“Goa being a tourist destination and due to the closure of dance bars in the neighbouring state of Maharashtra, there is an influx of such elements in the state of Goa,” the 48-page booklet, which was released by Director General of Police (DGP) Bhimsain Bhassi on Friday, said in the human trafficking section.

Summing the crime scenario in the state of Goa, the booklet attributes the increase in the crime rate by 9.59 per cent in 2009 to the free crime registration policy adopted by the state police.

“Owing to the concerted efforts made for free registration of crime during 2009, 3,005 cases were registered under various crime heads as against 2,742 cases reported during the previous year,” Bassi has said in the booklet’s foreword.

“A healthy increase in the registration of offences, particularly property crime, exhibits that policemen in Goa have started overcoming their inhibitions and are beginning to get out of the clutches of a deep rooted malaise of burking that afflicts police psyche,” Bassi said.
