Aizawl: The Police Department in Mizoram has decided to induct at least 300 personnel into detoxification and rehabilitation camps.

The policemen in the dry state consuming alcohol seem to have become a major concern and the Government has been trying to enforce a total prohibition.

With this, 338 policemen were identified by the state police department.

The identified personnel reportedly have been suffering from various ailments due to the consumption of alcohol and other substances.
