Inhalant Abuse in India

From Times of India in New Delhi:

The headmaster of a high school in the Baragian area of the state capital is concerned about inhalant abuse in his school.

The article notes, “Students, including ex-students, have fallen to addiction of adhesives and often steal articles from the school and surrounding areas to buy adhesive stick and glue.”

The headmaster remarked, "To purchase the glue stick, the students stole the wall clock of my cabin, lifted bicycles of teachers and students, the brass school bell, utensils, rods from benches, wires and several other things. They sell these to scrap dealers."
