girlfriend of a drug dealer alleged involvement of a

girlfriend, it is ample clear that politicians too are
involved in the case," leader of Opposition in Goa Assembly,

conduct impartial inquiry as their own officers and state
level politicians are allegedly involved in it.

should investigate this case to maintain impartiality.

"Compared to state police, CBI can be influenced by very
few politicians," Parrikar, former chief minister, said.
