The provincial capital police and other authorities have failed to save the children from prostitution and instead are providing them with some dangerous drugs by which they could feel less pain or will be unconscious. More than 447 dens are available in the city police division, among them 153 are related to gambling, approximately 71 to prostitution and other 223 are to drug peddling.

In Lahore more than 1,906 are being housing “safehavens” and they are divided into three types of crime categories. Among them 1,123 are selling and dealing in drugs, nearly 318 in Prostitution and more than 465 in gambling. In Model Town Division nearly 227 such places are present and among them 44 were from gambling,53 of Prostitution and 180 of drug peddlers dens. The government is paying less attention to solve this serious issue which is being plaguing our provincial capital and destroying the life of the people and children who are forcefully prostituted and have been the victim of gambling.

I request to the government to take a step forward to eradicate this issue and arrest those people who are making the people compelled to sell and buy drugs and the owner of prostitutes too. Then the country can live a beautiful and a bright future.
