Meanwhile the Goa State Congress party has raised the query over the move of CBI to grant a ‘No Objection Certificate’ (NOC) to reinstate the suspended cops back to their job who were being probed by the agency itself for allegedly selling seized drugs back to the narcotics mafia. “The party will write to CBI headquarters and Prime Minister Narendra Modi questioning how NOC was given to reinstate policemen being probed for their narcotics mafia nexus,” party’s Goa unit spokesperson Sunil Kawathankar told the media. “The CBI has to clarify its position. Is it political pressure? We feel there was political pressure to reinstate these officers,” Kawathankar said, adding that Congress would also write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
