CBI Returning With Atala

Central Bureau of Investigations officials have produced Israeli drug dealer Yaniv Benaim alias Atala before the local court in Peru on Monday seeking a transfer warrant to enable them to bring him back to Goa.

Atala is a crucial witness to the CBI’s investigations in the police-drug dealer nexus that kicked up quite a controversy in Goa with Home Minister Ravi Naik’s son Roy alleged to be also involved in the racket.

That the drug dealers have connections with the police was made public by Atala’s ex-girlfriend Lucky Farmhouse when she uploaded a video of Atala boasting about his connections with the police and her claim that Roy used to meet Atala regularly dragged the Home Minister into the controversy.

The investigations were transferred to the CBI following a petition filed by the National Students Union of India president Sunil Kauthankar.

Atala in July last year jumped bail granted by the Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances Court here and was arrested in Peru in January this year following a lock out notice issued by the Indian authorities.
