Narcotics chain from Goa beaches to Dodamarg discovered
As the marijuana trafficking case is coming into the light, other information related to the issue is also coming up with twists and turns
Dodamarg: As the marijuana trafficking case is coming into the light, other information related to the issue is also coming up with new twists and turns. The investigators are expecting that the main accused will be soon to be discovered in the marijuana racket.
Some years ago in Tilari area of Dodamarg taluka, a marijuana farm was found. Then the police had seized small marijuana plants worth Rs 20-22 lakhs from a mini truck and had arrested some suspects in the case. But then somehow the case was closed as the police had claimed that the marijuana production in Tilara area had stopped completely.
Now the police are taking efforts to investigate the case through trafficking. Whether it is Sasoli rehabilitation project or Virdi of Dodamarg taluka, if one look at the area closely, it can be found that the area is naturally connected to Goa.
Thus it is estimated that the narcotic chain from the beaches of Goa had reached Dodamarg.
The citizens are suspecting that the master mind of the racket could have possible taken the local youth into the racket as most of them go to Goa for their employment on daily basis.
Pratapsingh Rane, ex chief minister and opposition leader discussed the issue with Maharashtra chief Minister Prithiviraj Chavan as expressed a grave concern over the narcotic business in the Dodamarg as well as in the border are of Goa and Maharashtra.
How does it work?
As per the well versed persons about the racket, Dodamarg is an epicenter of the marijuana trafficking. The motor riders from Goa drive in ‘Dhoom style’ and enter Dodamarg on a specific day as per their plan. They hand over the marijuana packets to the eagerly waiting youths in Dodamarg at specific locations and collect the money and drive back to Goa. Then the opium parcels are again collected and redistributed as per the demands.
