Sopore, Apr 26: Police on Wednesday said that among the many youth including girls in the Sopore area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district are addicted to drugs.

“In Sopore, many youth including girls are drug addicts,” SDPO Sopore, Dr Raies Ahmed Mir said at a drug de-addiction awareness rally here in the town.

The rally was organised by the district administration Baramulla “in view of the rising numbers of drug addiction cases and to educate people, especially students, about the ill effects of drugs”.

On the occasion, SDPO said that parents have a greater responsibility in the social development of a child as they act as the first teacher and guides of their wards.

The police officer cautioned students about the negative impacts of drugs which he said “hampers one’s mental growth”. He, however, said that the person with such addiction should not be hated but counselled.

Dr Raies also highlighted the role of the Jammu & Kashmir Police in the prevention of drug addiction and sought people’s cooperation in eradicating the evils prevalent in society.

“Police would be a helping hand to those who want to get rid of drug addiction,” he said.

The rally passed through the busiest Iqbal Market in town and culminated at Dak Bangalow. It was actively participated by hundreds of students who expressed concern over drug abuse through art charts and paintings—(JK Revolution)

Ganderbal, Apr 25 : Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is in Kashmir to shoot his upcoming movie ‘Dunki’.

 

The actor arrived at a hotel in Sonamarg on Monday night along with actor Taapsee Pannu and will be shooting at the location for a few days there.

 

Officials said prior security arrangements were done. A huge crowd of Shah Rukh Khan’s fans have arrived on the spot.

 

The shooting, an official said, will proceed for four days in the valley – first in Sonamarg and then in the Dal Lake Srinagar. The movie is directed by Rajkumar Hirani.

 

A tourist, Aakash from Delhi told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that it is an “extremely joyous moment” for him to witness the scenic view of Sonamarg, and Khan’s arrival “added to my joy”.

 

Another tourist said that through movies and video songs, people from outside Kashmir come to know about the beautiful places in Kashmir and they come here to explore the valley.

 

Abdul Rasheed, a local from Sonamarg, told KNO that their livelihood depends on tourism and the shooting of movies helps them earn a bit more. “The movie shootings boost tourism, transport, hotel, food and many other sectors, thus boosting the economy,” he said.

 

Till the late 1980s, Bollywood and Kashmir were linked together but due to unfavourable conditions since 1989, very few filmmakers came here. However, for the past few years, the J&K administration has been making all-out efforts to bring the film industry back to Kashmir saying the situation is favourable now—(KNO)
