Amritsar's youth and drug addiction

High percentage of youth in the Indian city of Amritsar are drug addicts.



    Amritsar is one of India's most magnificent cities - home to the stunning golden temple ... but a staggering seventy per cent of the city's young people are drug addicts.

    Amritsar's proximity to the heroin trail out of Pakistan and Afghanistan makes it a prime target for drug traffickers.
