Responsibility to be fixed in drugs missing case: Naik
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.
