NSUI moves HC seeking CBI probe into drug nexus case in Goa

Panaji, Jan 14 (PTI) The Goa unit of the NationalStudents'' Union of India (NSUI) has moved the Bombay HighCourt pleading a CBI probe into the policemen-drug peddlernexus case in the state.

In a petition filed with the Goa bench here yesterday,NSUI Goa chief Sunil Kawathankar demanded that the case behanded over to the central investigation agency as the conductof the police officers probing it was doubtful.

"There''s doubt in the integrity of the police officersinvestigating the case as some of the accused in the case havebeen released," Kavathankar said in his petition.

The petition would be heard next week by the bench here.

Seven policemen were arrested last year after Israelidrug lord Yaniv Benaim alias Atala had confessed about hislinks with the policemen who were allegedly supplying himdrugs.

Swedish national and Atala''s former girlfriend LuckyFarmhouse had shot the confession on the tapes exposing thepolicemen-drug peddler nexus in the state.

NSUI earlier had given 48 hours ultimatum to Goa ChiefMinister Digambar Kamat to hand over the case to CBI or theNational Investigation Agency (NIA).

Kamat, however, had claimed that he has not received anyultimatum from NSUI, which happens to the frontal students''wing of his party.
