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.
