Are some police officials keeping Vaman Naik in hiding?

Head Constable Vaman Naik who has been named in the statements of the two sex-trade victims in sexual exploitation case which has thrown open the nexus between police-prostitution has absconded since the last week, when FIR had been registered against him by the panel appointed by Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM). Senior officials investigating the case have told that there is a probability that the Head Constable is been kept in hiding by some senior police officials so as to put a lid on the case.

Naik’s anticipatory bail plea is expected to come up in court for hearing today.  Whether Naik will make his presence at the court is not yet known. Interestingly, the police have not been able to trace his whereabouts.

Sources in the police department have also revealed that Naik is known to be close to both national political forces in Goa and the fear is that besides the police, names of politicians could also come out of the closet.

The statements of the two sex-trade victims once again raises serious questions on the functioning of the Goa Police Department and the alliance of some of its officers with criminal elements like the police-drug peddlers nexus and now the police-prostitution nexus.
