Panaji, Jan 13 (Agencies): Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat on Thursday, asked the Home Ministry to submit a report in the cases exposing nexus between State police officers and drug dealers.

Kamat held a meeting with Home Minister Ravi Naik, Director General of Police Bhimsen Bassi and others in the backdrop of a recent sting operation showing a Sub-Inspector pushing drugs and also another development in which Israeli drug baron Yaniv Benaim alias Atala, apprehended last year in Goa, was arrested in Peru.

“I have asked them to submit a detailed report," the Chief Minister said.

Kamat has also asked the Ministry to submit a report on the custodial death of Cypriano Fernandes (39), a Non- Resident Indian who died after being arrested for assaulting his neighbour.

The Director General of Police said they will initiate action against Sub-Inspector Sunil Guddler, caught on camera allegedly selling drugs, after Crime Branch submits a report.

Guddler was caught selling charas in a sting operation conducted by two Israeli girls, whose kin David Driham was arrested by the Sub-Inspector in a narcotics case last year.

Bassi said efforts are being made to bring back Atala, who has been arrested by Interpol in Peru. Atala, who had jumped bail and fled Goa, is an important link in the policemen drug peddler nexus case.

Last year, Atala was caught on the tape confessing to his girlfriend about his links with the Goa police.
