Punjab’s drug problem Punjab and other parts of north India have a culture of consuming ‘afeem’ for recreational and other purposes said Pramod Kumar Director Institute for Development and Communication (IDC) Chandigarh who led a 2001 study on drug user profiles that was tabled in the Punjab State Assembly in 2008 It may be recalled that in 2007 expelled Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh was reported to have distributed a poppy-based drink to guests at an event in his native village Jasol in Rajasthan Contrary to the image of an idle Punjabi taking to drugs only 16 percent of the IDC’s sample of drug users was unemployed “24 percent of drug users were farmers and 25 percent were labourers mostly migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh put on drugs to extract maximum work out of them” according to Kumar Supply is easy because heroin from Afghanistan is smuggled across the border into Punjab for onward transit to the West Opium poppy husk charas and ganja among other drugs enter the state from Himachal Pradesh Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan etc Chemists and other peddlers supply prescription drugs “The green revolution and healthy remittances from overseas have put more money in the hands of the middle class” said Kumar and fuelled “demand for conspicuous consumption goods like alcohol and drugs” Better policing family participation and above all skilling “Too many people are out to earn money by peddling drugs” –Ravi (name changed) 23 a drug addict who quit a few months ago told this reporter easy supply and peer pressure got him hooked about five years ago during his college days Punjab needs “supply side interventions such as checking the illegal drug trade and confiscating the illegally acquired assets of those involved with the drug trade something the law allows (section 68 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act 1988)” said the IDC’s Kumar Interventions to reduce demand would include initiatives “to make the youth employable build partnerships with parents and community leaders to become mentors for the prevention and treatment of drug abuse” said Kumar “It is the state’s responsibility to create sports and other recreational facilities for youth; essentially the focus should be on healthy ways of having fun and spending free time learning to enjoy life without drugs” said Deol of the Guru Nanak Trust Treatment is integral to reducing drug demand In 1979 a study published in the British Journal of Addiction found 19 percent of a sample of Chhajli’s (then) 6699 population using opium mostly as dependent users; 6 percent used barbiturates and 2 percent cannabis A 2011 study of the same village published in the Delhi Psychiatry Journal found only 34 percent of the sample was addicted to opium marking an 82 percent fall in the use of opium attributable “to the efforts of post graduate students from Government Medical College Patiala to sensitise the villagers to the problem of drug use and encourage them to seek treatment” said Dr Balwant Singh Sidhu professor & head Psychiatry Rajendra Hospital Government Medical College Patiala and study co-author One of the biggest findings of the AIIMS study (see box) is that while four in five patients had tried to kick the habit just over one in three had received any kind of support One in six patients had received some kind of medical treatment and only one in 10 opioid-dependents had received Opioid Substitution Therapy (OST) de-addiction treatment that involves an opioid medication to help patients with long-term withdrawal “This is because the existing rules have been misinterpreted in the state OST is being allowed only for the licensed in-patient centres” said Ambekar “Punjab must integrate OST into out-patient clinic-based health services for better results Restricting such treatment only to addicts admitted to de-addiction centres is severely limiting the number of patients who can be helped” In April 2012 the deputy chief minister consulted psychiatrists from the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research Chandigarh to draw up a strategy to reduce addiction The recommendations of the consultation with psychiatrists required Badal’s administration to create five model de-addiction centres (in Amritsar Faridkot Patiala Jalandhar and Bathinda) and 25 intermediate-level de-addiction centres train medical professionals and make available essential drugs for running the services Badal would do better to share an update on the implementation of these recommendations Punjab Opioid Dependence Survey: Key findings To arrive at the number of opioid addicts the investigators of the Punjab Opioid Dependence Survey 2015 interviewed 3620 opioid addicts in 10 of 22 districts of the state home to 60% Punjab’s people A key question put to each user in the sample was: Did you check into a treatment centre in your district in 2014 Only 18% of the sample answered “yes” while the actual admissions for treatment in those 10 districts were 2414 in 2014 This yielded a figure of 134000 opioid addicts for the 10 districts and 232000 for the entire state Some key findings of the profile of

of burglaries at residences of JNU professors inside campus has faculty members on edge after as many as six daylight burglaries were reported in a specific area of the campus last month The latest break-in was reported Sunday afternoon when homes of two professors were found ransacked within hours of each other Faculty members and the administration said the burglaries followed a set pattern with houses being targeted in the Dakshinapuram area on campus between 3 and 5 pm Two of the six professors have filed FIRs at the Vasant Kunj (north) police station Watch What Else Is Making News JNU Rector Chintamani Mahapatra said the administration is taking steps to prevent such instances “The pattern of burglaries has led to a widespread belief that the thieves are hiding somewhere within the JNU campus So we are taking steps accordingly Firstly within a few days we are going to have a Town Hall interaction between senior police officers and the JNU community where they will sensitise people about how to prevent such instances We are also thinking of starting some kind of community policing of the area” he said JCP (southeastern range) R P Upadhaya said two such cases have been reported to them so far “Of the two cases one is already worked out We are trying to work out the other case as well” said Upadhaya Sources in the police said the campus was gated and only staff members were allowed to enter inside “Private security guards keep a check on the visitors We have questioned them as well” said the JCP Professor Ritoo Jerath from the School of International Studies (SIS) who had gone out Sunday afternoon came back to find her house (44 Dakshinapuram) had been burgled “I left the house at 1115 am and went to visit my mother When I came back at 445 pm one of the doors was ajar and the place was ransacked I called police and JNU security immediately” she said She added that teachers suspected it was the work of people within the campus who knew their daily schedules Jerath’s neighbour Professor Kamal Mitra Chenoy said the robbers had broken into two other faculty members home — including that of Professor Sanjay Puri on Sunday “Mrs Puri came home a little earlier than she usually does and she said she heard the thieves running away Incidentally the thieves did not break into the two houses next to Professor Jerath which have dogs” said Chenoy Professor Swaran Singh also from SIS and lives across Professor Jerath said his house too was broken into and ransacked on September 15 “My daughter is getting married in November and we had valuables at home The thieves made away with a lot of items including jewellery laptops mobile phones and Rs 50000 in cash I had left my home at 2 pm for a class while the help stepped out at 3 pm When she returned she found one of the doors was shut from inside She peeped through a window and saw that the door on the opposite end was open and the place littered” he said Alcohol bottles were also found open He claimed that despite having filed an FIR there has been little progress in the case “I wrote about the incident to JNU authorities on September 19 but I’m yet to receive any acknowledgment” he

professional cricket tournament—matches in three Maharashtra stadia our calculations reveal The Bombay High Court suggested that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) reconsider its decision to hold IPL matches in Maharashtra because of a widespread drought (read IndiaSpend drought reports here here and here) but refused to stay the first match to be played at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Friday Maharashtra’s three stadia–at Mumbai Pune and Nagpur–would use 6 million litres of water for the twenty matches according to the petitioner an advocacy called the Loksatta Movement While this seems like a lot of water there are more effective ways of saving water than not watering cricket grounds if we use the concept of embedded water–the water used in production of a product Agriculture consumes almost 85 per centof water consumed in India according to India Infrastructure Report 2011 We consume water for drinking bathing cooking and even washing cars but we consume much more water through food This is because large quantities of water are used to grow and process that food For example this estimate by National Geographic says more than 1500 litres of water are used to produce half a kg of chicken and nearly 1000 litres to produce a bottle of wine “(The real culprit) is the state’s policy that encourages production of the water-guzzling sugarcane” Sunil Jain wrote in this column in the Financial Express National Geographic also tells us that more than 1500 litres of water is used to produce a kg of sugar Now even if we assume that approximately 20 per centof Mumbai’s population or 25 million people drink a cup of tea every day with a teaspoon of sugar that comes to nearly 10000 kg of sugar This sugar has 15 million litres of water embedded–meaning it has cost us 15 million litres of water to produce this much sugar That is 25 times the water to be used in the three IPL venues in Maharashtra Of course this calculation has many approximations For one estimates of how much water is embedded in different foods vary widely and can be different in different places For another we have no way of knowing how many cups of tea (or coffee or cold coffee or milk or aerated drinks) are consumed every day in the city However the calculation is an indication that intuition may not serve us well when it comes to issues such as water conservation One may point out that not consuming sugar for a day will only reduce the demand for sugar infinitesimally and will most probably not reduce the production of sugar even next year Obviously it will not have any impact on the water situation in Marathwada today But then so wouldn’t using less water in Wankhede stadium After all the water not used in Wankhede would not be transported more than 400 km away to Latur in the crisis-ridden Marathwada region in Maharashtra The High Court probably knows this but its intention is to focus the attention of people on what is happening to fellow citizens Focusing on sugar consumption is a much better way of doing that because unlike cricket growing sugarcane is a significant part of the water problem in large parts of Maharashtra and India Sugarcane uses a disproportionately high amount of water this Current Science study explained Of 650 billion cubic metres (BCM) of water available for irrigation nationwide 15 per cent or 100 BCM of water is used by sugarcane (the crop uses water from reservoirs as well as groundwater) which is planted on no more than 25 per centof India’s farmland as IndiaSpend recently reported In the Marathwada region the number of sugar mills has gone up from 40 in 2009-10 to 52 in 2014-15 Agriculture and other sectors compete for the same water and overuse as with sugarcane affects Indians in many other ways such as shortage of drinking water electricity generation etc Enabling farmers to grow alternative crops has to be part of the solution as many experts have

arrested accused said the charges were baseless They said the men were arrested without being questioned earlier and that the arrests appeared to have been done under pressure Families of at least seven of the accused said they were not scrap dealers though Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone VI) Sangramsing Nishandar had said at a press conference on April 16 that nine accused arrested the previous day were scrap dealers Families of 11 accused told The Indian Express that the Shivaji Nagar police had picked up the men on April 15 and 16 on the pretext of conducting “medical tests” They said the police had kept them in the dark about the charges slapped on the men Share This Article Related Article Though the police said there was evidence including eyewitness statements against those arrested they did not seek custody of the accused All 13 are in judicial custody in Arthur Road jail Nazneen wife of accused Saida Shaikh (48) said “My husband picks up coconut from various localities and sells the dry pulp He has nothing to do with garbage Yet the police arrested him along with the others when he was sitting on the street near our home” Family members of the thirteen accused arrested by the Shivaji Nagar police station for the Deonar dumping ground fires Photo of two accused: In blue shirt: Shamim khan in white shirt: Shoaib Shaikh Twenty-two-year-old Shoaib Shaikh’s mother Shehnaz Begum said “My son has been working as a ragpicker since he was 12 years old and he mostly picks plastic He had a valid pass to enter the dumping ground and he was not attached to any particular scrap dealer” Vehemently denying the allegation that her son was involved in any sabotage she said there was no reason for Shoaib to set fire to a place that was the only source of livelihood for the household When contacted DCP Nishandar said the police did not claim that all those arrested were scrap dealers “Some of them were working at the behest of the scrap dealers to go inside the dumping ground to either collect waste or to hire ragpickers and also to light the fire to separate the waste” he said Family members of several other accused said policemen had asked the men to come along for “blood tests” and then arrested them “One of the policemen said they were taking them for medical tests for possible harmful effects of working in the dumping ground for long hours The next thing we knew is that they were booked for the fire and produced before court and were then sent straight to jail” said Sadrunnisa Wahid Khan mother of 20-year-old Shamim Khan one of the accused arrested on Friday An hour after the men were taken to the police station the families came to know that cases had been slapped against them for causing the fire at the Deonar dumping ground on January 28 The 13 accused have been booked under six charges including Sections 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) 285 (negligent conduct with respect to fire or combustible matter) 435 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to cause damage) 436 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to destroy house) 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code The charges if proven are serious enough to warrant maximum of a life term The fire which first broke out in January and lasted 10 days before restarting intermittently several times in the later weeks worsened the air quality in the city forcing the government to order an inquiry into the matter An FIR was registered against unknown persons which now includes names of the 13 accused “When we first came to know about the arrests the police kept telling us that they would let my husband go by Saturday morning Later the police said they had orders to make these arrests and that more people would be picked up” said Sakira Shaikh whose husband Mohammad Hussain Shaikh drives garbage dumpers The police arrested nine men on Friday evening and then four on Saturday and all nine were sent to judicial custody by a local court where they were presented on Saturday and Sunday respectively The police did not seek custodial interrogation of any one of them At the same time family members said these men had not been previously interrogated by police either Nishandar said he would have to check with the investigating officer why custodial interrogation was not sought to probe their role in the fires “The police have claimed that some ragpickers gave statements that they were hired by these accused to light fires to segregate waste The accused include ragpickers How did the police decide which ragpicker to charge as accused and whom to make witnesses” asked one family member He asked how the police would prove a common intent of all the scrap dealers together to light a fire inside the dumping ground on the day of the incident Responding to queries on why the police had initially claimed that all those arrested were scrap dealers Additional Commissioner of Police (East Region) Manoj Lohia said “We will not categorise the accused as those who are scrap dealers and those who are not We have arrested those against whom there is evidence including statements by witnesses who have said they were hired by these men to light fires to the waste We know that there are many more who are behind the fires and our investigation will lead us to them” He added that there were some working on salaries of these accused to light the fires and that some of these were witnesses in the case When asked how they had differentiated between which ragpickers to arrest and which ones to take as witnesses Lohia said the investigation was still in progress WATCH INDIAN
