Complaint Against Police Inspector Dattaguru Sawant: PMO Orders Probe
Friday - Mar 17, 2017
Panjim: Acting on the directions of the Prime Minister’s Office the Under Secretary of Goa’s Department of Public Grievances has directed the Director General of Police to conduct necessary inquiry into the complaint of disproportionate assets filed by Adv. Aires Rodrigues against Crime Branch Police Inspector Dattaguru Sawant and to take appropriate action within three weeks. 
 
Adv. Aires Rodrigues in his complaint to Prime Minister Narandra Modi last month had pointed out that Police Inspector Dattaguru Sawant on 18th August 2014 at an auction conducted by the Goa Housing Board had bid a mindboggling amount of Rs. 1,45,86,000 for a plot admeasuring 483 sq. mtrs. at Durga Vaddo in Taleigao. Adv. Rodrigues demanded that Dattaguru Sawant should explain as to how he bid for a whopping one crore forty five lakhs for the plot and had besides also not sought the requisite departmental permission. 
 
Adv. Rodrigues in his complaint also alleged that Dattaguru Sawant through a benami transaction purchased Flat A-102, at Risara Luxuria in Taleigao admeasuring 138 sq. mtrs. for Rs. 89,80,800 where he is currently now  residing. With DattaguruSawant claiming that he had rented the flat for  25,000 a month, Adv. Rodrigues sought that he explain as to how he was paying such a high  rent with a monthly net salary of only Rs 39,570.
 
Adv. Rodrigues further stated that Dattaguru Sawant also furnished that flat to a tune of Rs 20 lakhs which was all purchased from a premium furniture store THE TREASURE located at Dukle Heaven in Taleigao and that Dattaguru Sawant and his spouse Manuja who is a housewife also own Polo cars bearing registration No GA07K2111 and GA07Q2111 respectively.
 
Adv. Rodrigues also pointed out that Dattaguru Sawant was reportedly drawing House Rent allowance despite being in possession of a government residential premises in Block M-52 at the Montepio quarters at Altinho which he has kept closed. 
 
Adv. Rodrigues also drew the attention of the Prime Minister that Dattaguru Sawant through his very close links with the BJP and RSS was inducted as a Police Sub- Inspector in 2002 during Manohar Parrikar’s first term as Chief Minister but his appointment was set aside by the High Court as illegal while the matter is now pending before the Supreme Court since 2003 with Dattaguru Sawant being later dismissed from service in 2004 for allegedly extorting money at Mapusa but managed to be reinstated in 2006. 
 
Adv. Rodrigues in his complaint also stated that Dattaguru Sawant is currently facing proceedings before the Goa State Police Complaints Authority for having as Police Sub-Inspector at Konkan Railway Station at Margao on 1st September 2013 demanded free helmets from the goods consignment that had arrived at the Railway Station but as the two porters refused to give him free helmets, Dattaguru Sawant arrested and implicated them in a false and fabricated case which was not only a grave misconduct on his part but a severe police atrocity.
 
Adv. Rodrigues also stated that Dattaguru Sawant had a criminal record even before becoming a police officer with an F.I.R registered against him in 1999 at the Panjim Police Station for having along with some BJP activists sprayed black ink on then Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Shantaram Naik at the entrance of Cafe Bhosle in Panjim.
