12125 People associated with Online Drug Sale got arrested in China
Chinese police have arrested 12,125 people during an investigation on online narcotics sales and has recovered more than 300kg of illegal drugs. It is indeed a big achievement for the police as these illegal drugs would have been sold to youngsters if these arrests would not have been performed. Arresting 12,125 people associated with drug smuggling is a crucial step taken by the police as it would demoralise those people who are still involved in these kinds of illegal business.
Xinhua state news agency reported on Sunday that police came to know about this illegal online racket after investigating chat rooms in the western cities of Lanzhou and Xian that were used to sell drugs. The police were investigating in this matter from a long time and knew that youngsters were engaged in illegal drug trade. After examining the matter thoroughly, the police got strong evidences and therefore these arrests have been performed. These drugs dealers were masters in their business. For example, newcomers were only allowed to enter the chat room after being introduced by ‘acquaintances’ and taking drugs live via webcam,” a police officer told Xinua. These dealers took every possible step which could save them from police but they forgot that the police was one step ahead of them. Police began detaining suspects in early September, according to the report, and the youngest suspect was 14 years old.
Trade in drugs of abuse such as cocaine, heroin and amphetamines has long been a frustrating feature of the international scene. After attempting for years to combat the drug trade on an individual or bilateral basis, nations have belatedly come to realize that coordinated international action is the only effective way to restrain the trade and, in addition, that social and other broad action is the only means to reduce incentives to participate in it. It is like a cow web in which youngster get involved and destroy their future and therefore it is extremely necessary to take strict actions on illegal drug dealers. Youngsters are the future of the country and if they will start taking drugs or dealing in drugs then the scene would be preposterous for that country.
There is a big role illegal websites in promoting such activities and therefore websites must take responsibility in fighting such illegal activities and new laws be drafted to cope with this new problem, the Xinhua report said.
