Goa’s Law Commission Chairman Ramakant Khalap has made a sensational claim, pointing to a nexus between the police, top bureaucrats and even some state MLAs with the Hindu right wing group Sanatan Sanstha – the organisation believed to be behind the Goa blast. “Sanatan Sanstha has penetrated into the police department, legislature and even the judiciary. The race has begun to protect perpetrators,” said Khalap. It seems that the Law Commission Chairman is echoing what the Goa Home Minister Ravi Naik had earlier revealed. The Minister had said that the police are investigating the links of State Transport Minister Ramkrishna Dhavalikar’s wife with the controversial organisation. The blast in Margao on October 17 has brought to the fore the ugly face of terrorism in Goa. In a major breakthrough the Goa police have arrested two persons hailing from Karnataka on October 28 in connection with the blast. Deputy Inspector General of Police R S Yadav, said, Vinay Talekar, 30, hailing from Karwar, and Vinayak Patil, 27, had been arrested in Margao. “They have been arrested under several sections of the Indian Penal Code, the unlawful activities act and the explosive substances act,” Yadav said. With these two arrests, the total number of people booked in the blast case now rises to four, including Malgonda Patil and Yogesh Naik, who died of injuries.
