In Amritsar, a woman was forced to chain her daughter to bed to stop her from taking drugs.
The woman reportedly sought help from government de-addiction centres and even reached out to authorities, before finally resorting to a more extreme measure.
After the incident came into light, Amritsar MP Gurjeet Singh Aujla visited the family and assured them of medical help.
The leader said, "It's an unfortunate incident.
I've directed doctors to treat the affected girl at her home". Woman who chained drug-addict daughter to bed said, “I admitted my daughter to a Government-run de-addiction centre 3 times, but they used to release her in 4-5 days.
How can a drug addict be cured in 4-5 days? I even implored doctors to admit my daughter till she was cured, but to no avail.”
Deputy Commissioner of Police Mukhwinder Singh Bhullar said: “The police buddy project helped the victim get treatment. She was given medication today as well.” About her being chained, he said the girl had the key to the lock of the chain.
