Majority of the drugs are shipped in Pakistan: Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Friday that the security in the ocean needs to be strengthened because most of the drugs are shipped from Pakistan and all the drugs supplied in Pakistan go via Iran to Sri Lanka and Africa.

Shah also added that the fight against drug control is not just the responsibility of the Centre but also of the states, societies and citizens.

In his speech to the southern States and Union Territories in a regional meeting on ‘Drug Trafficking and National Security’ he claimed that at least 60 to 70 percent of drug smuggling occurs through the sea route.

The Minister said, “We need a top-to-bottom and bottom-to-top approach, sparing no one who is involved in drug trafficking.”

Further he added, “When we catch a big fry, we need to investigate the entire chain of networks down below. When we catch a drug addict, we need to investigate those who supplied them”.
