Afghanistan is called the Golden Crescent in International Narcotics Trade. It is the largest producer of Narcotics like Opium, Heroin and Hashish (Charas). Unfortunately, since the Afghan War in 1989, Pakistan has suffered a huge influx of drugs due to porous borders with Afghanistan and resultantly has the highest number of (5 million) drug addicts in the world. District Khanewal is among the sufferers of narcotic trafficking. The fact that the narcotics’ dealers are using women and children for trafficking has added more complexity to the issue. However, the police department of District Khanewal is ready to take on the challenge.
