Women's panel visits Bangladesh Colony

By Our Staff Reporter

KOZHIKODE, DEC. 20. The State Women's Commission (SWC) visited the Bangladesh Colony here, which of late has been the centre of drug mafia operations.

A youth of the colony had died of an overdose of drugs a few days back.

The chairperson of the SWC, M. Kamalam, and member P. Khulsu were among the team that visited the colony.

The members met women in the two divisions of the Corporation. The panel enquired about the reasons for the widespread use of drugs among the residents, especially the youth.

The residents told the members of the panel about the activities of an organisation that functioned under the Aids Control Society. Syringes were easily available in the colony and these were being used by those addicted to drugs.
