Goa government directed to submit Brics food scam report


Panaji, June 20: The Panaji bench of the Bombay High Court on Wednesday directed that the Goa Chief Secretary’s report on the alleged Rs 51 lakh Brics food scam during the 2016 international event, should be submitted to the Goa Human Rights Commission (GHRC). The state government had contended before the High Court that an enquiry had already been conducted. In his petition before the Commission in October 2016, a city lawyer Aires Rodrigues said the contract for Rs 51.60 crore was given to a well known food caterer, but it was allegedly sub-let to another contractor who prepared the sub-standard food in an open space.
