Srinagar: With an aim to spread awareness about the menace of drug abuse in the valley, a drug awareness program was organised in a government school by a local help group on Tuesday.
The event organised by ‘All JK Youth Society’ was held in a government girl’s school in Srinagar, where over 500 girls attended the program.

The girls responded very positively and looked keen to make a difference.
