The chief minister told reporters on Friday that he has asked Superintendent of Police in charge of Anti Narcotic Cell to give him detailed report about the drug trade in the state including names of those who are alleged to have been involved in it.
“I have specifically told the SP that I want the report by tomorrow on my table,” he said.

The chief minister also stated that the state government will work out comprehensive plan with the help of NGOs to rehabilitate local youth who are addicted to these substances.
“At present, there is only one rehabilitation centre which is operating in the  state which is not enough. We will ensure that more such centres would be in place with the help of NGOs,” he said.
Sawant said that the drug lords who overstay in the State after expiry of their travel documents would be arrested and kept in the Detention Centre at Mapusa near Panaji.
