Will FIR be filed against Rane, Digambar, Roy & mine owners?


If the Goa government has to follow directives of Bombay high court to file FIR for illegal mining against the person listed by petitioner Kashinath Shetye, then it would include top politicians like Pratapsing Rane, Digambar Kamat, Ravi Naik’s son Roy as well as most of the mine owners and the top officials.

The order, issued by Chief Justice of Bombay High Court Justice Mohit Shah, states that the Goa police has to file the First Information Report as stated by the petitioner.

The order states that “…we dispose of this petition with direction to respondents No.1, 2 and 3 to file FIR in respect of the offences alleged to have been committed by the persons responsible for illegal mining in the State of Goa, including the lessees of the mines and all those who permitted such illegal mining of iron ore and manganese ore, in contravention of the relevant statutory provisions. The FIR to be filed within a period of six weeks from today.”

The three respondents are Government of Goa, Crime Branch of Goa Police and Panaji town police.

Shetye, in his complaint, has alleged that both Rane and Kamat have delivered the cut of money to the high command.

The complaint thus suggests the police to file FIR against them under sections 120-B IPC, 13(1) C and 13(1) D and also under 13(2) of PC Act and all other acts mentioned in the complaint.

Roy Ravi Naik’s name figures among the lease holders, along with Sandip and Deepak Pawaskar.

The complaint refers to involvement in illegal mining as well as abetment.
