‘Defunct’ Drugs Department
The failure of Drugs Controller Department headed by an officer of Assistant Controller rank has made the department virtually defunct as no officer is doing his job. As the post is being headed by an incompetent junior officer, the field staff of Drugs Department is involved in earning money one way or the other.
It is the duty of Drugs Department to monitor the sale and purchase of intoxicant drugs like Corex etc. in which they have miserably failed and the police department which has the main duty to enforce law and order cannot ignore the sale of contraband and intoxicating drugs in Jammu.
