entrust the enquiry in this case to CBI."
Goa government also handed over cases of Atala and the seven policemen to CBI by a letter dated January 21, 2011.
Srivastava, who is also the Home Secretary, said attempts were made to contact Swedish model Lucky Farmhouse, Atala`s ex-girlfriend, who had caught Atala confessing of his links with the policemen.
