Don’t let Goa become an ‘Udta Punjab’: Goa DGP

PANAJI: Director general of police (DGP) Muktesh Chander on Sunday urged the people of the state not to allow Goa to become 'Udta Punjab' in terms of the narcotic trade.
'Udta Punjab' is a movie based on drug abuse in the state of Punjab. Speaking on the occasion of International day against drug abuse and illicit trafficking, at Panaji, Chander appealed to the people of the state to immediately inform police about any activities related to drugs so that the law enforcers can crack down on those activities.
"As and when we get information about the drug trade, the anti-narcotic cell (ANC) of Goa police immediately take action," he added.
Chander recently directed the ANC and coastal belt police stations to intensify action against the narcotic trade. The direction was given after the DGP reviewed drug cases in the state.
Over the last three years, Goa police has seized 10 different types of narcotics worth a total of over Rs 16 crore. The drugs seized include ganja, charas, cocaine, LSD papers, amphetamine, ecstasy tablets, heroin, methoxybenzyl (phenethylamine) and LSD liquid.
