CM Parrikar today expressed the possibility that the ketamine recovered from the factory might not have been manufactured at the unit, but only stored there.
Parrikar was accused by Opposition members during Question Hour for not doing enough to curb the drug menace.
Parrikar said that the state government has not been officially intimated by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) agency about the details of the Goa raid. “Whatever we know about the raid is through newspaper reports and also through information gathered by local police,” he said.
“We don’t know whether the (ketamine) drug was manufactured here. As per my information, it was stored there,” Parrikar said in response to a question from Congress MLA Luizinho Faleiro .
To another question by Congress MLA Pratapsing Rane, about the action the state government was contemplating over the issue, Parrikar said: “I have written to DRI. It is an international racket. The state government cannot do anything… I have already told very clearly it is a central government agency’s inquiry, I cannot interfere in it…” .
