Senior police officials confirmed that he case that was investigated by Maina-Curtorim Police, was subsequently closed due to lack of evidence.
“After NCB investigations have pointed out that Chris Costa was involved in drugs angle to Sushant Singh Rajput case, it is necessary that Goa Police should reopen the 2015 case where two youths in my constituency had died allegedly due to drug overdose,” said Lourenco, who represents Curtorim constituency in State Legislative Assembly on Congress party ticket.
He said that after the incident in the year 2015, he had personally asked police to conduct free and fair inquiry and was following up the matter.
“That time, I was criticized for both – for taking the action and also not taking the action,” the Congress MLA commented, adding that he even went to Superintendent of Police (SP) and Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) demanding that the fair investigations should be conducted.

“I have formally put up demand before the CM to ensure that all the drug trade in my constituency along with other constituencies in the State should wiped out,” he said.
