“In the capsules relayed, top ANC officials spoke about drug abuse and the ill-effects of addiction. These programmes were relayed through the fortnight starting June 26 in which callers participated as well. We did get a decent response in the 20minute programmes,” said D Kale, assistant commissioner of police (ANC).
The capsules will be relayed for a few more days.ANC officials also covered around 40 educational institutions, including private and municipal schools and colleges in Mumbai where they interacted with students.
“During the awareness sessions, we showed them educational short films along with photos of those persons who ruined their lives because of addiction. There were posters and other written material that were distributed,” said Kishore Jadhav, deputy commissioner of police (ANC).
