Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Sunday said dope test will be made mandatory for the students before university admission by amending the relevant law.

He said laws are being amended and students will be brought under dope test according to the law. “Medical tests including the dope test will be done at the time of their admission,”

The minister informed this at a press conference on the occasion of 'International Day against Drug Abuse and Illegal Trafficking, 2022' at the secretariat.

Replying to a question, the Home Minister said, "We have already started dope test of police members when the Prime Minister announced zero tolerance against drug abuse."

They also sent a proposal to the Prime Minister to introduce dope test for government officials and employees before their recruitment.

“To do this infrastructure needs to be developed and efforts are already on,” he added.
