The investigation into the Louis Berger bribery case “could not be completed in the absence of custodial interrogation of former Chief Minister Digamber Kamat,” Goa government informed the state Assembly.
“The application for cancellation of the anticipatory bail granted to accused Digamber Kamat is pending before Supreme Court. Hence investigation in respect of accused Digamber Kamat could not be completed as his custodial interrogation is essential to unearth the deep rooted conspiracy,” Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar said in a written reply on Tuesday to a question tabled by Kamat on the floor of the House.
Kamat is presently a Congress MLA from Margao seat. The Goa Police has been probing the involvement of several government officials as well as politicians and the US company officials in the multi-crore bribery scandal.
