Maharashtra to get Anti Narcotics Task Force under IG-rank officer to curb drug menace

Asserting that Maharashtra police has a "zero tolerance" policy towards drugs and drug peddling, top officials on Thursday said that the state will soon have an Anti Narcotics Task Force headed by an Inspector-General rank officer to curb the menace, reported the PTI.

According to the news agency, the police is taking the "up and down" approach to drug enforcement, under which the probe concentrates on the supplers as well as at the end of the peddling chain, they added.

Addressing a press conference, Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Sadanand Date and Additional Director General of Police (ADG) Sanjay Saxena pointed out that drug possession cases had gone up from 1,823 in 2022 to 2,491 till October this year. The figure till October last year was 1,530, as per the PTI.
