There was concern over the hookah spreading in the city and officials concerned were urged to firmly take action against the organisers who were at large. Meanwhile, youth and children are falling prey to hookah smoking. Hookah centres in the city are serving as a haven for conducting certain illegal activities. So far several cases have been booked and some of them were closed down. But it has been on the rise as organisers started selling them while mixing sedatives with hookah.
Drugs, cocaine, ganja and herain were mixed with harmful hookah and sold to youth and children turning them into slaves. Doctors warned that their life was in danger at the age of 30 after smoking hookah. Psychologists said that there were chances that such victims are prone to commit crime. Tobacco itself is dangerous. On the other with hookah several other harmful ingredients were added and offered to youth. Organisers of hookah centres were converting many youth into borrowers. Boys too were addicted to this smoking for enjoying a kick or so. As the dues increase merchants did not hesitate to conduct raids on homes of the victims if the amounts were not paid as stipulated. That is the sad story of hookah today.
