Goa to summon Bansal in drug nexus case, if required

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 16 January 2011 20:31 IST

Home minister Ravi Naik has said the police would summon Arunachal Pradesh DIG Veenu Bansal, if required, while probing into drug peddler-police nexus case.

An exclusive interview of Naik was telecast by Prudent, a local TV channel.

The home minister however did not specify whether the case would be handed over to the CBI if they find need to probe much higher officers, including DGP Bhimsen Bassi.

The Prudent expose with video tapes showing police-drug peddler nexus has compelled the government to set up Special Investigation Team to probe into the case. SP Omprakash Kurtarkar is heading the team.

PSI Sunil Guddler, who was seen on TV selling drugs to Israeli drug dealer Dudu’s sister Ayala and Dudu’s girl friend Zarina, was suspended after the crime branch had verified his involvement in the case.

The sting was conducted by both the girls after Dudu was arrested by Anti Narcotic Cell of Goa police. The cell was headed by then ANC SP Veenu Bansal and assisted by PSI Guddler.

During the sting, PSI Guddler had also revealed that he collects money on behalf of his boss Bansal.

Bansal was appointed ANC chief at the initiative of DGP Bassi.

Though Bansal is today DIG of Arunachal Pradesh, the home minister said they would not hesitate to summon Bansal, if required, for the purpose of investigation.

However, when asked how a junior officer like SP would interrogate the DIG and even the DGP, if required, Naik said he along with chief minister Digambar Kamat would take necessary steps if such a situation arises.

He however did not reveal, when asked, whether the government would hand over the case to the CBI.

The minute you Goans invited so many Russians into your beautiful State, the die was cast for corruption, prostitution, alcohol and drugs..... Many British people, my family included after 20 years of very happy visits, will never holiday in Goa again.
