Although I would have expected these two police persons to be sacked, suspension is just a small step towards justice. Such police officers should be in prison and all assets seized by the courts and handed to the state coffers. The builders should not be allowed to conduct his business on Goan Soil.

This is just the Tip of the iceberg. A further thorough investigation needs to conducted against these Police Officers.So many cases in the past have gone under the carpet and this case of the Arrosim youth Melvyn too would have met the same faith if not for the alert Villagers. The department should hold these police officers equally responsible for the death as they have in every possible way tried to cover the murder................Which they failed to do. They are as good as murderers and have to pay the price for their act. To the people of Arossim, keep the fight going . Melvyns death should be an eye opener for all of us on how the Men in Khaki operate.

We have to give credit where credit is due, Benaulim residents backed by Pacheco have kept up the pressure to get the culprits booked. Can we make this a new beginning to fight against corrupt police? and politicians?

Not just Dalvi but all the police officers who have covered up murders will have blood on their families and posterity will see their families  perish from the curses of the those victims. 

This is what every religion have told us.

Why all this Hungama ???? PI Dalvi is suspended

But why till now are the culprits not brought to book what about the nurderers in the Late Ivonne Paes case at Dabolim.

So called Upright cops like Mahesh Gaokar, Umesh Gaokar, Nigalye and the SP of Police Allen D'Sa should look sharp in the late Melvyn Gomes case and nab the so called Madam and her brother and question them they maybe associates of the Joshi Gutka King but Alan D'Sa the SP should ensure they are not above the law !!! A murder is murder what ever maybe be the reason and the culprits should be hauled up in the Courts to face their sentence.

Diagambar Kamat and Ravi Naik should quit immediately if they cannot uphold the law in Goa and ensure that the lawabiding and honest Goans are safe and protected in their homeland !!! Quit you rogues and scoundrels CM and home minister you are taking Goa to the dogs while you are busy raking  the moolah of Rs.1 crore per day !!!! Do your video conferencing with your police and Madam Sonia Gandhi you bloody Chors !!!!

This is just an eyewash, criminal is conducting criminal case against his colleague, is there any sense in this?. Suspension will be revoked and this criminal Dalvi will be back in action in next six month or so, because without this dog rest of the higher cannot survive. Dismissed corrupt police are back in the police force conducting normal business of hafta collection for themselve and thier bosses and what they are talking about suspended cops.

As long as Ravi Charas Naik hold the home ministry nothing will happen to the criminal in cops uniform.Soon Jivbha would get President Medal and would be back heading some coastal Police station where they can loot tourists as well have free booze and food along with their families.

Arhe Goenkars even in football or hockey match after two caution cards or yellow cards the red card is served that is dissmisal from the playing arena why is this PI Dalvi not given the marching orders the simple red card dissmiss him from service.

If PSI Bhagats residence can be raided why is this PI Dalvi not subjected to a search and raid on his house one will see the ill gotten wealth.

This PI Dalvi was in the process of bribing his way to become a DYSP of Goa Police !!!

Good riddance to bad rubbish.. Dismiss PI Dalvi forthright no questions asked. .
