PANJIM: The Goa Unit of the National Students Union of India (NSUI) today prayed to the Bombay High Court at Goa to supervise the police-drugs nexus cases for a proper investigation.  Advocate General Subodh Kantak told the Court that Goa Government has handed over the cases - Police Sub Inspector Sunil Gudlar allegedly selling drugs to two foreigners and Israeli drug dealer Yaniv Benaim alias Atala and seven police officials - to the Central Bureau of India (CBI).
The Congress student frontal organization has sought official confirmation from the Government that the cases are handed over to the CBI.
“We have said that we do not know which cases have been transferred to CBI. Government has said that they would give details of cases to CBI so that we could find out what is to be done in the matter.
One of the prayers my client has made is that after the investigation is being handed over to CBI, it should be under the supervision of High Court for proper investigation,” Surendra Desai, counsel representing NSUI told reporters outside the Court. The matter will be next heard on February 14. NSUI on January 14 had moved High Court pleading a CBI probe into the policemen-politician-drug mafia nexus case in the State. In the petition, NSUI Goa Chief Sunil Kawathankar demanded that the case be handed over to the central investigation agency as the conduct of the police officers probing it was doubtful.
“There’s doubt in the integrity of the police officers investigating the case as some of the accused in the case have been released,” Kawathankar had said in his petition. NSUI said it had to move Court as the investigating agencies failed to properly investigate into the nexus.
“The investigation carried out by Crime Branch was faulty,” Desai argued.
Chief Secretary Sanjay Srivastava had recently written to CBI that Gudlar allegedly stole drugs from the police malkhana and requested to take over both police-drugs nexus cases ‘in the interest of fairness and justice and to impart credibility to the investigations.’

Will anyone give attention to NSUI request? Goa's criminal politicians control every institute including the judicial system. The number of high profile cases that get acquitted is proof enough of Goa's judicial system.
