Ravi's son Roy sold drugs to Atala: 'Lucky' expose

RUPESH SAMANT (PTI), PANAJI | 14 July 2011 11:54 IST

Lucky Farmhouse, a prime witness in the drug peddler-policemen nexus case, today said she has given a detailed deposition before the Swedish police in which she has named Goa Home Minister's son Roy Naik.

Farmhouse said she was interrogated by Swedish police twice, the last being in December 2010.

"They also searched my home and took one of my computers and a camera," she said, adding that they could not find anything in them.

"I gave them the name of Roy Naik, son of Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik, in the statement. I told them how many times he came to Atala's house for business," she said.

Lucky had spilled beans on her boyfriend Yaniv Benaim alias Atala's links with policemen in Goa after catching him on camera confessing of how some policemen supply him drugs.

The model, who has shifted to Sweden after the expose, said it was Roy Naik who gave drugs to Atala in the parked car in Calangute, which is there in the video clips, which she had shot.

"These same drugs were sold by Atala from his 'Atala Coffeshop' in Anjuna," she said.  

The Israeli drug lord, who now stands arrested in Peru after jumping bail in Goa, was running a cyber café in Anjuna.

Farmhouse said she is ready to cooperate with the CBI, which recently took over the case, if they contact her.

Farmhouse, who broke her relations with Atala much before his arrest in Goa, said that she spoke to him in December last year.

"I spoke to Atala in December last time. He was in Israel staying with his sister and phoned me from her house. I don't have any feelings for him anymore," she said.

Seven policemen were arrested last year after video tapes, in which Atala was shown bragging about his links with the policemen, were exposed.

The role of Goa Home Minister's son, Roy Naik, was also under the scanner after the expose.

CBI, after taking over the case, recently said that they will question anyone whosoever is required for investigation.

"We will question everyone including politicians, if their role is found in the drug nexus," CBI Joint Director Rishiraj Singh had said".

In all such cases where the high profile people are alleged to be connected--the common man would always feel that may be if the investigating agencies were allowed to function in a truely independent manner--may be the rich and powerful could stand a better chance of being held responsible for the acts they might have committed......and here comes the need for a "Lokpal" who is independent and not working under the Politicians or Bureaucrats......

Does Goa really have a "HOME MINISTER"?

Several major incidents have taken place in Goa recently like the death of Melvyn., an extortion case (Cuncolim), a suicide (Chandru Gawas, a sexual & lewd message molestation (Lady Police Officer) case etc by Goa Police under the watch of Ravi Naik.

He has made no attempt to assure the public that serious action will be taken to remedy such events, perputated by Goa Police.

To suggest that all drug pushers in Goa are called ROY`s excluding his Holy Son Roy Naik,is balmy & crazy.

Is it worth having a useless ,good for nothing & crazy Home Minister in Ravi Naik?.

Where is he, when the Public needs him to re-assure them
