  1. It never was any Property Dispute & neither Panchayat Poll dispute . It was a planned Criminal Conspiracy and well timed & presumed to be a fall out of my environment protection Battles at The National Green Tribunal ,Pune Bench which has caused irritation to many Environment Polluters in the state of Goa . The accused Sona alias Sairaj ,a resident of Majorda is a Known Goon & extortionist & his 10 accomplices , That this is his 5th Brutal assault in the Jurisdiction of Verna & Colva Police Stations . What surprises me is that Verna Police Personnel were witnesses to the Crime and allowed the Accused & his accomplices to escape . What Instructions Hon’ble Chief Minister has directed today to the Police is absolutely right & in the right Perspective . I am Confident that Hon’ble Chief Ministers Directions will definitely curb this menace & Verna PI Uday Parab will pursue investigation in the right perspective . .
