Ascertain sources of properties of convicts under NDPS: DM Jammu


Tawi, Dec 11: District Magistrate Sachin Kumar Vaishya chaired the district-level committee meeting under Narco Coordination Centre (NCORD) today, issuing stern directives to Sub-Divisional Magistrates in an effort to intensify the battle against drug trafficking in the region.

SSP Dr Vinod Kumar and Additional Deputy Commissioner (LO), Ansuya Jamwal besides SDMs and other concerned officers were present in the meeting.

Highlighting the urgency of the situation, the DM urged SDMs to invoke the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. He instructed them to issue notices to accused individuals under the Act, specifically to probe into the sources of their moveable and immovable properties.

The DM deliberated strategic measures for deterring individuals involved in drug trafficking.

In addition, the DM stressed the need to identify drugs hotspots within the district. SDMs were instructed to conduct thorough assessments, pinpointing areas with concentrated drug-related activities.

Emphasising a proactive stance, the DM urged SDMs to conduct regular meetings within their jurisdictions. “Consistent vigilance is crucial in our battle against narcotics. Regular meetings will ensure a sustained and coordinated effort,” he stated.
