Goa! Bow thy head in shame! Where else on Earth could thieves dare the Courts of Justice, outrage the majesty of judiciary, in this age of supremacy of law and it’s enforcement?
Last night’s break-in into the premises of the Panaji Subordinate Courts at Althinho only reflects how far and wide the miscreants have ventured to spread their tentacles.
Do we need any further proof that the law and order situation in the State is a matter of grave concern? With crime having reached this alarming level, who is or can feel safe now?
The least that one would expect the Government to do was to ensure that the Judicial institutions and its records are safe from the criminals. This also brings to the fore the pressing need of providing necessary personal security for Judges at all levels.
Unfortunately today it is only the Chief Minister and his Ministers along with their property (most of which is ill-gotten) that is all well protected.
Crime in Goa will thrive as long as we continue to elect Godfathers of crime as our representatives and persons with criminal antecedents are able to infiltrate into the Goa Police.
