The DySP (CID Security) Chandrakant Salgaonkar, formerly posted at the Crime Branch, was suspended yesterday, following an inquiry by the vigilance department. His supension comes after Crime Branch, last week, registered a FIR against him, Congress spokesperson Jitendra Deshprabhu and Mines Department official in connection with a questionable investigation and destruction of evidence in the alleged illegal mining case at Korgao, Pernem.

Sources in the Vigilance Department told GoaChronicle.com that Salgaonkar has been suspended because the government wanted to conduct a free and fair investigation, the government therefore has decided to keep him under suspension.

Department of Mines and Geology in its complaint has alleged that Deshprabhu has extracted 2,00,000 tons of iron-ore and sold it to trader, thus causing a loss of Rs 50 crore to the government exchequer.

A case filed by RTI Activist Kashinath Shetye against Deshprabhu is also currently being heard in the Court of Law on the same allegations of illegal mining.
