GOA: VINOD PALYEKAR FEARS FOR LIFE, IB INITIATES INQUIRY, SECURITY COMMITTEE SEEKS REPORT

Panaji (Goa)  State Security Committee has sought report from Goa police’s Intelligence Branch (IB) after State Water Resources Department minister Vinod Palyekar claimed that he has threat from the drug mafia in the State.

Palyekar, a Goa Forward Party legislator from Siolim constituency, had told a local news channel that he has been constantly stalked by someone. He had also said that he has fear for his life due to constant attack on the drug lobby operating in the coastal state.

“State Security Committee has asked the IB to submit the report within a week on the threat perception to Palyekar. The local police station has also been informed about it,” Superintendent of Police (Special Branch) Umesh Gaonkar said.

He said that Palyekar has been given security on lines with any other state minister.

Gaonkar said that the State Security Committee headed by Deputy Inspector General level officer and comprising of various representatives from Home department, District superintendents of police, Crime Branch, Special Branch amongst others will review Palyekar’s security after receiving the report.

Meanwhile, GFP has said that the concerns expressed by Palyekar are ‘serious.’ “The matter is serious as the minister has expressed his fear. I feel that the State police should investigate into it,” GFP Chief spokesman Trajano D’Mello said.
