The Government apparently is now taking the police-drug dealer nexus seriously as Governor Dr. S S Sidhu on Saturday summoned Home Minister Ravi Naik along with senior police officials to check on the matter.
The Governor is reported to have quizzed Ravi Naik and the senior police officers as to why former Superintendent of Police Veenu Bansal is not summoned as yet for questioning in the case.
That police were involved in selling drugs was established when Veenu Bansal headed the Anti Narcotic Cell of Goa Police and the final blow came when his handpicked officer PSI Sunil Gudlar was caught on camera selling narcotics to foreigners and also boasting about his senior accepting bribe.
It is learnt that though Chief Minister Digambar Kamat was also summoned for this meeting, he could not make it and was represented by Chief Secretary.
Meanwhile, there are rumours that the top brass of Goa Police though embarrassed by the Gudlar incident, are working overtime to protect their Indian Police Service colleague Veenu Bansal who is reportedly quite influential in the corridors in Delhi.
