Society must support police

Sir,

A string of narcotics hauls by the Meghalaya Police and its Assam counterpart and the efforts of these various wings in the department to track and seize before such things get into the hands of unwanted miscreants and anti-socials deserves public appreciation. The back-to-back seizures is alarming and shows that society and the government agencies need to join hands in containing the spread of such illegal and nefarious substances that could corrupt young people.

Drug and narcotics addiction is a dangerous trend and surveys have shown that law enforcement needs to tackle it right from the root cause and finding a cure to this requires the all-round support of the society. There have been cases where heinous crimes perpetrated by addicts have posed a challenge to law and order and social peace. It is said that the growth of anti-social elements is also due to the failing economic system which has not been able to provide an alternative solution and thus taking advantage and exploiting the situation to the limit. It is important that legislators take utmost care before the society becomes dangerous.
