Cops to visit Sweden to record Lucky's statement

PTI, PANAJI | 15 May 2010 09:18 IST

Goa Police are planning to visit Sweden to record the statement of Swedish model Lucky Farmhouse, who used a spycam to expose drug peddler-police nexus in the state, crime branch sources said.

The sources confirmed that they have moved the file to under secretary (Home) to get the financial approval for the visit, which is very crucial to investigate the case.

"The file is with the Home Department. Once the approval is granted, we will send an officer to Sweden to meet Lucky at her residential address," a senior officer said.

Lucky, who had exposed the links of her boyfriend drug peddlar Atala alias Yaniv Benaim with Goa Police, had told the police that she is ready to visit the state only in August.

DSP (crime branch) Chandrakant Salgaonkar had said they cannot wait till August to get the statement.

The investigations should not be an exercise to cover up the criminal activities as it happens in most of the cases where influential people are involved! It is unfortunate that in most of the cases after spending crores of rupees from the public exchequer, the culprits are never punished but allowed to escape! Long live our democracy!!

I do not understand why officers, who are suspended, reinstated in the police department. Does that serve the purpose? Can we trust them not to repeat the same act again? We need clean and transparent people to work in departments such as police whose function are to protect and prevent public from harm rather than to protect criminals.

The Goa government should ensure that a person who is send to Sweden for investigation is neutral and clean officer (with no allegations attached to his post/personality).

Wrong police officer has been assigned the investigation of drug nexus case. Chandrakant Salgaoncar himself is a very corrupt officer in the Police department. As I said earlier I know him ever since the time he joined the Goa Police force. As a PSI he has looted a constable through local goondas at Valpoi of his gold chain worth Rs 20000/- in the year 1984 or 1983. How can one expect clean investigation from such corrupt officer? Since I have worked in the Police Department I know very well that this chandrakant salgaoncar will never conduct a clean investigation. Nerlon Albuquerque was immediately dismissed for his faulty investigation in Scarlet Keeling murder case. Why is Ashish Shirodkar still in suspension and not dismissed till now since the crime he has committed is much more grave than the mistake of Nerlon? Nerlon has been reinstated. Are they preparing to reinstate Ashish soon? One will never get proper investigation from persons like chandrakant salgaoncar. Now chandrakant salgaoncar must be eager to go to Sweden to enjoy at the cost of the Government of Goa as was his habit since he was a PSI at Valpoi.

Goa Police should send some proper officers to Sweden if they do send. Sending any tom, dick and harry like chandrakant salgaoncar will surely result in reinstation of Ashish et al – Thanks Menino (Valpoi)
