Goa police don’t file FIRs as crime rate would spiral: Top cop

Police officers in the state were reluctant to register FIRs in theft cases as it would increase the crime rate, but they have been told to do so, director general of police (DGP) Mukesh Kumar Meena said on Saturday. He said that Goa police want a drug-free state as narcotics tarnish the state’s image.
