Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said that the Goa government is refusing to hand over the police drug mafia nexus probe to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) despite the recommendation of the home department.
Leader of Opposition Manohar Parrikar on Friday said that chief Minister Digamber Kamat and Home minister Ravi Naik were hiding the file which has recommended that the enquiry be handed over to CBI.
"I had asked for the file on behalf of the ad hoc committee (Parrikar is also the chairman of the legislative assembly's ad hoc committee on Home), but I could not get it," he said at a press conference on Friday.
Seven policemen were arrested after Swedish model Lucky Farmhouse exposed nexus between drug mafia and police by shooting the confession of her drug peddler boyfriend on spy cam.
BJP has decided to raise the issue during the forthcoming state legislative assembly session.
