Piyass International declares ‘drug is a curse’ as IGP launches ‘no more drugs’ drive

ISLAMABAD: The Piyass International Human Rights survey, in collaboration with global organizations, is diligently combating the proliferation of drugs and has uncovered that over 100 Sheesha Centres are operational in Islamabad.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has unequivocally prohibited these Sheesha Centres. Despite the directives from the apex court, these establishments persist in operating within the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT).

Moreover, the Islamabad High Court has repeatedly instructed the ICT administration to take decisive action against all such illicit operations within the federal capital.

The presence of over 100 Sheesha Centres in the vicinity of the federal capital flagrantly violates the orders of the superior courts, casting a significant shadow over the credibility of the Islamabad Police and administration.

The strength and audacity of this criminal network raise profound concerns. It openly peddles substances such as Charas, Gurda, Skunk, Weed, Molli, Mushrooms, LST, NDMA, Cocaine, Ice, Dancing Pills, E-Tablets, Crystal Meth, as well as more sophisticated forms of drug injections.

Furthermore, it has come to light that certain lower-ranked officers within the Islamabad Police have substantial financial interests tied to these Sheesha/Drug Centres. These establishments not only facilitate the sale of narcotics but also provide services of sex workers, further exacerbating the gravity of the situation.

 

This influential criminal network also operates digital platforms for the promotion and organization of drug-infused dancing parties, both for couples and individuals, at approximately 200+ locations across Islamabad every weekend.

They impose substantial fees for entry without couples while offering discounts to couples, aiming to ensure the success of their events.

According to the survey, journalists purportedly working for various media outlets but allegedly engaged in drug-related activities serve as the public faces for the significant investments made by certain low-ranking police officers.

Notably, one journalist, who is also involved in drug trafficking, recently shared a photo of himself alongside the new Inspector General of Police, Islamabad, and the Interior Minister on his Facebook and other social media platforms. This attempt to showcase a close association with high-ranking officials has generated negative perceptions within various segments of society.

The individual in question, purportedly a journalist, is in fact a certified drug peddler and a leader of a syndicate involved in this reprehensible crime under the guise of journalism. He has been apprehended on multiple occasions for drug trafficking, with photographic evidence of his involvement, including images of him with drugs and handcuffs, documented by law enforcement and widely circulated on social media.

Operating within the realm of journalism, this drug cartel seeks to establish connections with newly appointed officials such as the Interior Minister and the Inspector General of Police, Islamabad. They strategically capture photos with these officials to portray close ties with high-ranking authorities in the Islamabad Capital Territory administration. This tactic is employed to exert pressure on upright police officers and district administrators, enabling the continuation of their illicit activities. Consequently, this nefarious trade persists unchecked, extending even into educational institutions nationwide.

In its forthcoming press release, Piyass International pledges to expose these offenders with irrefutable evidence, including visual documentation, and will submit such evidence to the relevant authorities for necessary action to eradicate this harmful practice from society.
