  1. Drugs and Heroine consumption is a serious crime and punished severely all over the world particularly Saudi, China, Malaysia and most of the UN Nations. The Police caught and Mangalore Court bailed. Only to get some penalty money they are proxy encouraging drugs in Mangalore and being a hindrance to Mangalorean Organizations who are doing their best effort to eliminate drugs.
