KGBV School building in Mugalpora village of Pulwama district turns in hub of drug addicts.
A local resident and social activist Mudasir Ahamd Dar, said to The News Idea that drug addicts from Pulwama, Pampore and even Srinagar are being seen here while taking use of drug substances
Dar, said the construction of building has been started back before a decade but from last two years it has been left without having doors, windows and wall fencing.
He also told that we have approached to the concerned authorities ample times but they always give lame excuse of unavailability of funds.
“The excuse of no funds has converted KGBV school building into safe house for drug addicts.We are requesting district adminstration and Governor Manoj Sinah Sahab, to kindly interven into the matter and on fast track basis funds should be released for the building”, Dar added.
However, it is pertained to mention that drug menace among Kashmiri youth is shooting up day by day and deaths are also being reported due to overdose of drug substances.
