Dropping a bomb into the growing allegations of the involvement of senior officers in the Calangute police-prostitution nexus, Calangute MLA Michael Lobo has alleged that it is not possible for a prostitution racket to be running with police-nexus without the patronage of senior police-officers.
“The two constables are being made scapegoats. Inquiry into their association with the prostitution rackets will be the tip of the ice-berg. For the last seven years, this sex and prostitution racket in this popular tourist belt of Calangute had been allowed to flourish by people with vested interests and affiliations with the former regime,”expressed Lobo.
The current police team have worked diligently to crack the sex rackets including the massage parlors and brought the situation under a semblance of control. Certain forces have been trying to target the police team headed by PI Nolasco Raposo.
Therefore, the concerned authorities must identify the corrupt officers and their seniors involved in this racket, he further added.
Vaman Naik and Govind Gawas, head constable and constable accused by the two sex-trade victims were mostly posted at the Calangute police station. Naik is reportedly known to share cordial and favorable relationships with political circles and senior police officials in the state. Naik is expected to file for anticipatory bail today and is currently not traceable.
