Itanagar: A women’s body — Women Against Social Evils (WASE) — has claimed that migrants from Bangladesh are involved in drug peddling in Arunachal Pradesh.

Speaking during an event at Pasighat in the state, WASE president, Yamik Dulom Darang raised concern over the alleged smuggling of drugs into the state from Assam’s Jonai and Leku-Jhelum areas.

”Bangladeshi migrants living along the Assam-Arunachal are primely involved in spreading drug addictions among the youth of Arunachal Pradesh,” she added.

She also requested the chief ministers of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam to crack down on illegal Bangladeshi settlers along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border.

WASE secretary, Joya Tasung Moyong emphasizes the need of forming anti-drug committees to fight the menace of drugs.

Both Yamik and Joya stated that people living in such areas need to be extra vigilant in regard to the movements of drug paddlers.

As per them, drug paddlers target youths from Arunachal villages and towns like Rani, Sille-Oyan, Pasighat, Mebo, etc.
