    Multi-million dollar drug nexus along India-Pakistan border

    A multi million drug nexus operating under the noses of the Border Security Force, The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, The Narcotics Control Bureau and the Intelligence Bureau, leaving them as mere bystanders to Punjab's erosion. The yearly consumption of alcohol in Punjab is touching 29 Crore bottles making it one of the highest per capita consumers of alcohol in the world!

    Entire families have been wiped out because of this epidemic. 73.5% of Punjab's youth is caught up with horrible drugs/substance abuse and alcohol consumption.
    Consequences - locality of widows, slum of addicts, mothers who have lost ALL their kids, broken families and orphans, illegal for-profit rehabilitation centers where people have died.

    Sheer incompetence of the Indian agencies and government blows my mind! There HAS to be more international awareness!
