This lady is the most popular lady in Goa. She is the most corrupt at her level & ammassed lot of weath from fraud deals at Sub-Registrars office, wherevr she has been transferred.

She should be sent to jail first & then investigated for her crimes.Legal procedures should have been initiated years ago. She had support of her Congress colleagues as well.

No doubt, Asha Kamat would have been bribed handsomely & heavily.

Sarpanches are also well known to be extremely corrupt.
