He said that they have detained many smugglers and drug consumers, and some detainees have been jailed and some others are facing the judicial process.
“Our state leaders including the parliamentarians have many times called on the police to control drug consumers and or smugglers. We have to spend much time to detect drug consumers and smugglers and we need financial support to hunt and monitor this criminal activity,” de Jesus said.
