Terror Treatment in India
"Yes, we do beat them up when they don't listen to us. What else is there to do?" -- A staff member at the Paras Foundation addiction treatment center in Mohali, India. A Times of India investigative team found 70 "inmates" of the program sleeping on the floor in one room. Addicts are made to squat and stare at the wall for hours for minor infractions. There is no medical staff. Food is slop thrown together in a squalid kitchen. The Times says inmates "were routinely tortured and abused." Source.
