Panaji: As a Swedish model, who exposed police-drug peddler nexus in Goa, said police showed no interest in contacting her despite her presence in India, the crime branch today said it wanted her to be a prosecution witness.

"Let her say where in India she is.... I will go and get her statement," Deputy Superintendent of Police (Crime Branch) Chandrakant Salgaonkar, who is probing the nexus, said this evening.

Salgaonkar said the model should cooperate with the police and disclose her whereabouts.

"I want her witness for the prosecution. If she was just around in Mumbai, why did she not tell us? We could have gone to Mumbai. How can we know where she is without her telling us" the DySP said.

Lucky Farmhouse, a Swedish model, had shot on spy cam her boyfriend’s confession talking about his contacts with the police.

The videos loaded on youtube.com had led to suspension of six policemen and arrest of five of them for their alleged nexus with drug peddler.

The model had through an email interview last month said that she had more videos to prove police-drug peddler nexus.

She had also said the son of a senior politician was visiting her boyfriend Atala alias Yaniv Benaim at their Goa house.

In a fresh revelation today, the model said she was in Mumbai during first week of May shooting for music video and everybody contacted her except Goa Police.

Even as police were groping in darkness about her whereabouts, the model on her website www.lucky.nu said no one has problem in contacting her except Goa Police.

"Still (there is) no sign of any police or Interpol. I have read in the news since months back that Goa Police had problems to find me," Lucky said in a post.

"It's very easy to get in contact with me especially when they know where I live. I have my phone number, email etc. I check my email almost every day and my phone is always on," she said.
