In a very embarrassing instance, a local man from Goa, resident of Karasswada was found involved in the Rape case of a 20-year-old girl from Maharashtra after spiking her drink with a drug. It has also revealed that he did the recording of the sexual act on his mobile phone. The name of the accused is Hanif Mohammad. According to the sources the girl came to Goa with one of her friend on vacation and later came in contact with Hanif who took her to the club in Anjuna where he came in contact with drug peddler Nana and purchased the drug from him which he used to spike the drink of the girl.
The sources have said that the incident took place at one of the guesthouses in Anjuna where he took the girl after giving her drug mixed with the drink. After the girl became semi-conscious he apparently raped her and also recorded the sexual act in his camera. This incident came into the light when the girl was admitted into the local hospital in a very serious condition where she was foaming from her nose and mouth. Doctors immediately shifted her into GMC where she is reportedly struggling for her life.
Doctors have informed that this is the clear case of drug overdose. After receiving the information police swung into the action and arrested Hanif and drug peddler Nana, who were later remanded to judicial custody. The sources revealed that the girl was working in the film industry of Mumbai.
The Anjuna Police have registered FIR in this case against the accused under sections 328 of IPC for causing hurt by means of poison, Section 376 for rape and section 354 for assaulting and using the criminal force for outraging the modesty of woman. Initially Hanif did not reveal anything but when police took him for the interrogation he started telling everything, he only told the police that, he recovered the act into his mobile camera although the intention behind recording is not yet known.
This incident again raised the issue of the safety of female in the state. Use of drugs is taking place openly in the clubs and it has become clear with this incident. Is no one safe here? Criminal activities do flourish in any tourist significance places and Goa does not remain immune to it anymore. The shameful situation is the locals are involved into these criminal activities. Police may be getting incompetent to crack the drug peddling or do not want to crack it all together? Many political parties are taking up the less significant issues, while closing their eyes towards the serious issue of drug peddling in Goa. Many of the tourists come to Goa in a search of drugs, Goa which is known as Paradise on earth is also becoming the Paradise of Drugs? Please do leave your most valuable comments and suggestions on this serious issue.
