Sawant is accused in drug nexus, says NSUI vice-president in memorandum

National Students Union of India vice-president, Goa, Sunil Kavthankar on Wednesday called on Goa Governor B.V. Wanchoo and submitted a memorandum seeking an unbiased probe in the Tarun Tejpal sexual assault case. In his letter to the Governor, he also demanded that investigating officer Sunita Sawant be replaced by any a “sincere and upright officer, who cannot be influenced”.

He also demanded the immediate arrest of BJP national spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi for revealing the name of the victim on a social networking site.

Mr. Kavthankar said Ms. Lekhi’s act was “shocking, disturbing” and showed “complete insensitiveness to the sentiments of the victim, society and the law of the land”.
