Posted on Dec 07, 01:28PM | IBNS

In a damage control exercise to clean up the image of Goa police after with a couple of sex scandals involving several policemen in the last four years were unveiled, two of the several cops who were caught have been dismissed from service. In 2009, Hawaldar Santosh Gawas was caught on mobile phone's camera by his own colleagues indulging in oral sex with a prostitute in the police control room van.

Constables Pritesh Naik and Sahadev Sawal had filmed the act. All were subsequently suspended on Dec 5, 2009 after wide media coverage.

Three years after the departmental inquiry, the Goa Police Establishment Board ordered dismissal of Gawas and Naik.

IRB constable Sawal has been re-instated with 'reduction in payment and postponement of future increments'.

Nearly 6 such cases have been reported in the last four years exposing involvement of policemen in sexual acts either with prostitutes or with their own female colleagues. In two such cases, MMS clips were circulated among the police cadres.

In a recent case, three cops were suspended last night for sexually exploiting two call girls.
