Not one should die due to addiction: DGP

Wednesday, 24 February 2021 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Not even one person should die due to drug addiction, Chhattisgarh Director General of Police D.M. Awasthi said here on Tuesday as he launched the website of a special de-addiction programme for police personnel.

“Be it the Naxalite front or civilian safety, you always       perform your duty even if it may cost your life. Giving up life on the line of duty is a mark of  bravery for us but not a single life should be lost due to addiction,” Awasthi said.

The website of ‘Nai Subah’ de-addiction programme was launched at the 3rd Battalion at Amleshwar.

Awasthi said the policeman's will power must be strong. "With strong willpower one can         distance themselves from     addiction. Think about your family without you, their lives are incomplete," he told his     personnel.

The Commandant of the 3rd Battalion, Prakhar Pandey, said there is a treatment for addiction which affects health and family.

Under the ‘Nai Subah’ programme, police personnel suffering with different kinds of addictions are kept in the 3rd Battalion. In batches of 30, they are undergoing the programme for 15 days.

The addicts are kept under medical observation and       physiatrists regularly provide counselling.
