Tourism Makes Goa Terrorists’ Target: DGP

Director General of Goa Police Bhim Sain Bassi said the international media attention on Goa and the presence of large number of foreign tourists, makes it a potential target for terrorist attack as terror attacks are planned to grab maximum media attention.

Speaking to media persons after commissioning the Marine Commando Force, he said Goa’s economy would take a severe beating if a terror attack succeeds as tourism is a major activity in the State.

He however assured that the police were developing all required infrastructure to deal with terrorists even though the State does not have an Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS).

He revealed that the Indian Navy, Assam Rifles and Border Security Force were training Goa Police in combat operations so that they are able to handle terror attacks like Bombay.
