MELAKA: A Melaka-based crime prevention group held a productive meeting on the drug menace with Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali at the invitation of the state police chief.

Melaka Indian Crime Prevention Society president Dr P. Gunalan said DCP Abdul Majid invited him to meet and give insights into efforts to combat drug problems in the state.

"We were honoured to be given an opportunity to meet the state's top cop after we highlighted the issue on April 22," he said after the meeting on Wednesday (May 5).

Also present was Melaka narcotics chief Supt Zulkiflee Rashid.

Gunalan commended the state's police action against peddlers and addicts.

"The meeting also released data on low drug abuse cases in the state," he said, adding that he also learnt how the Melaka police managed to maintain the lowest crime index in the country.

DCP Mohd Majid, he said, briefed him on the prompt action taken by the police to curb drug abuse among students.

"Schools in the state have liaison officers to oversee any wrongdoings.

"The constant raids and prevention operations managed to reduce drug abuse cases," said Gunalan.

He said his team would continue to work with the police to eradicate drug abuse in the state, and to ensure educational institutions were drug-free.
