In an important development related to crimes against women tourists, the Goa government has constituted a High Power Committee to monitor investigation of such cases.

The 7-member committee will have Chief Secretary S K Srivastava who is also the Home Secretary as the chairman.The other members of the committee
are: Secretary (Tourism) Dr M M Modassir, Secretary (Women & Child), Secretary (Law), Director General of Police B S Bassi, Director of Prosecution. Special Secretary (Home) Rajiv Verma will be the Member Secretary.

The objective of the committee is to monitor investigation and ensure that there is speedy and proper prosecution in cases of criminal assault on women tourists. The need for such a committee was felt after the state witnessed a spate of cases involving women tourists. There were at least three cases involving three foreigners in the last two months.
