According to a statement, Baijal directed the Delhi Police to share inputs regarding international routes for drug supply with the border forces to curb networks involved in drug trafficking.
"Further, it was desired by the L-G that special checks may be made near educational institutions, schools, colleges, etc. to prevent luring of children/adolescents into drugs," it said.
