PTI, PANAJI | 18 November 2013 16:02 IST

Goa government has decided to send a list of 14 Nigerians–who were amongst the 52 arrested for rioting in the state to their Embassy, as they don’t have proper documents needed for initiating their deportation process.

A senior police official told PTI today that out of the 52 Nigerians arrested in Goa on October 31, 38 have managed to get bail from local court, after producing requisite documents.

Rest 14 will remain jailed as they are without valid documents and all are involved in various crimes in Goa, he said.

The state government has decided to send the list of all these 14 Nigerians to their Embassy so that the process to deport them back to their native country can start.

A group of 200 Nigerians had blocked the national highway on October 31 protesting against killing of a countryman.

State Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had said that the murder was due to drug rivalry.
