Panaji: Lucky Farmhouse, a prime witness in
the drug peddler-policemen nexus case, on Wednesday said she has
given a detailed deposition before the Swedish police in which
she has named Goa Home Minister`s son Roy Naik.
In an exclusive interview, Farmhouse said she was
interrogated by Swedish police twice, the last being in
December 2010. "They also searched my home and took one of my
computers and a camera," she said, adding that they could not
find anything in them.
"I gave them the name of Roy Naik, son of Goa Home
Minister Ravi Naik, in the statement. I told them how many
times he came to Atala`s house for business," she said.
Lucky had spilled beans on her boyfriend Yaniv Benaim
alias Atala`s links with policemen in Goa after catching him
on camera confessing of how some policemen supply him drugs.
The model, who has shifted to Sweden after the expose,
said it was Roy Naik who gave drugs to Atala in the parked car
in Calangute, which is there in the video clips, which she had
"These same drugs were sold by Atala from his `Atala
Coffeshop` in Anjuna," she said.
The Israeli drug lord, who now stands arrested in Peru
after jumping bail in Goa, was running a cyber cafe in Anjuna.
Farmhouse said she is ready to cooperate with the CBI,
which recently took over the case, if they contact her.
Farmhouse, who broke her relations with Atala much before
his arrest in Goa, said that she spoke to him in December last
"I spoke to Atala in December last time. He was in Israel
staying with his sister and phoned me from her house. I don`t
have any feelings for him anymore," she said.
Seven policemen were arrested last year after video
tapes, in which Atala was shown bragging about his links with
the policemen, were exposed.
The role of Goa Home Minister`s son, Roy Naik, was also
under the scanner after the expose.
CBI, after taking over the case, recently said that they
will question anyone whosoever is required for investigation.
"We will question everyone including politicians, if
their role is found in the drug nexus," CBI Joint Director
Rishiraj Singh had said.
