The parents of a 35-year-old man was tied by chains to stop him from taking drugs in Punjab's Firozpur district. The man's father, Kala Singh, said that his son is a drug addict and sells household items to buy drugs.
Jasbeer Singh, who is married and has two children, tried to commit suicide, but his attempt failed. When his family got to know of it they tied him up with chains.
"I have been trying to quit drugs, but I am unable to do so. I have been taking drugs for more than a year," Jasbeer Singh told ANI.
Jasbeer Singh's family believes that there are over 40 men in their village who are taking drugs.
Police officer Satnam Singh said that they are acting against drug peddlers. "We have been given strict orders by SP (Superintendent of Police) to act against drug peddlers. We are taking actions against them," he said.
