Panaji: Goa police on Thursday suspended sub-inspector Sunil Guddler, who was caught on camera allegedly selling drugs to two foreign women.
Superintendent of Police (headquarters) Vishram Borkar told PTI that Guddler has been placed under suspension pending inquiry. Earlier, he was shifted from the elite anti-narcotic cell to the security branch of Goa police after his name cropped up in the drug nexus case.
Guddler, who had arrested Israeli drug peddler David Driham alias Dudu in February 2010, was caught on camera hobnobbing with Dudu's sister Ayala Driham and girlfriend Zarina Mazhrunova from Kazakhstan.
Chief Minister Digamber Kamat had asked Director General of Police Bhimsen Bassi to submit a detailed report in the case by Thursday. Sources stated that home ministry had submitted a report to the Chief Minister this evening after which the suspension order was issued. The Crime Branch is investigating the case.
The Israeli drug baron is currently in jail for overstaying in Goa. Besides, a chargesheet under Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act has already been filed against him.
