A man claimed that he was being framed by police with possession of illegal drugs.
Now, Goa Police admitted today that it has falsely implicated a man, who was identified as "Dudu" David Driham, in a 2010 drug case, and now feel ashamed of executing the plot.
"The Goa police are ashamed of a police sergeant and four police officers, who falsely implicated David Driham, a foreign national living in Anjuna," a bulletin issued by the office of Prime Minister Manohar Parrikar read.
In a press release, there is a separate column that mentions that the department is ashamed of assistant police inspector Sunil Guddlar and four sheriffs, who are in judicial custody after being arrested by the CBI for planting drugs in the house belonging to Dudu in 2010, which caused his arrest.
Dudu’s sister later conducted a sting operation showing Guddlar demanding his release by offering a bribe.
The case, originally investigated by the Goa Police, was later given to the CBI, which is investigating two similar cases of links between police and drug traffickers.
Dudu was released and all charges were dropped.
