Panaji: Roy, the younger son of Goa Home
Minister Ravi Naik, on Saturday rubbished the allegations of his
having links with drug mafia.
"I have absolutely no nexus with any drug dealings nor
have I met Atala (Israeli drug peddler) or his self claimed
girlfriend, Lucky Farmhouse," Roy Naik told a press conference
at his residence in Ponda town, 30 kms from here.
His statement came following allegations made by BJP that
he had links with people involved in drug trade.
The party had quoted an interview by Lucky in Israeli
media which had claimed that Roy was visiting Atala in Goa.
Lucky had exposed the alleged police-drug peddler nexus
by shooting confession of her boyfriend Atala alias Yaniv
Benaim on spy cam, which had resulted in the arrest of seven
Lucky had also stated that son of a politician was
regularly visiting their place at Anjuna.
"The allegations against me are nothing but a politically
motivated act from the opposition party and from some
politicians who are trying to divert the attention of the
media and the people," Roy claimed.
Roy said for last six months, many criminal cases have
been probed against politicians of Goa either by Goa police or
by the CBI and all these politicians are now trying to divert
the people`s attention by targeting his father.
