CBI sources reveal another shocking fact that the Crime Branch was in possession of this information as early as 2011, but they chose to sleep on the crucial information.
The government has set-up a House Committee to also investigate into the politician-police drug nexus. The committee chairman Francisco Xavier Pacheco (Mickky) is expected to release House Committee report shortly.
