Kochi: Law minister P Rajeev said that Kerala Anti-social Activities (Prevention) Act (KAAPA) will be slapped on those who are charged in drug-related incidents in the state.
He added that the state government aims to end drug trafficking networks in Kerala. His remark came during a human chain organised by school students at the High Court junction to prevent the spread of drugs.
"The nation and future generations can be saved from the scourge of addiction only if everyone comes forward together. Drugs are being seized not only from Kerala but also from other states. The government is working with a determination that Kerala should be drug-free," he said
"This is not an issue that can be resolved through legal action alone. Many crimes are committed by those addicted to drugs, which leads to even murder. The government has decided that shops caught selling drugs on school premises will never be allowed to open again," he said.
