Israeli, Russian mafia export drugs from Goa: NCP

Wednesday July 06, 2011 07:59:35 PM, IANS

Panaji: Israeli and Russian drug mafias based in Goa manufacture and export synthetic drugs like Ecstacy to the US, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) said Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters, Avinash Bhosale, general secretary of the NCP, a ruling coalition partner in the Goa government, said the state government was not doing enough to curb peddling of drugs to both tourists and youngsters.

"Both the Israeli and Russian mafia are widely marketing drugs like Ecstasy to the US," says literature published by the NCP to be used as part of its 'Say No To Drugs' campaign, beginning August.

Ecstasy, also known as MDMA, is a synthetically manufactured 'happy' drug, which temporarily relieves the user of anxiety and its possession is punishable in India under the Narcotics, Drugs and Psychotropic Substance (NDPS) Act.

"Goa being loosely governed, the drug cartels manage to survive by splitting the phases of production - basic chemistry at one location, drug tablet production at another, packaging at a third," it further states.

"We feel that much more needs to be done. The Goa government's action against drugs leaves much to be desired. That is why the NCP is taking this step despite being a partner in government in Goa," Bhosale said.

Seven policemen and two Israeli drug dealers were arrested and subsequently released on bail after a Swedish model and a former girlfriend of an alleged drug dealer uploaded incriminating videos on the web, in which the drug dealer was seen speaking of how police sell drugs to them.

The model, Lucky Farmhouse, also said in an interview to an Israeli newspaper that state Home Minister Ravi Naik's son Roy had links with the drug dealer Yaniv Benaim alias Atala.
