Police suspended for drug dealer nexus reinstated

 

Goa government today reinstated two senior police officers and five constables who were suspended and arrested for their involvement with narcotics lobby in the state in 2010.

The State Home department has reinstated Police Inspector Ashish Shirodkar, Police Sub-Inspector Punaji Gawas and five other constables who were suspended and arrested after a foreign model exposed their links with Israeli drug lord Yaniv Benaim alias Atala. 

Foreign model Lucky Amori Farmhouse had conducted a sting operation on her own fiance Atala exposing the nexus between police officials in the state run Anti Narcotics Cell (ANC) and drug peddlers. 

Atala was shown admitting that he was purchasing narcotics from the police officers, and had named Ashish (Shirodkar) on the tape. 

Farmhouse later in an interview to media had alleged involvement of Roy, son of then state Home Minister Ravi Naik, in the nexus. 

The Crime branch which was investigating the case had handed it over to CBI which is probing all the officers who were reinstated today. 

As per the order issued by the Home Department all the seven policemen including head constable Husain Sheikh and constables Sahesh Pokle, Sanjay Parab, R S Kankonkar and Sandeep Parab were posted to Goa Reserve Police (GRP). 

All the officials are hereby reinstated into service from suspension with immediate effect, without prejudice to any ongoing action against them, says the order signed by Deputy Inspector General of Police V Renganathan.
