Goa minister’s sons draw salaries as personal assistant, pvt secy

Both the sons of Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik are being paid salaries from the state govt coffers.



Panaji: Both the sons of Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik are being paid salaries from the state government coffers as they are shown to be his personal assistant and
private secretary.

A written reply tabled on the floor of the House by the Home minister mentions that his son Roy Naik is drawing a salary as the personal assistant while his second son, Ritesh Naik is being paid as a private secretary.

While Roy draws salary of Rs 19,904 monthly, his second son, Ritesh earns Rs 29,441. Their appointments are on an ad-hoc basis and have been cleared by the General Administration department. Both are shown as being attached to
the office of the Minister for Home.

Interestingly, Roy came under scanner during the drug nexus investigation in Goa. Swedish model Lucky Farmhouse, former girlfriend of drug lord Yaniv Benaim alias Atala had said that Roy was frequenting their place at Anjuna beach.

Also, the 30-year-old was in news again when he was provided special security cover by the department.

The security review meeting held last year had approved him a Personal Security Officer (PSO) after notorious gangster Micheal Fernandes confessed of receiving contract to harm Roy.

British teenager Scarlett Eden Keeling`s mother Fiona Mackeown had also told the Goa Children`s Court that Roy was involved in drug dealing after her bruised semi-nude corpse was found at Anjuna shore on February 18, 2008.
