Goa is not UP but abusing and assaulting the cops is very common here in the state. This may not be the first case wherein a Goan has physically assaulted the cops, in the past, there are several cases of verbal abuse and beating the cops on the public.
It is a notion these days that most of the nuisance is created by non-Goans especially the labor class, after consuming alcohol.
But, sadly we have been proved wrong on various occasions and now Goa Police have arrested a youth from Gogol in Margao for drinking in public as well as assaulting the cops in public.
The Maina Curtorim Police early morning on Sunday arrested 23-year-old Nihal Faleiro, a resident of near Green Amaze, Gogol for drinking in open space and also assaulting two police personnel, thereby obstructing them in discharging their lawful duties.
According to the complaint lodged by Head Constable Nilesh Komarpant, last night at around 10.45 pm he and his team found Nihal consuming alcohol in open area behind Green Amaze at Kurtarkar building which is a residential area.
When the police requested Nihal not to consume alcohol in the area, given that it is a public place, he started abusing them.
He was then picked up for restraining the police personnel from discharging their duties.
However, as he was being taken for a medical check-up to Hospicio, Nihal began abusing the police, which led to his arrest.
