Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Digamber Kamat
Monday said the state government is weighing the proposal to
hand over the policemen-drug peddler nexus case to the CBI.

"The state Home Ministry`s proposal to hand over the
entire drug nexus investigations (to the CBI) is under active
consideration," Kamat said.

He said the state Home Ministry has already moved the
file and "I am considering it".

The state government has been facing flak after the Crime
Branch made no substantial breakthrough in the investigations
into the policemen-politician-drug peddler nexus cases, which
have kept coming into light in the state

Home Minister Ravi Naik was also in the line of fire for
allegedly derailing the nexus probe.

Two big Israeli drug lords - Atala alias Yaniv Benaim and
Dudu alias David Driham - were arrested by the state police.
While Atala was arrested after his former girlfriend Lucky
Amori caught him in a sting confessing about his links, Dudu
was arrested with cocktail of drugs.

The sting operation conducted by Dudu`s sister, Ayala
Driham, had caught Police Sub Inspector Sunil Guddler, selling
drugs on the camera.

Opposition BJP had raised the demand to hand over the
probe to the central agency following which Congress` Frontal
Students Union, National Students Union of India (NSUI) had
also moved the High court demanding a CBI probe into the case.
