    Hyderabad City Police Commissioner Kothakota Sreenivasa Reddy, who recently took office, has announced plans to combat drug abuse in the city. He intends to meet with members of the Telugu film industry, known as Tollywood, to address and eliminate the prevalence of drug culture within the industry. The commissioner believes that by reducing the demand for drugs, the supply will also decrease.

He urged those involved in drug trafficking and consumption to leave the city and the state, stating that their actions would not be tolerated.
