Schoolbags to be checked for drugs – Minister

Leader of the House and Education Minister Susil Premajayanta told Parliament yesterday that action would be taken to inspect schoolbags of students before they entered schools to find whether they brought in narcotics.

Minister Premajayantha said that a circular would be issued from his ministry soon to school authorities to conduct checks to inspect schoolbags of children for illicit drugs such crystal methamphetamine known as ICE.

There were very innovative and devious methods of promoting narcotics among schoolchildren and there had been no proper mechanism to prevent this menace, the Minister said, adding that parents and school authorities must come forward to save the country’s children from the drug menace.
