The Times of India on 29th April reported that Tramadol, a painkiller pharmaceutical drug, has been declared a “psychotropic substance” by the government and its sale in the country will now be strictly monitored after the Narcotics Control Board (NCB) said it was being internationally smuggled, and had possible supply links to the global terror group ISIS.  The synthetic opiate is known to be abused on a wide scale by terrorists of the so-called ISIS to suppress pain and boost strength during injury and hence, is also known as the ‘fighter drug’ among international anti-narcotics authorities.
