"The continuous police action has drastically reduced the supply as well as demand of drug trafficking in Goa," the IGP said. He said the district police, crime branch and the narcotic cell of Goa Police have made numerous seizures and arrests.

Singh has mentioned about the action against drug trafficking in a letter to Goa Forward Party (GFP) MLA Vinod Paliencar, who on Saturday claimed to have submitted a 'secrete' report to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a drug "nexus" between politicians and policemen.
