Women conduct ‘drug eradication drive’

ROING, May 25: A group of 20 women from Mayu village conducted a surprise ‘drug eradication drive’ at the urban model village here on Friday and found six drug abusers, including a peddler.
Two packets of brown sugar weighing 10.40 gms, a set of rolled 10-rupee notes, a coin studded with pink powder, 10.50 gms of ganja, a portable weighing scale, three lighters, and a scissor were recovered by the women from the group’s possession.
On receipt of information, a police team headed by DSP Opir Paron and Inspector Abraham Taying, which was on a similar raid in another area, arrived at the spot.
All the six culprits, along with the recovered items, were handed over to the police.
The model village has long been notorious for accommodating drug peddlers, abusers, and antisocial activities.
“They (antisocial elements) are so noisy that we cannot even sleep at night. Drugs, alcohol and many other unimaginable activities take place in the evenings,” said a resident.
