Punjab Police have been carrying out Cordon and Search Operations (CASOs) at drug hotspots in the state from time to time and people from all sections of society are very happy with the action of the force and cooperating with the Police teams.

Harpinder Singh, Sarpanch of village Kharaurhi (Fatehgarh Sahib), which has been declared as a Drug-Free Village by Panchayat, thanked Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and the Punjab Police for launching a war against drugs. He on the behalf of the panchayat extended fulsome support in this war to make Punjab a drug-free state.

Police teams led by Senior Superintendents of Police (SSPs) on Monday conducted CASOs and special Naka Bandis in five districts including Fatehgarh Sahib, Tarn Taran, Pathankot, Hoshiarpur and Amritsar Rural. Police teams, on the directions of Director General of Police (DGP) Punjab Gaurav Yadav, also visited the rehabilitation centres to motivate the people undergoing the treatment of drug addiction to return to the mainstream to start a new life.

The DGP said that the Police teams have received an overwhelming response and great support from the public during this special operation carried out in five districts. He also exhorted the public to share inputs with the Police in case they get to know about anyone selling/consuming drugs.
