No inputs on Headley's Goa visit: Police

Written by: Staff

Panaji, Jan 5: A senior police officer here has denied receiving any specific intelligence inputs that US terror suspect David Headley had visited Goa in 2009.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, Jan 4, Superintendent of Police Atmaram Deshpande said, "We do not know. We have received no specific intelligence input on Headley's Goa visit."

He was responding to a question when asked about the Pakistani-American terror suspect's Goa links.

The senior police official's comment contradicts numerous media reports that Headley had stayed in Anjuna and Arambol for two weeks last year.

Few weeks ago, state Home Minister Ravi Naik had said, "Goa police have taken necessary note of the reports indicating visit of a certain individual to Goa. And in interest of ensuring security of information, nothing more needs to be stated."

Naik had also said, "The Goa police were maintaining 'close liaison' with central intelligence agencies as well as state police organisations concerned to ensure that relevant intelligence is shared quickly."
