We will see that they will be admitted to the drug de-addiction centre and well keep in touch with them for 6 months monitoring their progress since there are chances of relapse. Drug addiction is curable, they need help, we should not boycott them socially. They are like our brothers and we should help them overcome the addiction to lead a normal life.So far we have seized 94 kg of cannabis and ganja, 60-70 grams of cocaine. Rahim is known as Kandi (window) Rahim because he sells drugs through the window. We will continue our operations and on priority will be sending them to jail so that we can reduce the drug supply rate. We are also trying to contact the college and school authorities to bring awareness to the students about the disadvantages of drugs. Parents should also understand that when they find behavioral changes in their children, they should counsel them.
Kindi Rahim is the main trouble maker in the city, he was supplying drugs, ganja and cannabis to the students. We have also seized 40 grams of cocaine from a Nigerian. We are trying to keep Rahim for one year in Bellary jail. Most of the victims are college and school dropouts, he said.
