All of them were booked under the Prevention of Corruption Act (PCA) and the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act.

R.S. Yadav, Deputy Inspector General of Police, told to the media: ‘In all, six people have been arrested under the PCA and the NDPS Act by the Crime Branch for their links to Atala.’

According to him, the six were attached to the Anti-Narcotics Cell (ANC), which is a police unit tasked to counter drug trade.

Atala named Shirodkar as the officer who used to sell the drugs to him that were seized by the ANC. Shirodkar has also been accused of taking Rs.1 lakh as bribe to release a drug peddler.

The spy video of Atala’s surfaced on YouTube earlier this month. He said in the video about an unidentified person as policeman being linked to the narcotics mafia in Goa.
