Drug investigation: Goa police not cooperating, says Hyd CP CV Anand

Hyderabad: City Police Commissioner CV Anand accused Goa police of not cooperating with the Hyderabad counterparts in narcotic cases. He said Hyderabad police sought the help of Goa police in narcotic-related cases, but they did not cooperate.

The remarks come in the wake of the investigation into interstate drug peddlers. Hyderabad CP was speaking at a press meet on drugs, the dark web, crypto-currency, and couriers.

Recently, the Hyderabad police's Narcotics Enforcement Wing (NEW) busted a gang and arrested 2 interstate peddlers and 6 local peddlers. Interestingly, one of the two interstate peddlers, who was originally from Haryana, is settled in Goa. CP said the names of some of the big drug peddlers in Goa appear in Goan dailies like Herald.

"Following the death of BJP leader Sonali Phogat due to consumption of drugs, the local newspapers in Goa have in fact questioned what the Goa administration was doing (or are they sleeping) when the Hyderabad police team was arresting and taking away drug peddlers from the state," said CP.
