“In view of the arrest of drug lords from Israel Driham David alias Dudu and Yaniv Benaim alias Atala, there was a threat perception to the Home Minister, Mr Ravi Naik’s life and his family in May this year and we had decided to extend ‘Z’ category security to him,” revealed the Superintendent of Police, Security, Mr Tony Fernandes adding that ‘Z plus’ security was not given to him earlier due to the non-availability of the police vehicles.

this story is very intriguing....they has to be much, much more to this story. We need some inside information. I wish someone from the Goa Police would rat on the real deal. We know Roy name keeps coming up in the worst of situations in Goa. I wonder if he still has 500 supporters to march again for him? If he does, then we need to start teaching his people to read and write in Goa, if we are to move ahead.

Why is Chor Viswajeet Rane moving with Z security too? All chors know that they are chors and criminals and hence want this type of security. In fact,the Gua Police failed till today to provide any security whatsoever to the common man of Goa. Gua Police are there to provide security only tot he big CHORS of Goa.
