IIT-K counted as one of the best Institute in India and now battling a serious drug addiction. One of the Police Inspector said that many students missed their classes just because to consume drugs.
Students are more addicted to the drug marijuana dipped in some chemical and using smack & charas in low quantity. Consumption of drugs made students behave abnormally in the classrooms and many girls too found addicted to the drugs.
