Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Friday claimed that the crime detection rate in Goa stands at 93 per cent.

Speaking to media persons after chairing a meeting with officials of the home department and police administration that reviewed law and order situation in the state, Sawant admitted that some criminal activities do take place
in Goa. But in the same breath he maintained that crime detection rate is very high and stands at 93 per cent.

On the drug trade, he said the narcotic cell and the crime branch jointly conducted raids seizing drugs at various
areas.

“Last year drugs worth Rs 2 crore were seized. This year, the narcotic cell and the crime branch have, so far, seized drugs worth Rs 6 crore in the state,” said Sawant, who also holds the home portfolio.

Patting police personnel on the back for their good work, the Chief Minister said that he instructed the police to strengthen law and order to obliterate
crime.

Most of the people involved in crimes in Goa come from other states, Sawant claimed.
