Nationalist Students Union of India (NSUI) on Monday filed an affidavit before the Bombay High Court at Goa pleading that investigation about the Israeli drug peddler David Driham alias Dudu should be conducted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
The affidavit filed by NSUI’s Goa Chief Sunil Kawthankar stated that the conduct of Investigating Officer Sunil Guddler, who probed drug seizure from Dudu, has come under suspicion as he was caught on camera hobnobbing with the relatives of the accused.
Dudu is currently out on bail after Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court found several gaps in the investigation.
The affidavit stated that the charge sheet filed by Guddler before NDPS court establishes that he has not investigated the matter effectively and has left gaps in the investigation. It also pointed out that the investigating officer failed to interrogate two girls – a Kazakistan national and an Israeli, who were reportedly Dudu’s girlfriends and were going around with him in the state.
Kawthankar claimed that Guddler had not even taken statement of Dudu’s sister, who was in the flat on the day when police raided it and arrested Dudu.
The affidavit also reads: “During the raid, cargo shipper/exporter documents of Mediterranean Lines and A B Paul and Co in respect of M/s Pure Vakhos Trade Pvt Ltd were also found, however, no investigation has been done on the lines of these documents.”
The petitioner further pointed out that the investigating officer failed to investigate into the bank accounts of Dudu.
