Goa cops framed Israeli national in drugs case



Panaji: Goa Police on Wednesday admitted to have falsely implicated Israeli national David Driham alias 'Dudu' in a 2010 drugs case and are now feeling "ashamed" of the frame-up.

"Goa Police are ashamed of (the act of) a police sub-inspector and four constables falsely implicating David Driham, an Israeli national living at Anjuna," a newsletter released by the office of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said.

In the newsletter, there is a separate column mentioning that the department is "ashamed" of police sub inspector Sunil Guddlar and four constables, currently in judicial custody after being arrested by CBI, for planting drugs in the house of Dudu at Anjuna in 2010, following which he was arrested.

Dudu's sister later conducted a sting operation showing Guddlar demanding bribe for his release.

The case, initially investigated by the Goa Police, was later handed over to CBI which is probing two similar cases of the nexus between policemen and drug dealers.
