‘Goa mulling action in 2013 drug nexus assembly report’

Panaji, Aug 11 (IANS) The Goa government is contemplating action on a 2013 legislative committee report which has named some officials and politicians as being part of a police-politician-drug mafia nexus, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar informed the state assembly on Tuesday.

Answering a question by Congress legislator Aleixo Reginaldo as to the nature of action being considered, based on the recommendations of the House Committee report, the chief minister said: “The matter is under consideration of the government.”

The legislative committee report, tabled in Goa assembly in 2013, indicted former home minister Ravi Naik and his son Roy for their alleged links to the Israeli drug mafia operating in Goa.

The same report also called former director general of police Kishen Kumar the “kingpin”, as far as providing police protection to the drug mafia was concerned.

Goa draws nearly four million tourists anually and is also known as a narco-tourism destination where drugs are available with relative ease, especially during the tourist season (October to March).
