Panaji: Goa home minister Ravi Naik today said action would be taken against police inspector exposed in a video for his alleged links with drug peddlers within next two days.

Naik said state police officers are studying the video footage uploaded on Youtube. "The action would be taken in next two days," he said.

The controversial tape has alleged that inspector Ashish Shirodkar, earlier attached to state's anti narcotic cell (ANC), was stealing drugs from the police lockers and selling it to the drug peddlers.

The video, uploaded two years back, has Israeli national Atala, allegedly involved in state's drug trade, confessing that Shirodkar has been giving him protection and also providing the drugs confiscated during various raids.

The footage which is being examined by the police also shows Atala claiming that the drugs sealed by the court after arrest of the drug sellers was stolen by Shirodkar and later pushed back in the market.

"This should not have happened. If officers who are supposed to work for the people and weed out illegalities like drugs are acting like this, we will not spare them," Naik said.
