More Than Two Lakh Students at Risk
Notably, over two lakh students from various states come to study in Gautam Buddha Nagar district. While pursuing their dreams from ordinary families, some fall prey to drug mafias who ensnare them in their web for trafficking.

In November alone, more than 230 cases of drug trafficking have come to light.
