'Narco-terror threat'

The growing narco-terrorism across the border is a matter of grave concern.


The panel comprises STF chief Harpreet Singh Sidhu, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Kahan Singh Pannu and Director, Health Services, Dr Avneet Kaur.

Chairing a video-conference to review the drug de-addiction and treatment infrastructure, the CM asked the STF on drugs to expand the outreach of OOAT clinics. The state currently has 190 government OOAT centres in addition to 119 private de-addiction centres and another nine centres in jails.

Capt Amarinder said the backbone of the drug mafia had been broken and many big fish nabbed.
