DIMAPUR — The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has reaffirmed its commitment to work along with the law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders in combating the menace of drug abuse and illicit activities.

“As responsible citizens, it is incumbent upon us to collaborate with law enforcement authorities and contribute towards creating a safer and drug-free environment for future generations,” a press release issued by NSF stated on Tuesday.

In this regard, NSF has commended the Nagaland Police for their unwavering commitment and relentless efforts in combating the scourge of drugs within the state. It stated that Nagaland Police has undertaken a vigorous campaign against drug trafficking and other illegal activities by striving to uphold the safety and well-being of the society.

It stated that on March 23, Nagaland Police achieved a significant milestone in their crusade against narcotics by apprehending Bahar Uddin and his accomplices from Sonitpur, Assam. NSF has lauded the decisive action, which demonstrated the dedication and effectiveness of the law enforcement agencies in curbing the proliferation of illegal substances within the borders.

It expressed dismay to learn that Bahar Uddin had previously held the position of president at Jama Masjid in New Market, Dimapur. The NSF found it reprehensible that someone with such a dubious background could occupy a position of trust within a religious institution.

“This revelation underscores the need for greater vigilance and scrutiny in ensuring the integrity of individuals entrusted with leadership roles in our communities,” NSF added.

Meanwhile, NSF has issued stern warning against any attempt to secure the release of Bahar Uddin or to advocate on his behalf. It called upon all civil society organisations and conscientious individuals to unite in denouncing such anti-social elements and upholding the rule of law. It also called upon to stand firm against any form of leniency or compromise in dealing with those who threatens the fabric of the society.

NSF also urges heightened vigilance against non-locals involved in illegal activities within the state and across the Naga homeland. It stated that the recent spate of arrests, which resulted in the apprehension of 37 individuals for possession of illegal narcotics and psychotropic substances, underscored the urgent need for robust enforcement measures.

NSF further stated that the Nagaland Police’s proactive stance in conducting state-wide operations to disrupt the supply chain of illicit drugs and alcohol was commendable and deserved full support.
