Govt steps in after video of Punjab addict chained at home surfaces

Aug 29, 2019 22:19 IST

After disturbing visuals of a young addict who was kept chained at home by her mother in Amritsar  went viral, the Punjab government has now decided to send a team of doctors to treat the girl at home. The 24-year-old was kept shackled by her mother who told the media, that she resorted to the extreme measure after failing to get proper medical treatment for her daughter. She also alleged that peddlers had access to addicts at government-run rehabilitation centres and kept supplying her drugs. Amritsar MP Amritsar Gurjeet Singh Aujla also visited the girl's home on Tuesday.
