CUNCOLIM: A police officer attached to the Cuncolim police station is alleged to have made demands for money or else frame the innocent into cases where he will not easily come out. It is being notified to the senior police officer at district level for enquiry and action against the extortionist cop. It is a case of one of the survivors of the Cabo de Rama picnic tragedy.
Our correspondent said that the same police officer was allegedly involved in extorting money from the survivors of another tragedy at the same beach more than a year ago after threatening to implicate them in the drowning death of their colleague.
In the instant case, a mother of a survivor approached Margao SDPO, DySP Umesh Gaonkar and narrated how his son was being harassed by the police officer under the pretext of recording statements on the incident. The mother approached the police after she received a call from her son that the officer is demanding money from him.
When contacted, DySP Gaonkar confirmed that the mother of one of the survivors approached him and complained of the demands made by the police officer. “ No sooner, I heard the complaint of the mother, the police station in charge of Cuncolim , PI Nelson Albuquerque has been directed to conduct a detailed inquiry into the episode”, he said, adding that PI Albuquerque has been directed to submit the inquiry report by Monday.
Incidentally, it is reliably learnt that the same police officer had demanded Rs 50,000 from a group of youngsters after one of their colleague drowned at the Cabo beach over a year ago. The survivors collected the money and handed it over to the officer after he allegedly threatened to book them for murder. When this was brought to the notice of DySP Gaonkar, he said he has no such idea of the incident. Meanwhile, the Cuncolim police on Sunday recovered the body of Noel Milagres Pereira from Cabo de Rama.

Woh! Cuncolim Police Station is always in the news. Then PSI Bossuet D' Silva was also caught red handed accepting bribe of Rs. 50000 at this same police station, was suspended for a while. Now he is DySP. This shows that corrupt criminals in uniform are rewarded. The infamous case of lockup killing or custodial death of Datta who was killed and hanged to a tree outside the police station. 

With the help of Nelson, Joaquim Alemao has been successful in troubling his opponents including Dr. Jorson Fernandes. There was another ASI now retired Tony Camara, was collecting money for D'Silva and other police officers. Cuncolim police station is a haven for police officers in extorting money from illegal forest contractors, matka and industrial units.
