Panaji: With the arrest of an Israeli
national for allegedly dealing in narcotic substances, the
firm run by him, which hardly had any turnover despite its
presence in Goa for over a decade, is now under police
"The company run by David Grihas alias Dudu is under
police scanner after the arrest. The company has two locals as
its directors, who will also be questioned," Superintendent of
Police (Anti-Narcotic Cell) Veenu Bansal said yesterday.
He said the company registered as Dudu Division Import
and Export Private Limited was hardly making any business in
the state despite its presence for over a decade.
"The company was being operated from Anjuna beach
village, where Dudu was staying and had registered a profit of
Rs 32,000, that too in 2005," Bansal said.
Dudu, 34, was arrested by sleuths of anti-narcotic cell
with a variety of drugs estimated at Rs 3.81 lakh yesterday.
Bansal had claimed the arrest was a "big catch" as Dudu,
an Israeli national on business visa to Goa was a major drug
dealer and was earlier booked by Maharashtra police in 2008.
"We were preparing his file since long and we had
noticed that many drug dealers were visiting his house at
Anjuna," the SP said.
Goa police have already sealed the bank account operated
by him while thorough investigations are being done to verify
whether he was using the firm as a front to run his narcotics
trade spread across India.
