Goa’s Director of Police Dr. Muktesh Chander must personally probe this
major 52 lakh food scam pertaining to the very substandard and rotten meals
that were served to the police personnel deployed at the just concluded
2016 BRICS summit held in South Goa.

Prime facie it seems that Senior police officers may be involved in his sad
and sordid crime, but only a detailed but swift investigation will reveal
it all. Those officers found embroiled must not be spared but wacked.
Pending investigation the contractor should not be paid a paisa but infact

It would be interesting to see whether any tender for supply of this food
was ever floated.  Arrangements for the BRICS summit having commenced
around six months ago, why was no proper arrangement of amenities for the
well being of the police personnel planned well in advance.

The contract for a whopping Rs 52 lakhs was reportedly given to Amonkar
Caterers from Bicholim who appears to have sub-let the contract to a road
side contractor to supply food for the 5,000 police personnel deployed at
the BRICS Summit.

There is now documentary evidence that those meals for the police personnel
were clandestinely prepared in an open place owned by the police department
near the Verna Police Petrol Pump next to the Verna Church Cemetery. Road
side laborers were engaged for cooking the substandard food in most
unhygienic condition. Water was stored in open plastic barrels and the same
water was used. With thick bushes and grass all around, it is no surprise
that insects and cockroaches found their way in the food served to the
police personnel.

Stray dogs also made their presence at the cooking venue for their share,
while officers of the Food and Drugs Administration were busy at the five
star hotels checking on the food that was going to be served to the

The investigation by the DGP must probe which police official authorized
the use of that police land at Verna for illegally without the permissions
of the Food and Drugs Administration to cook unhygienic food not fit for
human consumption.

With some Police personnel having fallen sick after eating that food, it is
high time that an enquiry be conducted and the police personnel should be
asked about their  experience with that food which even dogs refused to
eat. Sources reveal that spoilt leftover lunch was served as dinner and
leftover dinner was served as lunch the next day which police staff refused
to eat.
