PANJIM: After registering the police-drug dealer nexus and Dudu cases, the central bureau of investigation (CBI) SP S S Gavali said that they will thoroughly investigate all the aspects of the case in the state.  Will the CBI succeed after Chandrakant Salgaoncar has destroyed all the evidence in the cases under his master Ravi Naik’s instance?
"We have formed three teams to investigate the cases. We will investigate into the organized drug racket operating in the state," said Gavali.   On Wednesday, CBI registered two out of the three cases, the police-politician-drug dealer nexus case and Dudu case on directions of the high court of Bombay at Goa.
Speaking to reporters at the CBI office, Gavali said that they have constituted three teams which would be led by inspectors Ashok Yadav, A K Dabas and Joy Damble. "We will also take assistance from Goa government and Goa police to investigate these cases," said Gavali.
Gavali also said that they will pursue the extradition of Israeli drug peddler Yaniv Benaim alias Atala from Peru. Crime branch had arrested Atala and he was released on conditional bail. He went missing while on bail and was later arrested in Peru. "CBI will pursue the extradition of Atala in the case once we receive the case papers from crime branch," said Gavali.
When asked about the arrest of eight police personnel in the Atala case, including police inspector (PI) Ashish Shirodkar, Gavali said, ''We will decide once we examine the case papers.''
Eight police personnel were arrested by crime branch in the police-politician-drug dealer nexus case for their alleged involvement with Atala. He also said that they will try to contact the main witness in Atala case LuckyFarmhouse, who is a Swedish model and Atala's girlfriend. "We will try to reach her any where at the appropriate stage, whether she is in Sweden or any other country," said Gavali.
Asked whether Roy Naik will be investigated in these cases, investigation officer Ashok Yadav's reply was prompt, "We are open to any investigations but we will not name any particular person and we will investigate into the whole case."
Whether they will question former anti-narcotics cell SP Venu Bansal in the Dudu case, Gavali said that he could not jump to any conclusions till papers are examined. Bansal's name figured in the Gudlar case.
