PAMPORE: The Station House Officer of Pampore held a meeting with village headmen of his jurisdiction on Friday and briefed them on their responsibilities, privileges and duties.
As many as 25 headmen and chowkidars attended the meeting chaired by SHO Manzoor Ahmad Beigh.
“The village heads and chowkidars know everything happening in their villages,” said Beigh adding that being locals they keep knowledge of activities and even come across miscreants.
He further reiterated upon the village elders and Chowkidars that they should remain vigilant in their areas so that the young generation might not get involved in using or trading drugs. He said the misuse of drugs and opiates ruins the vitals of the society and it is incumbent upon the elders of the villages to be vigilant and stop the proliferation of these substances.
