    The South Zone police in Hyderabad have started a special drive to address substance abuse among young people in the Old City area. This initiative was prompted by AIMIM floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi raising the issue during the monsoon session, and Minister KT Rama Rao’s subsequent assurance on August 6.

    According to police officials, counseling sessions are being held for 50-100 young people in different police station areas. The police are urging parents to send their children to recommended drug de-addiction centers if they are identified as being at risk.
