Sindh govt to conduct random drug tests of students

KARACHI (HRNW) Sindh Minister for Narcotics Control Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Monday that random drug tests of some students would be conducted in different Karachi schools to arrest drug peddlers.

“Random tests of some students will be conducted and their names will be kept confidential. If a student tests positive for drugs, then their parents would be contacted and the student will be asked who provided them the drug.”

However, he clarified that no legal action would be taken if a drug test of a student returns positive.
