CBI mulls lie detector test for cops in Goa drugs case
Panaji: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is contemplating to move for lie detector tests for all the policemen and two Israeli nationals who have been booked for police-drug peddling nexus in Goa.
Senior CBI officials said the agency is investigating three different cases related to drug nexus involving a dozen policemen, including a police inspector and a sub-inspector, and two Israelis Yaniv Benaim alias Atala and David Driham alias Dudu.
"We will move an application before Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court situated in Mapusa seeking their permission for lie detector test," a senior official said.
Police inspector Ashish Shirodkar and seven other policemen are being probed for their links with Atala while investigation is also on in the role of sub-inspector Sunil Guddler and five constables for allegedly planting drugs on Dudu.
Earlier, associated with elite Anti Narcotic Cell (ANC) of Goa police, all the accused policemen now stand suspended.
All the cases related to drug nexus were initially probed by the state crime branch, which were later handed over to the CBI following High Court directives.
