Correspondent


Order expected

in a few days,

says CID DGP


Karwar: The investigation of the case of iron ore going missing from Karwar Port will be soon handed over to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). An order is expected within few days from the Director-General and Inspector-General of Police, according to D.V. Guruprasad, Director-General of Police (CID).

Addressing presspersons here on Tuesday, Dr. Guruprasad said that Raman Gupta, Superintendent of Police, Uttara Kannada, had written to the DG and IGP requesting him to transfer the case of missing iron ore from Karwar to the CID and the IG Western Range too had expressed a similar opinion, he said. Till now the Karwar police were investigating the case but did not achieve much. About 50,000 tonnes of iron ore seized by the forest officials were exported out of Karwar Port in March last. The Forest department had filed a police complaint against some companies.

Dr. Guruprasad said that the CID is investigating the ore theft in Belekeri Port and has identified 56 exporters and four stevedoring agents allegedly responsible for it. Investigation is complete in respect to one stevedoring agent and some exporters. A charge-sheet against these companies would be filed in the Ankola JMFC Court in a short time, he said.

Investigation pertaining to the other stevedoring agents and the exporters is on, he said. He said that investigation of this case is vast as hard discs and documents of each one of the companies are to be verified. About the terror connection with Bhatkal brothers, he said that the police are keeping vigil on the activities of the suspects who are connected to terror groups.

Mr. Raman Gupta and V.B. Gaonkar, Additional Superintendent of Police, were present.
