Panaji: Goa Home Ministry will fix the responsibility of the huge amount of drug pilfered from the state police custody, Home Minister Ravi Naik said today.

Naik said he will seek detailed investigation report from the police once their inquiry into the missing drugs from the 'malkhana' (police custody) is over.

"The responsibility has to be fixed in this matter. All the police incharges who headed the Anti Narcotic Cell during last decade will have to be probed," Naik said.

Police-drug peddler nexus has hit Goa police after Israeli drug dealer Yaniv Benaim alias Atala was caught on camera confessing about police selling him the drugs which were filched from the 'malkhana'.

According to the police, 24kg of charas out of 280kg have gone missing from the 'malkhana'.

Six policemen, including Inspector Ashish Shirodkar, were suspended after Atala’s revelation, of which five were arrested and one is absconding. The police had initiated an inquiry into the entire nexus.

The Home Minister said it was the responsibility of all the incharges to check the quantity of drugs registered in Malkhana and the actual quantity in it.

The department will now check the conduct of all the officers, including current police sub inspector Sunil Gudler who is holding the charge.
