On this occasion, while expressing her deep concern over the growing social evils, Dilshada Shaheen said, “I feel saddened to see that many of our young boys and girls have fallen prey to the ongoing drug menace in the Valley. This is a matter of grave concern, and every responsible citizen must come forward to help out these victims.”
She further said, “Similarly, the recent crime incidents in which two women and a girl was killed have shaken all of us. Last month, we saw a heinous crime occurring in central Kashmir’s Budgam, wherein a murderer brutally killed a young woman and chopped her into multiple pieces. Now, in a recent incident, a 7-year-old girl was brutally killed, and her throat slit body thrown near her home in Kupwara. In another incident, a chronic drug addict killed his mother in Baramulla. These shocking incidents have sent shock waves in the entire society, and everyone is shocked over these occurrences.”
