In a step to take stock of the functioning and infrastructure at private de-addiction centres across Punjab, the state government Wednesday informed the Punjab and Haryana High Court that it will conduct inspection of all such de-addiction centres within a month.
Punjab’s additional advocate general Reeta Kohli, during the hearing of narcotics-related cases, informed the Division Bench comprising
Justices Surya Kant and Sudip Ahluwalia that the state government is also going to re-visit the rules governing de-addiction centres. She assured the court that after carrying out inspection by district-level committees, a detailed report would be submitted in the High Court. The case would now come up for hearing on September 7.
