Goa police can only catch the end people involved and outsiders. What about the localites and foreigners involved?

law and order as far as policing goes is all about showing statistics.

They have to one in a while register small cases like they catch matka bookies and confiscate say Rs. 269/- OR if you want to register theft of your mobile they tell you to register as lost so that in the statistics it does not fall under THEFTS.

Well said by everyone.

Hope Mr. Bansal is reading all this.

Guys like Bansal are fit only to catch people like the Gurkha selling dope in the college. Can he go out and catch the drug sellers like Atala, Dudu etc? These guys surrendered themselves.

Oh Bansal, good at least you people suddenly wake up from your siesta. I can not believe that this trade was going on for past 10 years and you had turned a nelson's eye on this? How come suddenly you realised to nab him? Well, the facts are written on the wall. How many more to come? We are waiting

Good that some action is being taken. But the most important thing is to nab the king-pins or big fish behind the curtain of the drug trade! Catching small fish without going to the roots will not do much good!

When a PI job is bribed by the Minister for about 25 Lakhs INR what kind of morals/ethics should we expect from such men/women in uniform.

Even for Constables there is a bribe ... RTO everyone knows about it

So until the bosses who make the decisions are not nailed this mess is going to continue ... we need a revolution not against politicians but every Wrong Human being who uses the wrong ways to get over the law.

Stronger Civilian Law and a faster Judiciary can make this happen.

Mr. Veenu Bansal, when are you going to raid and nab the guys who are selling drugs along the beaches and those are not in grams but in kilos? Can you catch these guys? Do you have the guts to go and raid these guys, who are top shots and making money in lakhs and crores? Were the drugs caught worth only 90,000/- and were they only 850 gms? I don’t think so. You went for an easy target to earn some glory. Your own departmental Inspector! You could not raid and catch him. Anyhow this is a very small victory for you without any cheers because this was done due to the pressure from the students who kept on complaining about it. And please stop giving vague statements to the press. Start keeping a track along the beaches where all this nonsense goes on day and night. Any how this is a very very small step in the right direction. Wake up GOA POLICE, it is time to hit the rod – Menino (Valpoi)
