At a time when police department is busy in destroying bhung cultivation across Kashmir Valley, scores of youth can be seen in Sanat Nagar area of Kashmir capital Srinagar extracting bhung in broad day light.
Reports said that the area lying between Sanat Nagar bund and Chanapora is full of bhung cultivation while police have so far failed to destroy it. Eyewitnesses said that scores of youth addicted to Charas (Cannabis) can be seen roaming in these bhung fields near Sanat Nagar Bund.
All along the day these youth extract bhung to convert it into charas and later on they sell it in market to people.
“This area has become hub of drug and immoral activities. Drug addicts and Bhung extractors can be seen passing time at secluded spots. They even pass lewd comments on female folk who pass through the area,” said a respectable citizen.
Locals appealed police to destroy the bhung cultivation and initiate action under law against the violators. (with inputs from CNS)
