Punjab’s drug epidemic is not news for most of us. The youth has succumbed to heavy use of easily available heroin smuggled from Afghanistan and Pakistan and locally made opioids. The crucial question is who is to blame?

Angry villagers got hold of a drug peddler and attacked him with sharp weapons. His limbs were sliced while others made a video of the disturbing incident. The 25-year-old was later rushed to the hospital by the police but he died due to the injuries.

 

Vinod Kumar, alias Monu Arora, was a resident of the same village. He was accused of selling drugs in the area using his mobile phone. He left the village 6 months ago after villagers forced him to leave. Inspector Jagdish Kumar informed NDTV,

He was facing some cases under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act and had come out of jail only 3-4 days back.



Vinod’s father, Vijay, is also an accused drug dealer serving jail time under trial. After the villagers spotted Vinod back in the village they attacked him right away. When police intervened and took him to the hospital for medical assistance, the angry mob surrounded the place protesting against the help provided to the drug dealer.

 

Suspecting more violence, police shifted Vinod to a hospital in Faridkot, 45 km away. However, the victim died from the injuries soon after. The case of attempt to murder has been registered against the unknown persons under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code.
