Goa Crime Branch on Tuesday issued summons to National Students Union of India (NSUI) state chief Sunil Kawathankar who had lodged a campaign demanding shifting of drug nexus case from Crime Branch to Central agencies.
The summons merely says that Kawathankar should come to the police station and did not mention any reasons.
"A Police Inspector from Crime Branch came to my office and served the summons. I have been called to their office tomorrow (Wednesday)," NSUI Goa unit president Sunil Kawthankar told PTI.
Kawthankar is leading a signature campaign demanding handing over of policemen-drug peddler nexus case to central agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or National Investigating Agency (NIA).
"Crime Branch is trying to suppress the campaign against them," Kawathankar said.
NSUI, students union of Congress, had demanded arrest of DSP (Crime Branch) Chandrakant Salgaonkar for failing to probe the policemen-drug peddler nexus case properly.
The students had launched signature campaign across the state, Kawathankar said adding that the signatures would be handed over to Rahul Gandhi in Delhi.
"The signatures would be handed over to our leader Rahul Gandhi during NSUI's national executive meeting," he said.
Swedish model Lucky Farmhouse had exposed drug peddler -policemen nexus in Goa after she shot on spy cam the confession of her drug peddler boyfriend, Yaniv Benaim alias Atala.
