Mangalore: Parents lose young daughter to drug abuse

Mangalore: Sneha case - Strict action will be taken against drug mafia, says C T Ravi

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore (SP)


Mangalore, Feb 4: The suicide case of Sneha (18) who was reportedly addicted to drugs has shocked the city and underscored the need to fight drug menace among youngsters.

Taking swift action in this regard, Dakshina Kannada district in-charge minister C T Ravi called Kavoor police station and instructed the station house officer to take up in-depth investigation into the death of Sneha and take steps to crush the drugs mafia.

He said he would also instruct the police commissioner as well as the western range inspector general of police to take stringent steps against those peddling drugs.

The minister, addressing a press conference here on Sunday February 3, expressed serious concern about the fact that students have easy access to drugs, which denotes that the drug mafia has become deep-rooted in the region. He exuded confidence that the police department will be able snuff out the drug mafia.

Meanwhile, Sneha's father Gururaja Upadhyaya said he had not spoken against the mafia so far as he was afraid that the reputation of his family would be at stake.

“My daughter’s death should not go waste. Even if I lose my life in my battle against the drugs mafia, I will not rest. My relentless fight with drugs cartel will continue,” he stated.

He said that drugs and parties had taken over the mind of his daughter, as a result of which, she had failed to heed to advices and counseling sessions.

Mangalore: Parents lose young daughter to drug abuse

Brijesh Garodi
Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore

Mangalore, Feb 3: Sneha (18), a resident of Padavinangadi here allegedly committed suicide by hanging in her room on Saturday February 2. The incident came to light on Sunday February 3 morning when her parents knocked on her door and did not get any response.

The main reason for her suicide is said to be her addiction to drugs, alcohol, ghutka and tobacco. Her body has been brought to Wenlock mortuary, where the post-mortem will be conducted and the body will be handed over to the family for the last rites.

A case has been registered in the Kavoor police station and investigations are on.

Speaking to media persons, her mother Sunitha Upadhya said that Sneha was persuing her education in 1st PU at Sharada Vidhyalaya last year. As they were doubtful and concerned over her behaviour and lifestyle, they began doing a regular follow-up on her whereabouts and her day-to-day movements.

"We found that she was highly addicted to drugs, alcohol, gutkha and tobacco. She has been addicted for nearly one-and-a-half years. After we came to know of her addiction, we admitted her to Spandana Hospital, Bangalore, after consultation with Father Muller and Mangala Hospitals here. She was admitted to Spandana in February 2012, where she was under treatment for 2 months. She recovered nearly 60% from her addiction and was under medication," she said.

On Saturday night, the girl demanded Rs 1500 from her mother, promising to return it at the end of this month. However, her mother refused. Angered by this, she reportedly locked herself in her room. The light in her room was switched on throughtout the night. In the morning, when her parents did not get any reponse on knocking her door, they forced it open and found her hanging by the ceiling fan.

"We had tried to lodge complaints with the police many times, but in vain. But the members of Bajrang Dal helped every time to find her out. A few months ago when she escaped from home, she was traced with the help of Bajrang Dal at Manipal End Point”, Sunitha said.

The parents said that a day after she was found in Manipal, they prohibited her from going out of the house. Sneha in turn called the police and the child welfare committee and complained that her parents had kept her under house arrest. The police and child welfare officials then advised the parents to give her treatment.

"There are a few among her friends' circle who are also addicted to drugs and also she always used to regularly visit pubs, with money taken from the house," Sunitha added.

Her father Gururaj said that she was a topper in her class upto 9th standard and later she began to lag behind in her studies. "It was then that we had a doubt on her activities. She also used to miss classes in the afternoon and attend DJ parties in hotels," he said.

“We have already lost our daughter, but let others awake and prevent such incidents in future. Let the district administration and the police department take genuine steps to prevent drug abuse among youngsters," her parents said with tears in their eyes.

Speaking to the media persons, Sharan Pumpwell, unit convenor, Bajrang Dal said while the members of Bajrang Dal have been trying to stop and prevent drug mafia, parties and DJs, some sections of the so-called intelligent people are trying to strongly oppose saying that Bajrang Dal is jobless. Let those people visit Sneha’s parents and have a look at their situation after losing their daughter to this mafia."

"If this sort of drug mafia is not restricted by the department concerned, we will take law into our hands and take stringent action, so as to prevent such incidents from recurring. Bajrang Dal will continue its fight against drug mafias," Sharan warned.

Sorry to hear about Sneha. RIP. I think BD people have done a great work here by helping parents when needed. This must have been done by police. Atleaste now police must take this issue of drug mafia seriously and take steps to prevent them. I dont want my youngsters to be the victim of all this

I totally agree with you Mr. Mohandas Kapikad. Then, is it not our duty to pressurize the authorities to shut down the pubs & other joints permanently in a peaceful and legal channels instead of attacking the girls by filthy illiterate animals.

If somebody is trying to divert the attention of the people and cops from the death of a young girl to the sale of drugs in Mangalore, I would say they have been very successful in doing so.
I don't say the girl has never been a victim of substance abuse, but this suicide looks to have more secrets than it meets the eye. Especially the mourning mothers quick remarks about fighting drug trade when her own daughter is lying dead is a tactic to divert attention. I feel the issue started with 1500 and ended with the girls life, what happened in between in questionable. The cops must grill the father, he looks like a man who would break down easily. The mother is smart.(and i appreciate it.!).!

plz do not blow things out of proportion. its a sad thing that the girl had to go thru this. unfortunately no one understands drug addicts. its a difficult thing to get out of.DAs will never come out of their closet asking for help. taking drugs and going to a rehab would have helped her if her parents could understand clearly what she was goin thru. cutting ur system clean or detoxing is a big challenge for the patient and the doctors as well. more than often due to the side effects of coming out of a drug like anxiety/ panic/depression etc which play mind games with the patient, results in a relapse. thats exactly what has happened with this poor kid. now that it is confirmed that drugs are out in mlore streets and from this case view point one can understand its easily available too. need of the hour is to have a proper rehab center in mlore with expert psychiatrics and pschologic teams to handle the patients. so its my humble request from u guys that rather than bashing some organizations and bad mouthing ppl, kindly try to understand this... if a kid you know of is an addict, then please better what he/she wud ve to go thru and support that kid.

Peter Periera, dont mix up the matter of attacking pub with drug trafficking. Do you wish to supress the matter of drug addiction by students(in the name of pub culture), by highlighting the attack issue ? Read my article clearly & you have the clear picture. Students especially girls nowdays get attracted to addictions, through some means, & pub culture is such one. If you had seen TV9 new article yesterday at 10-30pm, you could had some light on the issue. First drugs are given with mixing with regular soft drinks & in later stage with liqour. Be broad minded and speak against drugs trafficking & dont round with attack issue.

Peter Pereira, Pune
Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Mohandas Kapikad, in that case it is the duty of every citizen including you and I to inform Police and not the jobless, illiterate, vagabonds on street who will take the opportunity to molest young girls and steal their belongings. If you guys are so against Pubs, why don't you protest to close them ? Why harming the people through goondas ? Are these goondas are against Pubs or annoyed by non-receipt of 'hafta', free Beer and Belly full of free meals ?

The youngsters who visit the pubs should turn to whistle blowers if they find any type of drug dragging activities inside the pubs. If the drug suppliers to these youngsters are exposed, the whistle blowers without their identity should be given monitory rewards.
It is the responsibility of the pub owners to keep strict vigilance so that their premises is free from using any kind of drugs by their pub customers or the pub owners should be held responsible for promoting drug peddlers.
The police should strictly conduct regular inspection of pubs, bar n restaurants, petty shops near school n colleges n other suspicious places and the inspection should be recorded in the police log of that police station for future reference of their visits.
The drug peddlers should be tried in fast track court without bail and they should get severe punishment for destroying the life of innocent young victims.

Visiting pubs and drinking and enjoying there is not a wrong thing.But people especially girls need to know who are they going there with.Girls today especially in the teenage get carried away easily with some sweet spoken words.It is most of the time not voluntary to take drugs. Once it is given in some indirect way and then a person just cannot do without it. And this is how the people involved in it make money by making innocents their target. My advice is just this to young boys and girls always keep your parents informed as to where and with whom you go out. Parents are not your enemies but they are always your wellwishers. Keep in mind Prevention is better than cure.

Mohandas Kapikad, Mangaluru
Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Peter Periera, you seems to be very much defender of Pub type of system. Everyone knows the facts behind pub & homestay attack. It would be inapproriate to give details of the situation prevailed within premises before attack. If you lack knowledge visit some of pubs in mangalore & keep a close eye, & you can get details. Drugs are used as hooks to get girls, & to keep a constant control. Other missuse need not be explained, as one may go to any extend to get a drug once addicted.

About your opinion about the age, I thought doctors would go through the data/facts first before forming any opinions about their patients! Here, I think you haven't looked at the photo of her Marks card, before forming an opinion!because it clearly states her date of birth.. OR, Daiji must have mistakenly uploaded the wrong photo of the body, which is unlikely, if your opinion is correct...

Mentality of people. If BD raids its their fault, If Police raids its again BD's fault.. coz some of them think BD controls the police here. BD is blamed for anything and everything. Of which everything is clear that you only want to blame BD not considering true facts and mishaps around.BD is always there when wrong takes place and nobody can stop them..

Mohandas Kapikad, you seems to be very much pro attackers of HMS & Pub. Who are these attackers and who has given them authority to attack innocent people ? They are nothing but thieves who stole Jacket, Chain and even birthday cake. So cheap of them. If they wants to rule the people, why do we require police dept. ? Why do we require Judiciary ? First wipe out these goondas from society and everything will be alright.

In TV9 News article reported on 4th Feb,2013 night 11 pm, our ex-Mayor son was involved in the drug addiction. A photo of him with this girl was displayed in the media, which clearly shows the political scene behind drug mafia.
Though at the time of Homestay & Pub attack, the blame by media was put on attackers, now the question clearly raises the nature of activities carried out in these pubs, & why students get attracted to these pubs. Our system police-media-political has perhaps failed in curbing the drug mafia in this respect.

So., nobody here thinks that the parents should have given the girl the money she demanded huh.? especially when they knew that the girl was an adict, and especially when they knew that drug addiction can't be cured by forcefully not letting the person consume the drug.!
probably if they had not house arrested the girl she would go out and make the money she needed (yeah, we all know how girls raise money for drugs.!)
Don't just blame the girl coz she cant answer. putting an addict in a situation where he cant get drugs is abetting suicide. parents should be punished.

BD may think something but end up doing wrong this.guys do which will really change something for good purpose . don try to rule the country live it on government.

RIP Sneha.I believe that drug mafia is an evil in our society and parents need to keep their children aware and protected about this.Initially even i felt very sad for her family and felt BD did a good work.But but but....I smell something really fishy here and this is because...
1.I get to know from another site that her father works at an electronic shop.So i don't really get to understand how this girl could afford drugs in the first place?
2. The mother says the girl demanded Rs 1500 from her mother, promising to return it at the end of this month.If the girl was under house arrest then how would she return the money??source of income for the girl???
3.The parents had tried to lodge complaint with the police many times..but in vain??this is such a vague statement.It is not told as to why??
4.There are a few among her friends' circle who are also addicted to drugs and also she always used to regularly visit pubs, with money taken from the house," Sunitha added.What about her friends' circle?didn't they try contacting the parents' of the friends when she was in trouble?And was money so easily accesible for her at home to REGULARLY visit pubs?
5.If Sneha could complain to the police and child welfare committee and get them home and the police had even advised the parents regarding her treatment but then why the police never lodged a complaint when the parents wanted them to?
I find everything in this story vague and i somehow doubt the whole thing.I feel it was altogether a different story and might not even involve drugs at all.The girl who had an answer to all these questions is no more.A thorough investigation has to be conducted in this case to get to know the truth so that atleast her younger sister or any other girl does not fall prey to this.

So sorry to read this tragic story of a young girl much more surprised that she was a student of Sharada Vidyalaya - Where was Prof Puranik, I wonder. What were her parents doing till she became a such a drug addict??? Why they approach BD now? It all looks very fishy! Would C T Ravi ordered a probe if it had happened to any other girl of another college? It's all a drama, meanwhile the girl lost her life! who is to be blamed? who knows how many such girls/boys die of drugs everyday! what is the solution?

We humans are really good to playing the blame game, but take responsibility for our actions.. The drug Mafia only exists and prospers because of the drug users... Here who is the user, A 18yr old girl who is old enough to know what is right/wrong for her.. There are only two groups you can be blamed here. the Girl (remember she is a mature girl) and then her parents.. There is no point blaming the drug mafia.. The drug Mafia survives only because weak minded and gullible victims fall prey to it.. If Parents control thier children and discipline them in a timely manner, then its a different picture.. If noone buys drugs then i am sure the drug mafia will not survive.. I wont be surprised that in this girls case BD says that she was forced into drugs (just as they claim on conversion)

Blaming her drug addiction for her death (suicide not yet proved) is highly immature.. She asked for Money which was refused and then she locked herself in the room and apparently hanged herself. If the girl did have problems, then why was she left alone.. Ask yourself, will you allow your child to lock herself in her room overnight?? Not exactly a easy to digest story..

Its Clear the BD is here only to promote thier existence and justify their nuisance activities..

“My daughter’s death should not go waste. Even if I lose my life in my battle against the drugs mafia, I will not rest. My relentless fight with drugs cartel will continue,” he stated.

Hello Sneha's father, instead of this battle, try to spend some quality time with your second child. Have good communication, provide quidance and give some space for her/him. You cannot battle over drugs, this is just a stupidty, instead spend time with your family and communicate with them.

Strict action is arresting drama and the same person will come back and start selling to same set of students. If anyone need real story about how drugs spread in most of educational institutions, we should speak to one or two students who are drug addicts by will or some one mixed the drugs in their drinks, condition is realy pathetic. No one is seriously willing to eradicate this dirt from the society, innocent parents paying the price..many more innocents lives on stake...parents need to form a association and fight against the mafia and those who support these mafia..we have to fight as we fight against rape case. Save the future generations from drugs. Wish media like DW help to focus this matter to fight and eradicate

The Drug Mafia accused too should be tried through Fast-Track Court and not given bail. In many countries the drug dealers get capital punishment and our Govt should also consider in that direction.

It is a gut wrenching story, the parents have lost their kid in the most unexpected way. This should raise some concern within us as this whole drug mafia has started flexing its muscles in Mangalore. We need to have a tougher laws and more importantly the enforcement of the same. Let us not forget that we are a border town with Kerala and a few hours drive from Goa. Goa did have a bad reputation for drug trade which has been taken care by right enforcement. We need to tackle this as a problem affecting us collectively and do our part honestly. As parents we need to sit and discuss this with our son/daughter that it is not the coolest thing to smoke or take illict drugs or prescription drugs to get a high. There needs to be a good degree of awareness among students so as to not to make a wrong choice. Let us see this as a step to take corrective action so that we do not have kids falling prey to drugs. We have to treat our kids with care and educate them as we have always done. I hope this would be the last incident for years to come. Kids - there is a great world of choices and possibilities don't fall for the drugs.

Mr Ravi pls. stop fooling people with your words , its only the politicians along with police and mafia make this business flourish, whenever a conignment is caught only half is burnt to fool people and remaing is sold by politicans/police and then make dramas when tragedy happens, if u really want to catch culprits you can raid coffe/tea estate and find cultivation of these products in large scale , but u want to target only petty thieves as tehy wont pay hafta.

Monday, February 04, 2013

Dear friends,
Very sad incident happened once again at Mangalore . It is condemnable and the police should take strict action against drug mafia immediately. Usually whenever such incidents happened we blame each other with hundreds of agrees and disagrees.
Just turn on your Radio/FM.You will listen the song like this from our popular channels,
Dum maaro Dumm mit jaaye gam
bolo subah shaam hare kariashnaa, hare raam

duniyaa ne hum ko diyaa kyaa ?
duniyaa se hum ne liyaa kyaa ?
hum sab kee pawraa kare kyon ?
sab ne humaaraa kiyaa kyaa ?
Just look into these lyrics with meaning.Dum is nothing but drug! Drug addicts always accepts the above theory.Now who is to be blamed?

First and foremost groups like BD should be banned,they are the one's who influence drugs amoung youth so that they can have new recruits, otherwise who in their right minds will join them. So we as parents should be role models to our children, guide our youth in the right direction and oppose mafaias like BD. We always had dreams that the younger genration will change the future of our country,but this will never happen as long as we let these morons live, i think we are the reason that these people have evoloved. Each and every society has its own organisations, groups with their own limitations, if they cross it then they are called as goons if this continues we will all be living in fear, may be the next time i need to fart ill be asking permission from BD or my neighbour might ask protection from BD. But not to worry our younger generation has a different mindset they will be different soon these BD'S will grow old ,rot and die and will be forgotten till then we need to hold on to whatever we have and make a BD freeway to our youth. jaihind

Good to see so many comments from mangalore rather than from the Middle East who are not so aware of the ground reality in mangalore.lets not point fingers at BD or the parents but realize that even our children can be vulnerable to such things. The thinking that this won,t happen to my children or the fear of the mafia and not fighting back with hurt most of us in time to come.maybe we should organize ourselves in our neighborhood and try to fight this menace as a community threat.

Brave words by the minister, but it’s easier said than done. Even in a country like Saudi it was reported that last year over a period of four months, security forces had seized narcotics worth US$460 million and had arrested 681men. If such a thing can happen in KSA, one can very well imagine the fate of India in this regard.

The health inspectors should be appointed to visit and check all those places where drug can be used. How these innocent children come in contact with such things. All parents must inform and guide their children never indulge in such things. Parents should be in touch with children in all matters.

Salute U- C.T.Ravi if you can control let alone stop Drug Menace!
In US 40 year war on Drugs has failed to curb it, but it has caused it to go underground & gangsters step in to fill the demand.
More people have died in gang rivalry than due to drugs intake!
More people are in jails who used drugs than peddlers or kingpins.
In Denmark they have legalized Drugs, with coffee shops selling minute amount to genuine users(need to produce age proof) who administer them to get rid of incurable diseases or addicts whose survival depend on its use.
That has stopped lucrative market for gangs & gang related crimes. The Government has saved lot of money in policing as well as bringing in huge Tax Income through legal-way!
U Ban something & create mafias dealing, with poor people without employment filling in as foot soldiers, who are multiplying due to recession.
I request our politicians to go on tour to study(enjoy) the impact of legalization of Drugs with Education & Counseling going Hand in Hand!

You are talking about prohibiting pubs to unmarried people - do you know lodging hotels are ensure that only married couple rent the space in them ?

For your information Praveen Kumar had ready 'Mangal Sutra' in his pocket to prove that victims were his wife !

The story goes like this.Sneha was involved in the illegal activities of the BD's.The parents who came to know about this started pleading the BD's to release her from their clutches.They were scared to approach the police fearing the BD's threats. Sneha herself got addicted to this drug...Every time she fled from the house,the parents approached the BD's because they knew where to locate her.Sneha realised her mistake. Unable to bear the BD tortures she decided to bring an end to her life. Now the BD's are trying to take advantage of this situation to cover up their illegal activities.All those who agree with me, the time begins now.Those who disagree are definitely the Bajjies.

Very very sad, my heart goes out to the parents. Time has come to stop some bars, gutkas and all night clubs. Commentators please before you give your comments think before you type. For parents of drug addict is living hell. They sell anything what is available in the house, to whom and how no body knows. I have seen this and thats why i am able to tell this. When your child is sick with fever and when you complain about this to your friends and neighbour you get from each one of them different advices, but when your child has chosen a wrong path you cant even discuss with friends because they only taunt you and find fault with parents. It is peer pressure that kids become like this. ....And when some fanatics come to know about it, they too come home to give advice by saying 'go for retreat', 'go to pota', go to Mumbai' 'you are not praying', 'you are like that and you are like this' This is another added agony comes as a parcel to parents who are already suffering emotionally. So my request to philanthropist and social workers do something that our young children are saved.

I too salute BD because they were this parents saviours.

Why does the Government give permission and license to Pubs and Liquor Shops. There is a big money in that business. Big Tax income to the State Government. Law enforcement people, Law makers, Police, and Government employees salary come from these incomes. So nobody can stop it, forget about Bajrang Dal. First stop the Pan Beeda, Beedies, Cigarettes, and tobacco products which are basic elements of Drugs. Then let the politicians talk about banning other Drug and narcotics related products. Money Talks and Money Matters.

I have a question for BD. If your intension is really to educate people about the ills of alcoholism & drugs, do not indulge in violence. You cannot control people with fear. Some day someone will retaliate and you will be paid back in the same coin.

Instead, create awareness seminars, study camps, set up rehabilitation centers and treat the eddicts with love and compassion. Ediction is a desease which needs corrective approach like conselling and medication rather than punitive approach of beating and outcasting.

Award citizens with Rs.10,000 cash for providing information about drug peddlers, which can lead to an arrest and conviction. It is easy to trace the link to origin, if you catch one drug peddler and entice him with amnesty/cash award. This is how main suppliers are caught here in the USA.

Bye the way, you guys also lead an exemplary life so that society can respect you.

Day By Day Our City Is Filled With News.
No Surprise Bd Help,news said Family Sources Said That She Had Been Addicted To The Intake Of Alcohol, Gutkha And Drugs Over The Past Years. She Is Also Said To Have Regularly Bunked Classes And Spent Time In Pubs And Dj Joints. It Was Easy For involvment of BD To Help Her.
This Age Instead Of School, Children Are Going In World ,Fun, Entertainments, To Gain Popularity Is Very Bad. Easy To Gain Habits And To Addicts But Not Come Out. This World And Day By Day Getting New Items, Facilities Are Taking Our Children To The Hell Way, Some Time Both Parents Has To Work To Provide Daily Bread, To Meet Needs, And Children Take Advantage Of This. Busy Parents Always Cant Keep Eye On Them.

I don't understand why the parents knowing the truth, were so irresponsible all this time? What is the use of all this noise and action now? Why BD, who call themselves a humanitarian organisation did not do anything?

BD should get some incidents like this where they can clear their image and people can actually start liking them instead of always blaming and cursing them...In this particular case they cannot go after the real suppliers of drugs because they might be armed and dangerous not some civilians or students who they can easily beat up.So it makes sense to ask the help of law enforcement department to go after the antisocials .Good thinking ..

My question to all...
What did BD for krishna palemar for watching porn clippings inside vidhana soudha..?
What did BD do for renukacharya?
What did BD do for Halappa for raping his friends wife..?

Is there any different laws for a common man & for politicians...?

Its clear its the publicity stunts made by BD, that they are in favour of society, the truth is they didnt even contribute 1% to our society...
Its the drama made to cover up their sins....

Good development! Incharge minister is instructing police to investigate the matter and to crush drug mafia. BD are officially out of the job! Since their load and burden is eased, it is an opportunity for them to keep own home in order and earn a decent daily bread by means of employment and hard work like other citizens!

I have seen many lives being wasted.....students lying on the floor....of some cow sheds and near the fish markets....all taking drugs in the rush of the and no one seems to notice them. The students are being told that they can study better and from being a factor that helps you ends up being an addiction. I feel bad for them.....but then ultimately you make your decisions.

As one said in the above comment i completely agree with him that there was something missing from her parents side the way she was brought up and that doesn mean bajarang dal should take law in their hands if they do that then why is police and law in India ? if every individual start thinking like this then there wont be peace. There are so many poor people dying out on the street that time bajarang dal cant see the tears ? why cant they work on such things ? and help poor people, Make arrangements for their education food and shelter rather than looking after people who have their parents schooling etc etc.if death of one student could make you think this then you should have been on your toes long back when we can see so many poor people dying due to hunger .what people say that you are jobless that is true .if you think you are not jobless then please see that there are no more poor people left and no more illiterate left improve India and Indians not only cast and religion.
