Replying to a question related to the drug cases in Goa during the Question Hour, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, who also holds the Home portfolio, admitted that there has been a rise in the number of drug cases in Goa during past few years.
“In 2017, 168 cases of drugs were registered by the police, while in 2018, 222 such cases were registered,” he added, pointing out that this year, till June 30, altogether 114 drug-related cases have been registered.
“As per the directives received from the Ministry of Home Affairs, an Anti Narcotic Task Force Committee has been formed under the chairmanship of DIG Anti-Narcotics Cell,” the Chief Minister said, assuring the House that the drugs confiscated by the police during past two years, which are presently in the custody of the police department, would be disposed of in the incinerator of the Goa Medical College within next six months.
Sawant also stated that ganja and charas are the two main drugs, which are mainly circulated in Goa. “We are probing as to who is the main supplier of drugs to Goa, and further investigation into the same is on,” he noted, informing that a single case of growing of ganja in Goa has been registered, while police have also taken cognisance of information that similar cultivation is taking place in the border area of the state.
