by launch of the program on 28/9/2016 at Government College, Champhai where students of two H. Sec Schools participated along with college students, (in total all numbered more than 400.
