Panaji: Goa Police on Thursday said a constable on the run after being booked for reported links with an alleged Israeli drug baron, will soon be arrested.

Sanjay Parab, one amongst six policemen booked in the police-drug peddler nexus case, is missing since first week of March this year.

“Sanjay Parab is likely to be arrested very soon. We have got some indications that he will either surrender or we will arrest him," Deputy Inspector General of Police Ravindra Yadav told reporters this evening.

The constable was booked under prevention of corruption act and narcotics drugs and psychotropic substances act after alleged Israeli drug peddler Yaniv Benaim alias Atala confessed on spy cam about his links with police officers.

Five policemen including Inspector Ashish Shirodkar were arrested in the case.

Parab, who had moved for anticipatory bail in the High Court today withdrew his bail application and his lawyer told the court that his client will surrender before the police.

Crime Branch is investigating the case, in which Atala's girlfriend, Lucky Farmhouse, a Swedish model, is willing to depose before the police.
